Good day,

To recover you mails will depend whether the mails were set up to POP or IMAP

POP (Post Office Protocol) simply downloads email to your computer, and usually deletes the email from the remote server.
The problems arise when you have more than one device where you would want to read your mail (desktop, laptop, tablet or phone) and it has downloaded to ONE device.

IMAP (Internet Message access protocol) allows users to store their email on remote servers. This allows the user to synchronize their email among multiple devices.


Please follow the link below for email configuration settings.


DSL Client using their email address.
DSL Client using another email address Settings as per mail provider
Hosting client not using Afrihost DSL but needing SMTP. *
Hosting client not using Afrihost DSL and using their own ISP for SMTP.

Settings Provided by your ISP **
