The exact settings for your mail account will be available via ClientZone, you can access this by browsing:

ClientZone > Hosting >  Your hosting package > Manage Email > settings. Alternatively, you can login to ClientZone and replace yourdomain with your domain name on the link https://clientzone.afrihost.com/en/#/en/my-hosting/email-list/yourdomain

The settings should look something like this:

Username: name@yourdomain.co.za
Password:The accounts password
Incoming Server: mail.domainname.tld
IMAP: Port 143
POP3: Port 110
Outgoing Server: mail.domainname.tld
SMTP: Port 25/587
Webmail: webmail.domainname.tld / mail.domainname.tld/webmail

Mail settings below are when SSL is enabled for mails.

Username: name@yourdomain.co.za
Password:The accounts password
Incoming Server: servername.co.za
IMAP: Port 993
POP3: Port 995
Outgoing Server: servername.co.za
SMTP: Port 465
Webmail: webmail.domainname.tld / mail.domainname.tld/webmail

When accessing mails using webmail on your browser the site with rediect automaticall to https (SSL) for when SSL is enabled and disabled.
