    I received this email from mail.com about my email account. It says I need to change some settings but I am not really sure how to :rolleyes:. Does anybody know how? Heres the email they sent to me:

    Dear mail.com member,

    We want to inform you about the new mail.com IMAP and POP3 settings.

    Please update your email client configuration as soon as possible as your current settings will no longer work due to a platform upgrade. After these changes have been made it may take 24-48 hours to stop receiving these reminders.

    Please use the following settings to access your account:

    IMAP SETTINGS:
    Username/Email address: Use your full address (test@mail.com)
    Password: Use your current password.
    Account type: IMAP
    Incoming (POP3) Server: imap.mail.com
    Outgoing (SMTP) Server: smtp.mail.com
    Incoming port: 143
    Outgoing port: 587


    POP3 SETTINGS:
    Username/Email address: Use your full email address
    Password: Use your current password.
    Account type: POP3
    Incoming (POP3) Server: pop.mail.com
    Outgoing (SMTP) Server: smtp.mail.com
