It is very convenient to be able to access email on the go, and chances are you will find you need to set up your Yola Mail email on your mobile device or external mail client, such as Outlook or Mac Mail.

The specific steps to doing so varies with every mobile device and mail client, however there are generally a few common steps you need to follow. If you find that you are unable to receive or (more commonly) send emails after setting up Yola Mail externally, you can try the following suggestions to resolve the issue:

- Your username should be your entire Yola Mail email address.

- Your incoming and outgoing mail server settings should always be "mail.yourdomain.com"

- Switch the SMTP port setting to 587 or 8025. Some service providers block the default port (normally port 25) for security reasons.

- Ensure the "My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication"/"Password Protection" checkbox is checked.

- Ensure the "SSL Protection" checkbox is unchecked.

If you still have trouble receiving or sending emails, you can try deleting the mail account on your mobile device or mail client, and setting it up anew - this often helps!

Hello Jo

I'm afraid that I'm not able to locate your Yola account, using the e-mail address you have for our forum. Can you please let me know the domain name to which you added Yola Mail? I'll then be happy to have look into this.
