    What are my e-Mail settings?

    Please navigate to WEBMAIL AND SETTINGS, insert your e-Mail address or domain name and you will be provided with the webmail URL for your e-Mail account@yourdomain.co.za as well as the recommended settings as per example below:
    Your webmail: Please refer to https://www.redcactus.co.za/webmail
    Username: john.doe@yourdomain.co.za (john.doe should be your email, i.e. info)
    Password: Forgot Password? Reset this here (Legace Clients)
    WHMCS and Direct Admin reset password here
    Plesk host panel reset password here
    Should I use POP or IMAP?  Red Cactus will always recommend IMAP with SSL enabled.
    The difference between Pop3 and imap.

    1. From the Home screen, select “EMAIL”

    2. Tap on the “MENU ICON” in the top left corner.

    3. Now tap on the “SETTINGS ICON” in the top right corner.

    4. Select “ADD ACCOUNT”.

    6. Enter your USERNAME (full e-Mail address) and PASSWORD. Then tap on “MANUAL SETUP”.

    7. Preferably select IMAP account as you would want to sync your device with the mail server, whilst still being able to download messages to your computer.

    8. On the “INCOMING SERVER” settings, input your Username (e.g john@domain.co.za), associated password, IMAP server (Locate you mail server here), Security type (SSL), Port number (993). Enable “SHOW PASSWORD” in order to confirm the password is correct and then disable again.

    9. For the “OUTGOING SERVER” settings, input your Username (e.g john@domain.co.za), associated password, IMAP server (Locate you mail server here), Security type (SSL), Port number (465).  Once completed, click on “SIGN IN” at the bottom right corner.
