Email settings - IMAP & POP3

No ratings

Setting up your email client for the first time can seem a little complicated, but once you know the basics, you can get yourself up and running in no time.

 

Our Recommendation 

You have two options when setting up your email account on a device and our suggestion is to use IMAP, this is a good idea if you use lots of devices to access your emails and if for any reason, you have an issue with your client/device you'll still be able to access your emails using our webmail service.

 

Account Type  IMAP (recommended)  POP3 
Log in /Username username@talktalk.net username@talktalk.net
Incoming mail server mail.talktalk.net mail.talktalk.net
Incoming Port 993 995
Incoming SSL Yes Yes
Outgoing mail server smtp.talktalk.net smtp.talktalk.net
Outgoing Port 587 587
Outgoing START/TLS Yes Yes
Outgoing Authentication Yes Yes

 


Some email applications might ask you to configure the (Incoming) Authentication in Advanced Settings: select “Password” or “Normal password” (make sure you do not use “MD5” or “Encrypted password”). If you use Outlook, please make sure the “Secure Password Authentication (SPA)” checkbox is not ticked in your account settings as we do not support SPA.

Unfortunately, if you’re not connected to a TalkTalk Internet connection it’s not possible to access your email account on a device such as a laptop, smartphone or tablet. Access via third-party networks such as other broadband and mobile providers is not possible. 

 

Top Tip: Why not create a @talktalk.net email address which allows access via a mobile device? This can be done in My Account.

If you use either of these email addresses then head over to Virgin Media for the correct settings.

 

Are you using Microsoft Outlook?

If your email address isn't one of those listed, it's best to contact the email provider directly. They'll be able to provide you with the correct settings and support with their services.
