Email Set up info
Please note that we only provide email services - not the software or devices.

Email Software
We do not provide email software for your computer or laptop. You must go to the software vendor to set up your email software. For example, Outlook is developed and sold by Microsoft, so Microsoft is who you would go to for help with Outlook.

Email Devices
We do not provide email devices, like smart phones, tablets, or any devices that might be set up to access your email. For example, iPhones are Apple products, so Apple or their dealers is who you would go to for help with the products they manufacture.

That being said, we have several basic instructions here that we hope may help get you started, but for the BEST help, please directly contact the vendor or creator of the software you are using - or the company that sold you the software (or the phone) you are trying to hook up. We will be happy to recommend other companies that specialize in this regard.
