POP and SMTP Server Settings of Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo! Mail and More 

( Updated in Nov, 2014 )

If you handle emails through desktop email clients, you need to set up the incoming mail server (POP) and outgoing mail server (SMTP) correctly before you start sending and receiving emails.

Here we summarize the POP and SMTP server settings of all commonly used email services. They are all collected from the official sources (namely, the official websites of Gmail, Outlook/Hotmail, Yahoo! Mail and AOL Mail, etc.). But your email service provider may change its mail server settings without any prior notification. It is suggested you contact your email service provider in case you encounter any error during the account setup.

In most mass mailing software, you only need to set up the outgoing mail server, namely the SMTP server, because the software is sending mass emails out only.

In 1and1Mail, you only need to set the SMTP server correctly.
