Step 2a: Configure IMAP

First we’ll setup the Incoming Server information. If you’ve configured your email in cPanel then you can either select POP3 or IMAP for the connection Type . In this case, we’ve selected IMAP and Port is set to 143 .

User Name should be your username, generally with the domain included. For example, test-user@thebestfakedomainnameintheworld.com instead of just test-user .
