POP is bad. IMAP is good.

Completely annoying when your e-mail isn’t synchronized because you on your old provider used POP instead of IMAP.

Follow our guide below to get started using our IMAP protocol with Outlook and always be in sync accross devices.

Open Outlook to start the setup phase:

 

1. Go to the File tab

Now, just above the Account Settings button, click Add Account.

2. Click on “Manual setup or additional server types

3. Now, on the Choose Your Account Type” select “POP or IMAP

Add your user information and your GMEngine Mail information.

Account Type: IMAP

Incoming mail server: mail1.gmengine.com

Outgoing mail server (STP): mail1.gmengine.com

Then, now add your logon information as shown below

Click on More Settings and select the Outgoing server tab.

Check the box next to My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication 

Select the radio button next to Use same settings as my incoming mail server.

 

In the same window, go to the Advanced tab and verify the following:

Incoming server (IMAP): 993

Incoming server encrypted connection: SSL/TLS

Outgoing server (SMTP): 465

Outgoing server encrypted connection: SSL/TLS

Click OK when finished.

Click OK

If you’ve entered everything correctly (username, password, urls and ports), both testing tasks will be completed successfully.

When everything is confirmed, you can click “Close”.

HURRAY! YOU ARE DONE, EVERYTHING IS SET UP!

You are now getting the “You’re all set!” message.

You are done, everything works and your e-mails will now start syncronizing with your Microsoft Outlook.

Syncronized with Webmail

When you connect to GMEngine with the IMAP protocol, your Outlook is always synchronized with our Webmail.

Our Webmail is a browser based multilingual client with an application-like user interface.

You do get the same functionality as if you use Outlook, and by co-working between the two clients, you can work efficiently on both Computer and Online.
