What is my mail server for Cloud Sites?

Note: This documentation refers to a feature that is no longer available for Cloud Sites. This article is here for the purpose of legacy support only. We no longer offer free email service with Cloud Sites, but you can connect to a mail service from your website using PHPMail or another code library. You'll need a mail server you can connect to - you can use our Rackspace Email service, Mailgun, or another third-party service that allows SMTP connections.

There are several mail servers that are available to you. Here are some of the mail servers that are available:

Server TypeServer NamePort
POP3 & IMAPmail.(domain.com)110 (POP3) & 143 (IMAP)
POP3 & IMAPmail.emailsrvr.com110 (POP3) & 143 (IMAP)
SMTPsmtp.emailsrvr.com25, 587, 8025, and 2525
SMTPmail.emailsrvr.com25, 587, 8025, and 2525
SMTPmail.(domain.com)25, 587, 8025, and 2525
POP3 with SSLsecure.emailsrvr.com995
IMAP with SSLsecure.emailsrvr.com993
SMTP with SSLsecure.emailsrvr.com25, 465, 587, 8025, and 2525

Note: Though port 25 is listed for SMTP service, most ISP's block it by default due to exploitation of the service, so it may not work for all of our customers.

If you have any questions, please contact support.
