POP, IMAP and SMTP server hostnames and ports

Please note: When sending mail from a third-party mail client, your copy of the message will be saved in your Sent folder as encrypted, even if the message is sent as non-encrypted. By default, any mail sent via SMTP from a third-party mail program will be sent as non-encrypted, unless the recipient is a Hushmail customer or has previously set a passphrase for receiving encrypted email.
POP & IMAP are available only to Hushmail Premium with Desktop Access. All Hushmail Business accounts come with POP & IMAP included.

POP & IMAP server hostnames and ports

POP & IMAP servers are used to retrieve your email from Hushmail. If your email client asks you to choose between POP or IMAP, we recommend choosing IMAP. You may also be prompted to enter in a username and password. Your username is your full Hushmail email address, and the password is your Hushmail passphrase.
