A Mail Server acts as a digitized version of a mailman. Basically, your email is passed on from one mailman to another, that is one Mail Server to another, until it reaches its destination.
Of course in contrast, Mail Servers work thousands of times faster, allowing you to receive emails almost instantly. Without these servers, emails would still be sent but only to addresses using the same domain name, e.g., [email protected] would be able to send a message to [email protected], but not to [email protected].
To set up your email address on an email client, you will need to connect using your incoming and outgoing mail servers. If your emails are hosted with Crazy Domains, make sure you use the following settings for your Mail Servers.
