Email Programs and Wireless Devices

Setting up an Email Program with your OPP-run Email

You can check your email from your computer with more features than the webmail offers with applications like Thunderbird, Outlook, Eudora, Entourage and Mac Mail. They can only be used on a computer that you have installed the program on. Email programs function like a gateway to download and read your email on your personal computer, but if you're away from home, you'll still be able to use webmail to check your email from other computers.

Remember that because these are third party programs, our customer support can't cover them.

Please visit this website for settings and instructions regarding your specific email application. (Also note: OPP generally recommends IMAP as the best set up option, but please take a minute to Google IMAP vs POP3, and think about your choice, if you're not sure which version is right for you.):

Your email Username is *YOUR FULL OPP EMAIL ADDRESS*
Your email Password is *YOUR OPP CONTROL PANEL PASSWORD* (unless you have set it to something different in your OPP Control Panel)

If you need to reset your password, you can do so here.

If you choose to set up an email application, please understand that you are choosing to run your email through third party software, and we CANNOT answer tech support questions regarding the specifics of the software you have chosen to use. If you need help please contact tech support for the email program you are using.

If you have a question about our email settings, or something else related to your account with us and your email, please, of course, feel free to contact us with questions. :)

Email Settings, Straight Up.
