Configuring Your Email Client for Use With IMail

Outlook® Express | Outlook® 2000

NOTICE: Beginning March 6th, 2004 Timberland Hosting will require you to use SMTP Authentication if you are using Timberland Hosting's mail server for outgoing mail.  Read below for instructions on how to configure.

The instructions on these pages show you how to set up your Email client to open your IMail.  IMail is the email system we set you up for when you sign up with Timberland.

If you open your mail by going to http://mail.yourdomain.com:8383, you do not need to make any changes. You also do not need to make any changes to your scripts. 

If, however, you open your mail by using Outlook®, Outlook® Express, or Eudora® you need to follow our instructions. These are the ONLY email clients we support. If you wish to use another Email Client, you'll have to figure out how to configure them.

Our tech support personnel are prepared to help you during with this process. Just send an e-mail to support@timberlandhosting.com and specify your request.

Remember, customers that are using internet providers such as AT&T, Mindspring, UUnet, Sprint, Qwest, and Prodigy must use their provider's outgoing mail server. There may be other ISP's that require users to use their local SMTP servers as well. Please contact them for more information.

If you are not using one of these email clients, you may click on these links to get the latest versions:

Download Outlook® Express 5.0  (this requires IE 5.0 or higher)

Download Outlook® 2000

Download Eudora® 5.1

Of course, we will support any upgrades to these versions, but not any older versions.
