Using a Phone, Tablet or Email program

To use an email program such as Outlook or Mac Mail, or a mobile phone or tablet to send and receive your @manx.net email messages we recommend that you use the IMAP protocol.

IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol) is a protocol for email retrieval and storage which provides two-way communication between the mail server and your webmail, or email program.
This means that when you log in to your email via the manx.net website, actions you perform on your phone, tablet or computer will instantly and automatically appear in your webmail. If you move a mail to a folder in Webmail you will see that same folder on your tablet.

IMAP is also a great way to access your emails from multiple devices, many users have a laptop, phone and tablet all with their email configured. With IMAP if you delete mails from your inbox on your computer you don't need to do it again on your phone.

The only thing you need to keep an eye on is your mailbox size limit. As email storage is not unlimited, and with IMAP you leave the mails on the server, you need to make sure you empty your Deleted Items folder from time to time.

Configuring your email

As there are so many different email programs, on both Windows and MAC computers but also the myriad Android and Apple Apps which are available, it is not possible to create a specific configuration guide for every program so below are the settings you will need to get your working with @manx.net mail.
Don't forget, if you ever need any help contact our Service Centre on 624 624 at any time.
