Rackspace email integration

Rackspace email integration allows you to set up Rackspace email on your email clients such as Outlook, Thunderbird, Windows, and iOS. Moreover, enabling IMAP in Rackspace mail allows you to use IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol) to sync your Rackspace Mail on aNinja app.

Overview of IMAP Protocol

IMAP is a protocol that allows you to download email messages from your Rackspace Mail server. It also allows you to access them with desktop email clients like Outlook/ Mac Mail and/or mobile email clients. So, you can configure Rackspace Mail on any standard IMAP email client using the IMAP and SMTP Server Settings.

Moreover, IMAP allows a two-way synchronization between the email clients and your Rackspace email account. It means that you can access the same account from multiple email clients.

Rackspace Mail IMAP Settings 

IMAP lets you configure your email client to receive incoming mail from your Rackspace email account. It allows two-way syncing, which is great if you’ll be checking email from multiple devices.

Here are the IMAP settings at Rackspace:

  • Your Name: Your Name or Business Name
  • Login Name: Your Mailbox Email Address
  • Password: Your Mailbox Password
  • Account Type: IMAP
  • Incoming Mail Server: secure.emailsrvr.com
  • Incoming Mail Server (IMAP) TCP Port: 993 (SSL)
Rackspace Mail SMTP Settings

Whereas IMAP helps you receive incoming mail, SMTP is a protocol that handles sending emails via Rackspace. You can use it to configure your email client so that you’re able to send emails right through that client.

Here are the SMTP settings at Rackspace:

  • Your Name: Your Name or Business Name
  • Login Name: Your Mailbox Email Address
  • Password: Your Mailbox Password
  • Account Type: IMAP
  • Outgoing Mail Server: secure.emailsrvr.com
  • Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP) TCP Port: 465 (SSL)
