How do I manage my email with an email client?

There are several ways of checking your EMail; in this FAQ Entry we're going to cover checking it via an EMail Client. Our mail services go through Google Apps, simply put, it's GMail with our domain name. These instructions have been formatted for use in Thunderbird.

There are several settings that your mail client will ask for, they are as follows:
User Name - This will be your username WITH the @agardenersforum.com such as: example@agardenersforum.com
Pass Word - The password you have set via the http://www.AGardenersForum.com/mail/
Connection Security - All connections must use SSL (the "TLS/SSL required" setting)


Access via POP3
Host Name - pop.gmail.com (or pop.googlemail.com)
Port - 995


Access via IMAP
Host Name - imap.gmail.com (or imap.googlemail.com)
Port - 993


Send Mail
Host Name - smtp.gmail.com (or smtp.googlemail.com)
Port - 465


Please Note - Before you can start accessing your account via IMAP you must first enable it in your account (POP3 should automatically be enabled, but IMAP is the better option as it always keeps the mail on the server versus downloading it to your computer and purging it after it does so as with POP3).


Enabling IMAP or POP3
Login to your account at http://www.AGardenersForum.com/mail/.

Click on the "Cog" to the right side of the page, it's below the text that shows your email address. From here, select "Settings".

Now that you're at the settings page, click on the "Forwarding and POP/IMAP" tab.

To enable "POP3" simply choose "Enable POP for all mail" (or "Enable POP for mail that arrives from now on" if you'd rather not download all previous messages that've arrived to your account).

To enable "IMAP" simply click the "Enable IMAP" option, we recommend turning "Auto-Expunge" on as well so that when you delete a message in your email client that it'll immediately be deleted on the server. We also recommend having the "Do not limit the number of messages in an IMAP folder" which is selected by default.
