Setting up your email using ClusterCS (Android&Thunderbird)

If you want one (or more) email address on your domain, ClusterCS offers an easy way to setup it.

Start by navigating to the Email tab of your domain:

 

On the Add Email form, you have to set up an email address and a password. The extra options include setting a fixed Inbox size for the email address.

You can also set aliases (In the case of the picture below any mail sent to aliasexample[at]example[dot]com will be sent to this inbox - example[at]example[dot]com) and forwards (In this case all mails sent to example[at]example[dot]com will be also sent to example[at]clustercs[dot]com. Remember to press Enter after entering each alias/forward email in order to save it.

 

Now, you probably want to set an e-mail client for your new e-mail address. The ones we recommend are Thunderbird (For PCs) and the default GMail app (For Android).

For Thunderbird, the settings should be as follows (Replace example.com with your own domain):

 

As for Android, go into the GMail App and add a new account:

 

Here you have two choices: IMAP downloads the mails on your phone, but also keeps them on the server, while POP3 deletes the e-mails from the server and you can access them only from your phone. Choose the one that you want:

 

For the Incoming Server Settings, you have to use your e-mail address and your password. As mail server use mail.yourdomain.com

 

When you tap Next, the app will search for Security Certificates (SSL Certs), to select an appropriate protocol (SSL/TLS if you have a certificate installed and STARTTLS if you don't). If it doesn't find any, it will show a warning which you can just ignore, and you click next on this screen, as it has done the settings for you:

 

And for outgoing you should use the same settings as on Incoming:

 

That's it! Now you will receive e-mails on your Android Phone!
