How to set up Aruba Webmail

We have bought a domain in Aruba.it and we want to configure Aruba Webmail to access it from anywhere?

Are we a little reluctant to use a web client and want to access the mailbox from the PC or mobile phone, thanks to a native client and without opening the browser?

Then this is the right article. In the following, we will show you how to configure Aruba Webmail in email clients by manually entering the parameters - as some of them are not able to acquire them automatically.

Preamble: at some point we will have to choose whether to use the POP3 or IMAP protocol. Although both allow you to send and receive emails, the difference is in the way you manage the messages. Without going into details we can say that:

  • the POP3 protocol does not offer the possibility of synchronization messages between multiple devices and delete messages from server once downloaded; it is the most suitable for accesses from a single client;
  • the IMAP protocol offers the ability to sync email messages between multiple devices and keeps a copy of messages on the server once downloaded; it is especially good for boxes that are managed by several clients.

Given current habits, we strongly recommend that you configure Aruba Webmail using the IMAP protocol. The choice is still yours.

With that said, let's see how to do it!

NOTE: : This guide works for both custom email addresses with a purchased domain (for example [email protected]) as for @aruba.it email addresses.

Configure Aruba Webmail

PC (mail client)

Setting up Aruba Webmail on a PC is easy - you just need an email client and the proper settings! The procedure is compatible with practically all email clients, such as Windows 10 "Mail", Outlook, Mozilla Thunderbird, Opera Mail, Airmail and many others.

To configure Aruba Webmail, go to the add new account of our client and configure it as follows:

POP3 PROTOCOL

  • Inbox server (POP): pop3s.aruba.it | port: 995 | SSL: yes;
  • outgoing mail server (SMTP): smtps.aruba.it | port: 465 | SSL: yes | authentication: yes;
  • Display Name: the name we want to display who receives a message;
  • Username (or account name): the Aruba domain web mailbox address ([email protected]);
  • Password: The access password chosen when creating the mailbox.

IMAP PROTOCOL

The IMAP mailbox service must first be activated from your Aruba management software using this guide. Once all this is done, we can configure our mail client by selecting IMAP as the incoming mail protocol and using the same parameters as for POP3.

Android

The easiest way to configure Aruba Webmail on Android is by downloading the dedicated application from the Play Store; To do this, you will only have to enter your username and password. However, the reviews leave a little to be desired.

Download Aruba Mail (Google Play Store)

Alternatively we can use any other mail client for Android, for example Outlook, the System Mail application or even Gmail we can do it safely.

Just start the account addition procedure from our favorite email client. Some mail applications are capable of importing the parameters themselves without having to enter them manually. If not, we can use the the same parameters as for PC clients, both POP and IMAP (recommended), taking care to choose manual configuration of the parameters when adding the new account.

iPhone / iOS

The easiest way to set up Aruba Webmail on iPhone and iOS is to download the dedicated app from iTunes, launch it, and, when prompted, enter your username and password. Again, the reviews are not exactly good.

Download Aruba Mail (iTunes)

As an alternative we can use any other email client for iPhone and iOS, even the default mail client. Just start the account addition procedure from our favorite email client; If we use Mail, let's first disconnect from the Internet - otherwise the application will look for the parameters on its own and, as it cannot detect them correctly, it will not allow us to advance.

We can use the the same parameters as PC clients, both POP and IMAP (recommended).

Windows Phone / 10 Mobile

The easiest way to set up Aruba Webmail on Windows Phone or Windows 10 Mobile is to download the dedicated app from the Windows Store, launch it, and when prompted, enter your username and password. Like the two mobile apps above, the reviews of this app leave something to be desired.

Download Aruba Mail (Windows Store)

Alternatively we can use any other email client, even the default Windows Phone (Email) or Windows 10 Mobile (Email). Just start the procedure to add accountstaking care to choose the manual setting of the parameters, and we can use the the same parameters as for PC clients, both POP and IMAP (recommended).
