Email is the backbone of any business and managing it well has become mission critical for the company.

With desktop clients, access your business email using desktop installed clients like Outlook and Thunderbird or on mobile devices such as Apple iPhone, Android and tablets like the Apple iPad.

Features such as POP3 (Post Office Protocol), SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol) and IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol) on a secured connection via SSL encryption can be used to access your emails.

  • SMTP is used by the email server to send your message to the mailbox of your recipient’s email server.
  • IMAP / POP3 is used by the email client to fetch your emails using either the IMAP or POP3 and put it in your inbox.

Device synchronization is also important. You take an action on one device and it is synchronized across all for e.g. you add a calendar event on PC, you can also see it and even edit it on mobile.

Email configuartion

Most email clients can be configured to fetch mails using either POP3 or IMAP. The configuration is a series of steps which involves keying in your email servers address, port number and your account’s user name and password.

The POP3 and IMAP setting for Rediffmail Enterprise are as follows:
