  3. Enter your server information.

    For Hostroman, non SSL settings for the incoming mail server will be mail.yourdomain.com.

    For SSL settings, you’ll need to look at the settings in your cpanel email configuration area that we accessed previously.

    Your user name is actually you complete email address, such as name@yourdomain.com.

  4. You’ll set up the outgoing mail server, which is just the same as the incoming for non SSL Hostgator settings. And again the user name is your email address.
