Server Settings

POP3 Server:     mail.simplehost.co.nz     port: 110

SMTP Server:     mail.simplehost.co.nz     port: 25

  • Alternatively you may use the SMTP submission port of 587

Note - If you use Xtra or Orcon as your ISP, or an ISP that filters port 25 you will need to send outgoing email using your ISPs mailserver we explain this in Sending email from an ISP that blocks port 25

If you are creating this Email Account for a domain hosted with Simplehost - you must have created a mailbox first, if you need help doing this please see our information on Creating another E-Mail address
