OE SETUP [IMAP]

SPECIAL FEATURES:

Our mail system allows you to have multiple domains hosted in a single post office, hence the domain name and post office name will normally not be the same.

Example:
username = john
password = passofjohn
domain name = corkscrew.vg
post office name = corkscrew
IMAP = mail.corkscrew.vg
SMTP = mail.corkscrew.vg

The e-mail address in this case would be john@corkscrew.vg
