Incoming and Outgoing mail server information is used to configure email clients like Outlook, Thunderbird, Outlook Express, etc. to view and send your email. There are some advantages to using an email client versus webmail, like being able to create a personal address book and having a more user friendly and functional interface.
Please note: When configuring a client, please make sure that you select IMAP for the mail server types, not POP.
