Email Setup & Spam Control

Email Setup

While there are small variations in the setup process of each email client, this general guide should help you set up most of them. Questions? We’re always happy to help.

Adjusting the Server Settings

When you set up an email on your computer or cell phone, the setup will ask whether it’s a POP, IMAP, or EXCHANGE account. In most cases, you’ll want to select IMAP.

Next, you’ll be prompted to enter an email address (johndoe@example.com), username (johndoe) and password. After you fill out these fields, the setup will request technical server settings. Fill in those fields with the following information:

Incoming Server Settings

  • Hostname: mail.bardstowncable.net
  • Incoming Server Port Number:
    • For IMAP: 143
    • FOR POP: 110

Note: POP is being replaced by IMAP and should only be used if this email will only be setup on a single device.

Outgoing Server Settings

  • Mobile Devices
    • Hostname: smtp.bardstowncable.net
    • Port number: 587
    • Enable password authentication
  • Desktops
    • Hostname: smtp.bardstowncable.net
    • Port number: 25

In every instance when our filters detect possible SPAM, we’ll send you a report with options to deliver, whitelist, or delete the emails.
