Setup Plesk IMAP/POP on an Android Phone


This purpose of following documentation is to provide end users complete configuration steps in setting up an IMAP/POP account on an Android device. A Samsung S7 Edge was used in this setup example.


  • A compatible mailbox setup in our Plesk Linux environment.
  • Android Phone
  • Android Native Email App
  • We do not support single mailboxes running in both modes (IMAP and POP) at the same time.


1. Select the Email application.

2. Enter in the email address and then password for the mailbox.

3. Select IMAP account or POP3 account as you wish.

4. Verify the email server settings if it does not fill it out for you. Ensure that:

  • Email address: Full email address
  • Username: Full email address
  • Password: Email address password

If using IMAP:

  • IMAP server:
  • Security type: TLS port 143

5. Verify outgoing server information.

  • SMTP server:
  • Security Type: TLS port 587
  • Require authentication to send emails: ON
  • Username: Full email address
  • Password: The email address password

And select sign in when completed.

POP Configuration is essentially the same except for the step #4.

Security type: TLS on port 110 for POP
