SSL Setup for Email Connections
Private & Secure Email Connections
NewsGuy accounts include up to 5 free email boxes, and in consideration of our members' privacy and security we support SSL for POP, IMAP and SMTP. This feature allows members to send and receive email via a secure connection. To take advantage of this feature, simply enable the secure connection preference within any SSL compliant email client. Once you've enabled this preference, your email client will automatically change your POP Port to 995, your IMAP Port to 993, while your SMTP Port will remain the same.

Before using Email+SSL, you should download and install NewsGuy's secure certificate. To do this, simply go to https://acc.newsguy.com/newsguy2016.crt, click "Open", select "Install" and follow the "Next" prompt to install the certificate. This only needs to be done once. If you're receiving a certificate message from your mail client while using SSL, please follow the previous instructions to download and install the certificate.

As an example, if you're using Outlook Express for mail, go to the "Tools > Accounts" menu and select the name associated within your NewsGuy mailbox. Click the "Properties" button, select the "Advanced" file tab and checkmark the two option boxes titled "This server requires a secure connection (SSL)". The new port number will automatically update within the POP Port setting field, and you can click the "Apply" button to finalize your settings changes. Please contact our support staff if you require further assistance with this feature.
