General E-mail Set-up Information:

These are the settings to use when you use a secure set-up for your e-mail client. Using a secure log-in instead of text prevents malicious attacks and hacking your e-mail account to send spam because the log-in information is encrypted.

Links to specific instructions for a number of different e-mail client programs are found below, after the general information.

POP3 Server Name:

The POP3 Server is abbi.shenvalleyonline.net

SMTP Server Name:

The SMTP Server is abbi.shenvalleyonline.net

User names:

The e-mail user name is your e-mail address (name@yourdomain.com)

Passwords:

Strong passwords must be used for e-mail access for increased security. Strong passwords have at least 8 characters, contain both upper case and lower case letters, numbers, and special characters (symbols or punctuation) and SHOULD NOT include names or dictionary words. The password strength for your e-mail accounts must be at least 50 (on a scale of 0 to 100).

As a guide to check passwords, the website www.passwordmeter.com/ will show the approximate strength of a password. It is not exactly the same algorithm used on this server but it is close.

Authentication:

Authentication is required for outgoing e-mail (SMTP). Select "Use same settings as my Incoming mail server".

Security:

Use of SSL or TLS for an encrypted connection to increase sever security for both incoming (POP3) and outgoing (SMTP) servers is required.

Server Port Numbers:

The secure Incoming Server (POP3) port is 995
The secure SSL Outgoing Server (SMTP) port is 465
The secure TLS Outgoing Server (SMTP) port is 587
