E-Mail POP3/IMAP Access

If you use an E-Mail client such as Eudora, Entourage, Mail, or Outlook [Express], Use these settings to configure your account.

  • Incoming POP3 Server – mailbox.siliconco.com
  • Outgoing SMTP Server – mailbox.siliconco.com
  • IMAP Server – mailbox.siliconco.com

POP Account

Your username is your full email account, and your password is the password selected when your account was created. Use the SMTP authentication to use our mail system if you are not able to use your Internet Providers SMTP server (enter in your full email address and password for authentication credentials in your account setup). You may use SSL security if you wish as well.

 

IMAP Account

Use the same information as above for your username and password, however choose IMAP as your account type.

IMAP or POP3? – Which is for me?

If you use one primary computer for your email, then POP3 is a good option for you. You also have the ability to use our webmail if you are away from your primary computer. If you use multiple computers, or have a HipTop/SmartPhone you collect your messages, then IMAP may be the solution for you. IMAP syncs the messages between the devices setup with the IMAP account, and are stored on the server until you delete them from one of the devices with the IMAP settings.

 

Webmail

Access your POP3 or IMAP email account anywhere you have access to a web-browser. Our webmail application (http://mailbox.siliconco.com) allows you to view your mail anywhere, even without your primary computer. Our webmail also integrates Google Maps, Traffic reports and a host of other useful features.
