eMail Settings for any device.
There is one thing to consider when setting up an email account on a device from LFC Hosting, who manages DNS. If you have the domain pointed to LFC Hosting then we managed DNS, in this case, you can use custom domains for the mail servers. If we do not manage the DNS and the name servers are pointed elsewhere you need to use our mail server hostnames. If you have an email to setup on a Mac device, I suggest you use our email to configure method.
POP3 and IMAP are two different protocols (methods) used to access email from our server. POP3 downloads mail to a device to view and IMAP looks to LFC Servers to view the email. Of the two, IMAP is the better option - and the recommended option - when you need to check your emails from multiple devices, such as a work laptop, a home computer, or a tablet, smartphone, or other mobile device. This syncs all your devices together while pop3 does not.
LFC Managed DNS and Non-LFC Managed DNS
Here are the settings for POP3
