For security reasons, our web server is blocked PORT 25. Every website can only send email via SMTP with PORT other than 25.
You may use third-party SMTP server. For example, use Gmail's SMTP server (smtp.gmail.com) via PORT 465 or 587.
You may use our SMTP server smtp.techubs.com too. Before you use our SMTP server, please create an email account at Web hosting admin panel, then use the created account information at your web program, make a connection to our SMTP server via PORT 587 to send email.

Both IMAP and POP3 server are used by clients to retrieve their emails. However, they are different.

When you use IMAP to get your email, only the email header parts (eg. email subject, email from address, email to address etc..) will be fetched to your device. The body part of your email will only be downloaded when you read the email, therefore, you can only read your email while you are connected to the Internet. The original email will be kept on the server forever until you manually instruct the server to delete it.
Besides, IMAP supports adding flags (eg: Seen, Answered, Flagged, Deleted, Draft) to the email message while POP3 do not.

For email processing, we provide two servers for client to access, one for receiving email and one for sending email. They are pop.techubs.com and smtp.techubs.com respectively. If you setup your email using these two servers with SSL or TLS connection, you will NOT get the alert message because the certificate used on our servers are using the common names pop.techubs.com and smtp.techubs.com, which are matched to the hostnames you specified.
However, if you use your own domain name as a suffix for accessing the email servers, for example, if your domain is hkbizs.com and you use pop.hkbizs.com and smtp.hkbizs.com to access our servers, you will get the certificate verification failures message. It is because the names pop.hkbizs.com and smtp.hkbizs.com are just alias names for our server pop.techubs.com and smtp.techubs.com. These alias names are not matched to our certificate common names.
