Connecting external IMAP/SMTP email accounts to your Mailivery dashboard allows you to manage all communications from one platform. In this article, we'll walk through the step-by-step process for connecting any third-party IMAP/SMTP email to your Mailivery dashboard.


Step 1: From your Mailivery dashboard, click on the "Add Email Account" button found on the right-hand side.


Step 2: Select "Other" from the email provider options.


Step 3: Fill out your IMAP/SMTP settings and password. You can ask your IT-admin or search the web for the IMAP settings of your public e-mail provider.


You should only use encrypted ports with Mailivery. Encrypted ports for SMTP are 465 or 587; for IMAP 993.
