Hello Experts,

I am using OpenPOP3 API to access my GMAIL. I can able to READ and SEND emails by using below details:

Pop Server Name: pop.gmail.com
Pop Port Number: 995

Smtp Server Name: smtp.gmail.com
Smtp Port Number: 587

My client is using ZIMBRA email account and I want to access ZIMBRA messages now. So can anyone please provide me Pop & Smtp server details like above to access them.

Firstly I hope its possible to use ZIMBRA emails by C# code.

Thanks !

as far as i know, zimbra is a piece of software and not a managed service.

the hostname or ip will be the ip of the machine that hosts the zimbra.

zimbra implements all the usual email protocols including smtp, pop and imap both over SSL and plain TCP. they should work from anything that implements the same protocol including c# libraries. the port numbers should be the default ones unless your client changed them.

you don't have an exact hostname because you're asking about a private server

the ports in your first link ARE the default ones so you just don't need to specify them in your code or mail client.

if you think you did provide an answer to your own question, you should accept your own answer rather than deleting the thread.

if you expect to send email using a login/password, using the submission (587 w/o TLS) port is better than using smtp 25 or smtps 465, but they all should work
