You must know, in fact, that the PEC boxes, on the user side, work in an almost identical way to traditional email boxes.

The only care you need to have – as always – is to fill in the program fields correctly.

How do you say? Would you like to use the Aruba PEC also on smartphones and tablets? No problem. This can also be done in an externally simple way, much more than you might think. For all the details of the case, please continue reading this guide of mine dedicated to how to configure Aruba PEC . It will take you a few minutes to complete the entire job, you have my word.

Preliminary information

Before getting to the heart of the tutorial and discovering how to configure Aruba PEC , you need to find the “coordinates” of the Aruba servers , which are essential for configuring the service in any e-mail client.

The coordinates in question can refer to the IMAP or POP3 server of the service, depending on the communication protocol you prefer to use. The IMAP protocol , which is the one I recommend you use, is more modern and allows the use of the same account on multiple devices at the same time while keeping messages synchronized (both incoming and outgoing) on ​​all workstations.

The POP3 protocol , on the other hand, is more dated and requires the use of the e-mail service on a single device, in fact it deletes messages from remote servers as soon as they are downloaded to the PC (except for the activation of special backup functions ). I advise against it.

Having made this necessary distinction, below you will find the information that you must enter in your email client to set up the use of the PEC of Aruba correctly.

IMAP

  • Incoming mail server (IMAP): imaps.pec.aruba.it
  • Port: 993
  • Requires SSL: yes
  • Outgoing mail server (SMTP): smtps.pec.aruba.it
  • Port: 465
  • Requires SSL: yes
  • Requires authentication: yes
  • Full Name or Display Name: Your name
  • Account Name or Username: your Aruba certified email address (e.g. name@pec.it)
  • Email address: your Aruba certified email address (e.g. name@pec.it)
  • Password: password chosen when registering for the Aruba PEC service

POP3

  • Incoming mail server (POP3): pop3s.pec.aruba.it
  • Port: 995
  • Requires SSL: yes
  • Outgoing mail server (SMTP): smtps.pec.aruba.it
  • Port: 465
  • Requires SSL: yes
  • Requires authentication: yes
  • Full Name or Display Name: Your name
  • Account Name or Username: your Aruba certified email address (e.g. name@pec.it)
  • Email address: your Aruba certified email address (e.g. name@pec.it)
  • Password: password chosen when registering for the Aruba PEC service

If you use the PEC of Aruba on a custom domain , you must use the same IMAP and POP3 coordinates that I have just indicated, but inserting the PEC address with the custom domain as the account name (eg mailboxname@pec.domainname.xx ).

For further details, you can consult the specific web page for configuring the PEC account on the mail client on the Aruba website.
