Preliminary information

Before we get to the heart of the tutorial, there is some preliminary information that it is my duty to provide you. Let’s start from a fixed point: most e-mail clients are able to automatically acquire the configuration parameters necessary to make Libero Mail work.

If this does not happen, it is still possible to configure Libero mail manually , by entering the necessary data to use the IMAP and POP3 protocols , which allow you to send and receive mail without opening the browser.

Between the two, I recommend that you use the IMAP protocol, which is more modern and is configured for use on multiple devices. In fact, it keeps track of the changes made on any computer, smartphone or tablet and automatically synchronizes them on all devices, keeping a copy of the messages always on the Libero Mail remote server. The POP3 protocol, unlike IMAP, is older and has been designed for use on a single device. It does not synchronize emails across multiple devices and deletes messages from the Libero Mail remote server once they are downloaded to your computer or portable device.

To use one of the two protocols, you must enter the relevant configuration parameters in the settings of your e-mail client . You can find them below, as well as on the official website of the service .

IMAP protocol

  • Incoming mail server (IMAP): imapmail.libero.it, Port: 993, Requires SSL: yes
  • Outgoing mail server (SMTP): smtp.libero.it, Port: 465, Requires SSL: yes, Requires authentication: yes
  • Full name or display name: [your name]
  • Account name or Username: Libero mailing address (e.g. name@libero.it)
  • E-mail address: Libero mailing address (e.g. name@libero.it)
  • Password: Libero Mail password chosen during registration

POP3 protocol

  • Incoming mail server (POP): popmail.libero.it, Port: 995, Requires SSL: yes
  • Outgoing mail server (SMTP): smtp.libero.it, Port: 465, Requires SSL: yes, Requires authentication: yes
  • Full name or display name: [your name]
  • Account name or Username: Libero mailing address (e.g. name@libero.it)
  • E-mail address: Libero mailing address (e.g. name@libero.it)
  • Password: Libero Mail password chosen during registration

Please also note that on your Libero account you have activated two-step verification , instead of your account password, in the client you must use the specific password for the app generated through this page . This applies to all email clients for computers, smartphones and tablets.

If you don’t want to use an email client, you can still access Libero Mail simply by using your browser . To do this, all you have to do is start the browser, go to the Libero Mail home page , press the Enter button , type your email address in the Enter your email field , press the Next button , enter the account password in the Enter field your password and press the Next button again .
