Email Port Numbers

Your email client software may ask you for the POP, SMTP and/or IMAP port numbers to use. The following list of ports should assist you with entering in the correct port numbers into your software:

Non-SSL EMail Port Numbers:
  • POP3: Port 110
  • SMTP: Port 25 or 9999 (TLS via 587 is also available)
  • IMAP: Port 143

SSL EMail Port Numbers:
  • POP3: Port 995
  • SMTP: Port 465
  • IMAP: Port 993
SSL TIP:: Your email software will likely give an error when trying to access our server via SSL to send/receive email. This is because you have entered in your own domain, like mail.example.com, for the SSL Mail Server Name, but there is no legitimate SSL certificate that exists for your domain. You can avoid the error by either "accepting" the certificate error, or by changing the SSL Mail Server Name to the actual name of our server, such as www8.qth.com (check your Web Hosting Instructions for the name of the server your website is on)
