How to Set Up Mail Aruba

Nowadays, not having an e-mail address means not having at your disposal one of the main means of communication of the modern age. Well aware of this, you too, like many other users, have finally decided to create your own e-mail account. Following the advice of your most trusted friends, you have chosen to rely on Aruba and its services and now you would like to know how to access your inbox from all your devices so that you can use them without problems. If this is the case, I have good, indeed excellent news for you: I'm here ready to provide you with all the necessary explanations on how to configure Aruba mail.

Before you can be alarmed and can think of the worst, however, I want to reassure you immediately that configuring Aruba mail is a very simple operation. In fact, it is enough to have a minimum of patience and attention and that's it. However, know that depending on whether you choose to use your Aruba email on a computer or mobile device, the configuration procedure may be slightly different. In any case, nothing complicated.

If you are therefore willing to find out what you need to do to configure Aruba mail, I invite you to get comfortable and dedicate yourself to reading the following lines. You'll see that eventually you'll be ready to agree with me that setting up Aruba mail was actually a piece of cake. Ready? Yes? great, then let's get started.

Parameters to Configure Aruba Mail

To configure Aruba mail, you need to open your email client (ie the program you intend to use to manage your emails) and enter the "coordinates" of the Aruba servers. These "coordinates" vary depending on the protocol you intend to use to manage your e-mail. In fact, you can choose between the protocol IMAP and protocol POP3.

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, while the protocol POP3 is older 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).

Having made this necessary distinction, to be able to configure Aruba mail on your e-mail client and to be able to use it without problems, fill in the fields displayed on the screen by entering the following coordinates. Know that the information I am about to give you is valid for both mailboxes linked to a domain (of the type [email protected]) and for mailboxes with the suffix @ aruba.it or @ technet.it. They are NOT valid for PEC boxes.

If you are not satisfied with the official Aruba apps, you can access your mailboxes using third-party clients, such as Mail your iPhone or Email on Android. How? Obviously, using the IMAP / POP parameters that I provided you in the paragraphs dedicated to Aruba Mail or Aruba PEC.
