At any time when we want to access our SBCGlobal email in some other email client, we have to manually set up the email account by configuring its mail server settings. These settings are necessary for the proper flow of all email functions. Without these settings being correct, you cannot send or receive any emails, every time you try to do so, it will show you an error. While every time you want to do sbcglobal mail settings for email servers, you also need to understand what these are, how they are helpful and what work they do.
So, in order to send or receive email or any of other email functions, mail servers are there. These are of two types; one is incoming and the other is outgoing. The incoming mail server is governed by two mail protocols, IMAP and POP, either of them is used at a time while setting up an account. Therefore, there are different sbcglobal pop3 settings as well as IMAP settings. The outgoing mail server is managed by SMTP mail protocol.
It is important to bring to your notice that, while choosing an account type of email when setting it up in a third-party client, it is preferred to use IMAP over POP. This is so because IMAP does the two-way server sync and updates your email in real time. Thus, while you are using your email in one device the same changes will reflect in the email account when opened on another device. While using the sbcglobal pop setting for the incoming mail server you won’t be able to access your email account on different devices. Therefore, you should use IMAP.
Following are the SBCGlobal mail server settings:
For POP Account Type
Incoming Mail Server: POP
Outgoing Mail Server
For IMAP Account Type
Incoming Mail Server: IMAP
Outgoing Mail Server: SMTP
