Can I access my Suddenlink email using an email client?

As of May 4, 2021, Suddenlink no longer offers the ability for new and existing Internet customers to create new Suddenlink email accounts.

You can access your Suddenlink email using a third-party email client/app, such as Gmail, Outlook.com, Yahoo! Mail, and more using the server settings below.

Before you set up, know that choosing either POP or IMAP can impact the way you access and manage your email.

IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol) is a popular protocol that keeps your email on the server and always synchronized across your devices.

For example, if you delete, send or mark a message as unread on one device, it is reflected on all your devices. If you are or planning to access your Suddenlink email on multiple devices (computer, mobile devices, etc.) it is recommended you use IMAP.

POP (Post Office Protocol) downloads your email from the server (does not leave a copy) onto your device. Therefore, actions on one device are not reflected on other devices.

Using the same example, if you delete, send or mark a message as unread on one device, the changes will not be reflected on other devices.

Server Settings

Use the following server settings to set up most third-party email clients or applications to send or receive Suddenlink email.

IMAP (Inbound)

Incoming mail server: imap.suddenlink.net
Incoming mail port (SSL): 993 (Secure Connection. Recommended if your mail client supports)
Incoming mail port: 143 (Not recommended. Legacy mail clients only)

POP (Inbound)

Incoming mail server: pop.suddenlink.net
Incoming mail port (SSL): 995 (Secure Connection. Recommended if your mail client supports)
Incoming mail port: 110 (Not recommended. Legacy mail clients only)

SMTP (Outbound)

Outgoing mail server: smtp.suddenlink.net
Outgoing mail port (SSL): 465 (Secure Connection. Recommended if your mail client supports)
Outgoing mail port: Port: 587 (Not recommended. Legacy mail clients only)

  • Check My SMTP server requires authentication

Username and Password (if needed)

User Name: Your full email address, including the @domain.net at the end (i.e. @suddenlink.net)
Password: The password for your particular email address

  • Outgoing server verification/authentication must be enabled and on. If your email client has the option or checkbox that says My outgoing server requires authentication this will need to be checked along with use same settings as my incoming mail server.
