Mail Host


In the Mail Host field, enter the name of the POP or IMAP server that receives and stores your email. Example:

The host that you specify in this field is used for incoming mail. By default, the Vocera Voice Server also uses it for outgoing mail unless you specify otherwise in the SMTP Host field. See Outgoing Mail Settings.
