3rd Party E-mail Clients

You can also use most third-party e-mail clients to send and receive mail. We've provided step-by-step instructions for a few common clients. For other e-mail clients, use the general information below, and refer to your e-mail client's documentation for information on how to enter this data.

General Settings

The exact steps to set up your email client differ based on the client. In general you will need the following information. This assumes that you've created a Bravenet email address in the email tab of your account already.
