Jimdo provides email accounts through its partner, Rackspace. You can access your Jimdo email accounts by setting up an email client or through Rackspace's webmail service.
Sending an email (or multiple messages with identical content) to more than 250 recipients is considered spam, and our email provider Rackspace blocks this on their servers. To send an email to 250 or more recipients, use our Newsletter feature.
Setting up an Email Client
Setting up an email client is the best way to access your Jimdo email accounts. Rackspace provides explicit tutorials for setting up a Desktop Email Client (e.g. Apple Mail and Outlook Express) or configuring a Mobile device (e.g. iPhone, iPad, Android, etc.).
We're here for you if you have any trouble setting up your email client. Just get in touch with our Support Team and we'll be happy to help you.
Settings for your Email Client
It's best to follow Rackspace's tutorials above, but if you can't find your specific email client, you can use these settings to send and receive email through your email program over a secure connection (SSL). It makes sense to utilize this if many people are using the same network (e.g. schools, universities, offices) or if you sometimes use open or public internet connections (e.g. coffee shops, libraries).
In most cases, it's preferable to use IMAP when setting up your email client. With IMAP, a copy of each email you receive is saved on Rackspace's servers so that you can access it even if you delete it from your computer. With POP, the server deletes its copies of your emails as soon as you download them to your computer, making it impossible to recover lost emails through Rackspace.

If you can't use a secure connection (e.g. because of a firewall), you can use the following settings to send and receive emails over an unencrypted channel:
