In addition to using Cogeco’s Webmail platform, you can also access your Cogeco email address from other email client software, such as Windows Mail, Apple Mail, or the default email program on your tablet or smartphone.

Adding your Cogeco email

On most modern email clients, you will only be required to enter your Cogeco email address and password. See below for guides from some common email clients.

If a server is not specified during the setup, IMAP will be selected by default. This will store your emails on our server so that they can be accessed from anywhere, rather than removing them from the server after they are downloaded to the device that you are using.

If you are asked for additional information during the setup or wish to set advanced settings, such as servers or ports, see below for the requirements in each province.

Advanced Setup Requirements

With an IMAP setup, your emails will be stored on our server so that they can be accessed from anywhere.
