Special IMAP settings

If your account was set up before June 1, 2014, you no longer need to include a specific IMAP prefix. The system now identifies this automatically and it is immediately set up correctly.

Special IMAP settings (for accounts set up before June 2014)

To prevent additional mail folders from appearing as subfolders of your inbox in your e-mail program, many e-mail programs let you set the IMAP path prefix to INBOX or INBOX. (depending on the e-mail program, with or without a period at the end). Follow the step-by-step instructions on this topic.

Security

Encryption

We recommend using SSL or TLS to encrypt your IMAP, POP and SMTP connections. This ensures that data exchanged between your e-mail program and your mail server cannot be read by third parties. Your login details and e-mails are therefore protected against unwanted interceptors during transmission.
