    • The POP3 (incoming mail) setting is: mail.mymtnmail.co.za
    • The SMTP (outgoing mail) setting is: mail.mtn.co.za

    Please Note: If you use a PC client to download email then the emails will no longer be available on the website. Please note that you can only send emails using the SMTP server if you are using an MTN data connection (eg: MTN Data Card or using an MTN cell phone as a modem).
