Mail Server

General Email Server Settings

The exact steps to set up your email client differ based on the client. In general you will need the following information. This assumes that you've created a Bravenet email address in the email tab of your account already. Below we have the recommended settings, we highly recommend you use SSL encryption, and the IMAP protocol, when available.

 Incoming Mail Settings 

  • Email Protocol: IMAP 
  • IMAP Server: mail.bravehost.com
  •  IMAP Port: 143
  •  Connection Security: TLS/StartTLS
  •  Username: The email address you are checking, e.g. [email protected]
  •  Password: The password for this specific email account. 
  • Authentication Type: Password 


Outgoing Mail Settings 

  • SMTP server: mail.bravehost.com 
  • SMTP port: 587
  •  Connection Security: TLS/StartTLS 
  • Username: The email address you are sending from, e.g. [email protected] 
  • Password: The password for this specific email account.

 This outgoing mail server requires authentication (this is an option in some email clients, which must be checked). If no password is set, you will receive a "Relay Access Denied"
