This article helps you set up Rackspace Email or Hosted Exchange 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
The Email Help Tool guides you through the entire setup process. The tool automates the setup process for supported email accounts and clients, or provides instructions for manually configuring your client.
Access the tool at Rackspace Email Help Tool.
Manual configuration settings
If the Email Help Tool doesn’t offer instructions for your mail client or if you want to set up your client directly, you can manually configure your email client or device by using the settings in this section.
Note: If your email uses an Exchange mailbox and you don’t want to set up the connection to use the Internet Message Access Protocol (IMAP) or Post Office Protocol (POP), you can find information for specific clients and devices in Configure email clients and mobile devices for email hosted on Exchange.
To learn more about the differences between IMAP and POP, see IMAP and POP mail protocol comparison. We recommend using IMAP for the incoming mail connection.
The following server settings provide a secure connection by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL):
|Protocol||SSL server name||SSL port number|
