    We recommend IMAP4 if you use multiple devices, otherwise POP3 will work for you.

    Outgoing server requires authentication
    Use the same username and password for sending emails
    Require SSL for incoming emails
    Require SSL for outgoing emails

You should now be able to select your mailbox from your list of accounts. We recommend you send a test email to and from your iiNet email address to confirm it is working. If your email is not working, please call us on 13 22 58 for a hand.
