  • 2021 email settings update - latest settings and configuration for mail clients etc (1)

    The way your device or mail client is designed may be different than how other programs or devices work, with different names for the same steps.

    Your device or program should have detailed information on how to add and set up mailboxes onto the system, but there are general pieces of information you need to complete the process.

    When selecting the account type, select IMAP.
    Your User Name is your full email address.
    Your Password is your mailbox password.

    If you use IMAP:

    User Name: myemail@mydomain.com
    Password: mypassword123

    Outgoing Mail Server: mta.extendcp.co.uk
    Outgoing Mail Server Port: 587
    Outgoing Mail Server SSL: STARTTLS
    Outgoing Authentication Type: Password

    Note: Your mail server can be set to mail.yourdomain.com or mailXX.extendcp.co.uk (mailXX being the email server number (for example mail44) your domain email is assigned too (this can be found in your control panel or ask us to confirm it for you).

    Incoming IMAP Server: imap.extendcp.co.uk
    Incoming IMAP Server Port: 993
    Incoming IMAP SSL: SSL/TLS
    Incoming IMAP Authentication Type: Password

    If you use POP3:

  • PHP and System updates

    Hello there.

    The systems administrators are in the process of updating all the shared web hosting servers to the latest versions of the Operating Systems patches including a major PHP upgrade, most severs have already been updated, the rest will be completed by the first week of December if all goes to plan?

    Therefore, if your scripts support the latest versions of PHP, most systems such as the latest version of Wordpress for example support PHP 7.4 and 8.0 but plugins and themes may not be? you would have to check with the vendors to confirm.

    The updated servers have the latest PHP versions.

    You may switch to them by adding either line to your .htaccess file:

    AddHandler application/x-httpd-php74 .php
    or
    AddHandler application/x-httpd-php80 .php

    The main Control panel PHP switcher update will happen at the end, once all the servers have been updated.

    I hope this helps?

    Regards.

    Green WebHost support team.
