What is WOWway mail?

It is an email service that offers POP3 and IMAP account types on its platform.

  • With the POP3, you can download your emails from the company server on your device (can be downloaded only on a single device allowed).

How to set up the WOWway email account?

Before we can move towards creating a wowway account, you should be familiar with some terms and settings. These are important for your online protection and encryption of the emails you send.

POP (Post Office Postal)

It is the Incoming mail server type that has 110 server ports. It works by contacting the email service and downloading all the messages from there, once they are downloaded the messages are deleted from the server. You can access the emails only from the same computer on which you downloaded the email, which makes it more secure.

SMPT (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol)

It is the Outgoing mail server type that has 25server ports.

IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol)

It allows you to access the emails from any device without any constraints, which makes it less secure. When you “download” any email, it is not removed from the server and is kept there. Also, you are not downloading anything but only reading them on the server.

Now we can move forward as we are aware of the different security settings offered by WOWway email.
