How can I access my RoadRunner email?

Answered by Ricardo McCardle

To access your RoadRunner email, you can follow these steps:

1. Open your preferred email program or mobile mail app. Examples include Microsoft Outlook, Apple Mail, Mozilla Thunderbird, or the default email app on your smartphone.

2. Navigate to the settings or preferences section of your email program. This is usually found in the menu bar or under the “Tools” or “Options” tab.

3. Look for the option to add a new email account or manage existing accounts. Click on this option to proceed.

4. In the account setup screen, you will be prompted to enter your email address and password. Make sure to enter your full RoadRunner email address correctly (e.g., [email protected]).

5. Next, you need to select the account type. Choose “IMAP” as the account type. IMAP stands for Internet Message Access Protocol and allows you to sync your emails across multiple devices.

6. Now, you will need to enter the IMAP server settings. For the incoming mail server, enter “”. This is the server that will receive your incoming emails.

7. Set the IMAP port number to 993. This is the specific port used for secure IMAP connections.

8. Enable SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) or TLS (Transport Layer Security) for the IMAP security. This ensures that your email communications are encrypted for added security.

9. For the outgoing mail server (SMTP), enter “” again.

10. Set the SMTP port number to 587. This is the standard port used for outgoing mail.

11. Enable SSL or TLS for the SMTP security as well.

12. Once you have entered all the necessary information, click on the “Next” or “Continue” button to proceed.

13. Your email program will now attempt to verify your account settings and establish a connection with the RoadRunner email servers. If everything is entered correctly, you should see a success message.

14. you will be asked to give a name to your email account. This is how it will be displayed in your email program. You can choose any name you prefer or use your RoadRunner email address as the account name.

15. Click on the “Finish” or “Done” button to complete the setup process.

Once your RoadRunner email account is set up in your email program, you should be able to access your emails, send and receive messages, and manage your mailbox just like you would with any other email account.

It’s worth noting that the exact steps and options may vary slightly depending on the email program or app you are using. However, the general concept remains the same.
