Incoming mail server:

  • POP3 server - mail.inbox.lv
  • IMAP server - mail.inbox.lv 

Outgoing mail server (SMTP server):

  • mail.inbox.lv

Port:

  • Port of POP3s server: 995 (using SSL encryption) More about POP3s
  • Port of IMAPs server: 993 (using SSL encryption)
  • Port of SMTPs server with TLS support: 587 or 25. More about TLS

    *These ports are closed to use for security reasons: POP3 port 110. More
