Etisalat UAE IMAP, POP3 and SMTP Email Settings ( 2020 Updated ) Today I faced a challenge with finding the Etisalat UAE email settings. After hours of trial and error, I managed to validate the following settings. If you have a different setting that works fine please share it in the comments section for the fellow readers. The following settings can be used to set up your Etisalat email account on Outlook, Thunderbird, Android Mail, Apple Mail, or any other email client that supports IMAP or POP3 and SMTP. Etisalat UAE IMAP Settings (Incoming) Encrypted (Secured) IMAP Host/Server name: apmail.emirates.net.ae or exmail.emirates.net.aeIMAP Port: 993IMAP Type of Encryption: SSLIMAP Username: [email protected]IMAP Password: password of the email Unencrypted IMAP Host/Server name: apmail.emirates.net.ae or exmail.emirates.net.aeIMAP Port: 143IMAP Type of Encryption: NoneIMAP Username: [email protected]IMAP Password: password of the email Etisalat UAE POP3 Settings (Incoming) POP3 (Post Office Protocol V3) by default removes the fetched email from the server unless specifically instructed not to do it. Therefore, don’t forget to enable this in your client unless you want to keep the server inbox clean. In windows, you can do this by enabling “Leave a copy of message on the server” under Advanced section of the E-mail settings page Leave a copy of message on the server Encrypted (Secured) POP3 Host/Server name: apmail.emirates.net.aePOP3 Port: 995POP3 Type of Encryption: SSLPOP3 Username: [email protected]POP3 Password: password of the email Unencrypted POP3 Host/Server name: apmail.emirates.net.ae or mailv.emirates.net.aePOP3 Port: 110POP3 Type of Encryption: NonePOP3 Username: [email protected] Etisalat UAE SMTP Settings (Outgoing) Encrypted (Secured) SMTP Host/Server name: apmail.emirates.net.ae or exmail.emirates.net.aeSMPT Port: 465SMTP Type of Encryption: SSLSMTP Username: [email protected]SMTP Password: password of the email Note: You should set outgoing server requires authentication to YES Enable outgoing server authentication Unencrypted SMTP Host/Server name: apmail.emirates.net.ae or exmail.emirates.net.aeSMPT Port: 25SMTP Type of Encryption: NoneSMTP Username: [email protected]SMTP Password: password of the email Note: You should set Outgoing server requires authentication to YES Bonus Settings The following setting is some optional settings I use based on my experience.

Outgoing mails just do not go. Keep sitting in the outbox. Incoming mails dont give much trouble.. a bit of delay. My webhost is Etisalat. Can anyone give me some tips or wisdom on this?ReplyDeleteRepliesKanchana RandikaDecember 29, 2020 at 4:39 AMPlease make sure you are using the correct SMTP settings. If you have a slower internet it could also be caused by server timeout. Try to increase the server timeout and see if it helps as described in my article.DeleteRepliesReplyReplyAdd commentLoad more... You are welcome to share your ideas with us in the comments!
