E-Mail programs require a variety of information to correctly send and receive e-mail. In addition, some PHP scripts require this information as well.
In this example, substitute your domain for example.com, and your email address for email@example.com
Incoming mail (POP3) server - pop3.example.com
Outgoing mail (SMTP) server - mail.example.com
SMTP Server Authentication - Some e-mail clients will have a checkbox to enable SMTP or Outgoing Server authentication. Make sure this is enabled.
Username - Both your SMTP (outgoing) and POP3 (incoming) usernames are the same as your e-mail address, for example firstname.lastname@example.org
Password - Both your SMTP (outgoing) and POP3 (incoming) passwords are the same - they are the password you chose when setting up your e-mail account. If you forget your password, you can change your e-mail password on the e-mail tab of the account manager.
