How to Locate Your Email Settings in Webmail and cPanel

You are here:

An email client is a software used to access and manage an individual’s email. It is more formally known as a mail user agent (MUA) or email reader. An online application that can handle, compose messages, and perform its functions can act as an email client. Thunderbird, Horde, Apple Mail, Outlook, and more are some examples of an email client. We can configure and manage our email accounts using these email clients. 

The email configurations are an area where we can configure the incoming and outgoing server details, port numbers, email address, password, and more. If we want to configure an email client, then you need the details mentioned above. One can learn about the secure port number for the incoming and outgoing connection. Additionally, other details like outgoing and incoming server details, email address, password, and more will be shown in the email configurations.
