Determine Your Mail Server Address
You will use the mail server address for both incoming mail server and outgoing mail server settings when adding your email account to mobile devices or third party desktop applications.
So, first let's determine your mail server address.
Step 1: Open a web browser on your computer and go to webmail.yourdomain.com
Replace yourdomain.com with your actual domain name.
For example, if your email address is firstname.lastname@example.org, you would type in webmail.xyzhealth.com.
Do not use a search bar or include http:// or https:// when entering the address into the browser's url bar.
Step 2: You will automatically be redirected to your mail server.
Your mail server address is the first portion of the URL, right before /Login.aspx.
