What email server settings should I use for the WordPress plugin?

  • Answered
Hi I'm trying to setup a bounce email options for a newsletter wordpress plugin. It asking for the The host remote server. E.g.: imap.example.com

I have email set up and trying everything on the config information on the cpanel however I keep getting errors.

Right now I had it set as my Secure SSL/TLS Settings Incoming Server: Information with port 993 and the message I'm getting is [CLOSED] IMAP connection broken (server response).

What should I have in the The host remote server.??

Hello KimberH, Sorry for the problem with determining the host server for your bounce email options. Your remote settings will be based on your VPS. You should be able to put in vps12235.inmotionhosting.com for the remote server. Port 993 is correct for the incoming server. If you need outgoing server settings, it will be port 465 (using SSL). Check out How to find email settings for more information if needed. I hope this helps to answer your question, please let us know if you require any further assistance. Kindest regards, Arnel C.
