Configuring Your Email Client for OB Mail

From support.mayfirst.org:

All email clients need your settings for incoming mail and for outgoing mail. Your incoming mail will be either POP or IMAP. The choice between POP and IMAP depends on your own preferences, but if you aren't sure what to choose, and you plan to use one primary computer most of the time, we suggest you stick with POP.

Your username and password you set up when you created your email accounts.
