(This article applies only to those accounts migrated to our new platform from 2018 onwards).
For scale and redundancy reasons we operate each service from its own hostname. So we always recommend using the most relevent hostname for incoming and outgoing servers in mail clients. These are as follows:
- IMAP: imap.stackmail.com (or imap.domain)
- POP: pop3.stackmail.com (or pop3.domain)
- SMTP: smtp.stackmail.com (or smtp.domain)
However, for compatibility reasons and to help ease migrations, we automatically setup mail.domain for each of your packages.
Any clients already using these hostnames can continue to do so when the account is moved to us, and any new accounts added will have the same functionality.
