Setting up Posteo in an email client (whether on PC, smartphone or tablet) is different for each client, however, you will always need the following details:
Server name: posteo.de
Password: Your personal password
Important: only encrypted connections (TLS, STARTTLS) can be made with Posteo. Should your email client only support obsolete versions of TLS (TLS 1.0), synchronisation with Posteo is not possible. Update your software in order to connect with Posteo. We recommend using TLS instead of STARTTLS if possible.
Does your app or device no longer offer updates? Posteo support is happy to help you find an app for your device that supports modern encryption standards.
The outgoing mail server (SMTP) requires authentication.
In case your email client asks: The password will be checked “normal” or “plain”. The password can also be transmitted unencrypted, because it is requested over a connection that is already encrypted.
The port settings depend upon the type of encryption:
with SSL/TLS encryption using port 465, or
With STARTTLS using port 587
with SSL/TLS encryption using port 993, or
With STARTTLS using port 143
with SSL/TLS encryption using port 995, or
With STARTTLS using port 110
