A mail client is an application that you use to check your emails. The mail client can be either web-based or a desktop application such as Microsoft Outlook or Express.

Why do you need to configure the mail client?

Do you know? You can configure your mail client to receive emails from any account you setup through cPanel. For example, if you use Microsoft Outlook and want to configure the application to receive and send emails from an account created in cPanel, what you can do is setting cPanel to automatically configure your Microsoft Outlook.

When you need to configure email on any mail client, you would need to know specific information in order to create the account. The most basic information you’ll need to know includes:

  • Username
  • Password
  • Mail server name

After that, you can then configure your email user further by setting it up as an IMAP or POP address and enabling secure ports.
