If you are using an email client such as Outlook or Thunderbird rather than the Runbox Webmail, you will need the server settings below to configure it.
We always recommend using a secure connection to our servers as this protects your username, password and email content from being intercepted whilst it is being passed between your computer and our servers.
Secure/Encrypted IMAP, POP and SMTP
Incoming Server (IMAP): secure.runbox.com
IMAP Prefix: INBOX
Incoming Server (POP): secure.runbox.com
Outgoing Server (SMTP): secure.runbox.com
Port: 587 or 465
If you only use a Runbox email address that looks like the one below, then your username is the first part of the email address before the @ symbol.
Email address: firstname.lastname@example.org (also @runbox.no, @runbox.us etc…)
Using your own Domain
If you signed up to your Runbox account using your own domain name then your username will be as follows:
Email address: email@example.com
Username: username%domainyouown.com (note that the @ symbol changes to a % symbol)
Please Note: If you used your account using an @runbox email address before you added your own domain name, then your Runbox username will not have changed and will be the same as for @runbox email addresses (see above).
