Email apps

If you want to set up Xtra Mail in Microsoft Outlook or Mac Mail, use the IMAP or POP3 settings below.

You can also get support from the Outlook and the Mac Mail support websites:

If you want to use Xtra Mail on an app, there are security requirements. The app needs to support 1024-bit or 2048-bit AES ciphers and TLS1.0 or higher protocols. We don't support the RC4 cipher or the SSL and SSL3 protocols. Check with the software vendor to see if the app is compatible with Xtra Mail.

IMAP settings

If you're setting up Xtra Mail on your phone or tablet, IMAP would be best for you. It doesn't take up too much space on your phone. You can use it for email apps such as Microsoft Outlook. See instructions on setting up Xtra Mail on your phone

POP3 settings

These are the standard settings used by most email apps. POP3 uses a lot more space on your computer as it stores a copy of all your emails on your computer. If there are lots of emails to download, it could use a lot of data when setting your email up for the first time. Windows 8 Mail does not support POP3.
