Rackspace Email and Hosted Exchange settings

This article helps you set up Rackspace

email on a
desktop client (such as Microsoft® Outlook® or Mac® Mail) and on
your mobile device. You can either use our Email Help Tool or enter the
settings manually.

Email Help Tool

Post Office Protocol (POP), you can find information for specific clients and
