To configure an e-mail client for IMAP protocol, you will need the following information:

Server Type: IMAP
Incoming Server: mail.unwiredwest.com
Outgoing Server: mail.unwiredwest.com

User Name or Account Name: Your FULL E-MAIL ADDRESS
Password: Your e-mail password

NOTE: If your email address is associated with your own domain, then substitute your server names for mail.unwiredwest.com. For example, if your domain name is SHINYWHEELS.COM, then your incoming and outgoing mail server will be MAIL.SHINYWHEELS.COM.

Note: The outgoing server needs to be authenticated with user name and password.
