Select POP as the type of email account you are connecting.

The information required to complete the POP email setup is located on the Email Accounts screen for the site associated with that address.

Connection info for WPMU DEV email accounts

Enter the following information into the indicated fields:

  • Servers – The same server, or host, is used for both incoming and outgoing email, so enter mailu.wpmudev.host into both server fields.
  • Incoming port – The incoming port for all WPMU DEV email accounts is 995. So, enter that number into the incoming mail port field.
  • Outgoing port – The outgoing port for all WPMU DEV email accounts is 587. So, enter that number into the outgoing mail port field.
  • Encryption method – TLS is enabled for all WPMU DEV hosted email accounts, but there are two TLS options available in Outlook. It is important to select the STARTTLS option.

Mac User?

If you are configuring this in the Outlook app on an Apple device and don’t see the STARTTLS option for the Outgoing mail > Encryption method as noted above, try setting it to SSL and Port 465. Then, under More Options at the last step (as seen in the image below), switch the Authentication from Incoming Server Info to Username/Password.

Outlook pop configuration screen

When ready, click the Next button. On the next screen, Outlook will request the email account password. This is the password you chose or the strong password we provided when the email address was created. Enter the email address password into the field provided by Outlook and click Connect.
