SIMPLE STEPS FOR BIGPOND OUTGOING MAIL SETTINGS

Bigpond Outgoing Mail Settings

Are you looking to set up a Bigpond account with other email service providers? Then you must have the mail server settings ready. We got you both Bigpond incoming mail settings and Bigpond Outgoing Mail Settings, so you don't have to search for everything.

Before you set up Bigpond on other email service providers, you must know that Bigpond has been taken over by Telstra. So if you are using old Bigpond settings, then it may not work. We provide you with the updated mail server settings in this article. And, from now on, we call Bigpond as Telstra, so don't get confused.

To set up Telstra mail manually on different email service providers, you will need email server names and port numbers. We hope you are aware of that.

TELSTRA IMAP SETTINGS

If you are going to use an IMAP account type, the following are the IMAP settings. IMAP synchronizes your email with the mail server, so whatever you do to your mail, like replying, deleting, or marking it as read, will be updated on all your devices.

Incoming Server Settings

  • step 1:Incoming server name: imap.telstra.com
  • step 2:Incoming server port: 993
  • step 3:Encrypted connection type: SSL

Outgoing Server Settings

  • step 1:Outgoing server name: smtp.telstra.com
  • step 2:Outgoing server port: 465 or 587 (Port 465 is recommended)
  • step 3:SMTP authentication: On
  • step 4:Encrypted connection type: SSL/TLS on port 465 (recommended) or STARTTLS on port 587
  • step 5:Username: Your Telstra account email address (for example, ending in ‘@telstra.com')
  • step 6:Password: Your Telstra account email password (Password is case sensitive)

After entering all the above Bigpond Outgoing Mail settings, ensure that 'Outgoing server requires authentication' is ticked.

TELSTRA POP SETTINGS

Unlike IMAP, POP does not sync your email with the email server, so whatever you do to your email, like deleting, replying, or marking it as read, will only be applied on that device.

Incoming Server Settings

  • step 1:Incoming server name: pop.telstra.com
  • step 2:Incoming server port: 995
  • step 3:Encrypted connection type: SSL

Outgoing Server Settings

  • Step 1:Outgoing server name: smtp.telstra.com
  • Step 2:Outgoing server port: 465 or 587 (Port 465 is recommended)
  • Step 3:Authentication: Yes
  • Step 4:Encrypted connection type: SSL/TLS on port 465 (recommended) or STARTTLS on port 587
  • Step 5:Username: Telstra email address (for example, ending in ‘@telstra.com')
  • Step 6:Password: Telstra email account password (Password is case sensitive)

Once you have entered the POP settings, check if you have ticked 'Outgoing server requires authentication.'
