Support DatabaseCategory: EmailWhat’s the difference between using and imap/
Blackbudget Staff asked 2 months ago

When selecting what credentials to use within your mail client, you have a choice between using either: or imap/

There is no difference between using either of those options.

Primarily, we allow you to use so that you have a more customised experience and its easier to remember.

If you use mail.yourdomain it is likely you’ll get a “mail certificate name mismatch” / “cannot verify server identity” error. It’s nothing to worry about, this is because you are using so you can trust the certificate with the knowledge that the connection will remain encrypted. Once the certificate is trusted you should not receive any further warnings, unless the certificate changes.
