You must have a valid @cyberlink.ca email address or Cyberlink hosted domain email address to send/receive email via our mail servers.

If you use Cyberlink for your Internet Access with another service for your email, Google, Yahoo etc., you should contact their Support Services Department for instructions on how to configure your email program.

Please refer to the help menu from your email client to make the appropriate setting changes or call our support line for assistance.

Cyberlink Systems Corp supports both POP3 and IMAP, two different protocols (methods) used to access email.

Of the two, IMAP is the better option – and the recommended option – when you need to check your emails from multiple devices, such as a work laptop, a home computer, or a tablet, smartphone, or other mobile device. Tap into your synced (updated) account from any device with IMAP.

By default, POP3 downloads email from a server to a single computer, then deletes it from the server. Because your messages get downloaded to a single computer or device and then deleted from the server, it can appear that mail is missing or disappearing from your Inbox if you try to check your mail from a different computer. If you need, or want, to download messages to your computer instead of storing them on the server, you can configure your POP3 email clients to “leave a copy of messages on server” for a set number of days allowing you to download copies of your message to multiple devices.

Differences between POP3 and IMAP.

POP3 – Post Office Protocol

  • Difficult to configure for checking messages on more than one computer to check your email (no other devices)
  • Your mails are stored on the computer that you use providing storage space limited only by your hard drive.
  • Sent mail is stored locally on your PC, not on a mail server

IMAP – Internet Messaging Access Protocol

  • By default you can use multiple computers and devices to check your email
  • Your mails are stored on the server, storage space limited to your mailbox size.
  • Sent mail stays on the server so you can see it from any device.
