cwgsy.net email

Is 'cwgsy.net' email still available?

We no longer issue new '@cwgsy.net' e-mail addresses. This has been replaced with a new domain - '@suremail.gg' available here. However you may continue to use your existing '@cwgsy.net' e-mail address on the upgraded service.

Existing '@cwgsy.net' email users may be required to make minor configuration amendments within their e-mail client settings to access email on the new service.

cwgsy.net settings for email software

You can set up various devices and clients (email software such as Outlook, Thunderbird, Mac Mail etc) to work with your cwgsy.net account but you'll need some of the following settings.

Choose either a POP3 or IMAP server as shown below. The main difference is that POP3 will usually delete a message from the server once downloaded, freeing up storage space, but IMAP will usually leave it in place so that you can access your email from a different device or location, but requires more storage space.

Many modern programs automatically choose some of the settings for you, such as port numbers. If any fields are already populated, please double-check them, and don't worry if you're not asked for everything. You may need to check 'advanced settings' depending on the software you're using.

cwgsy.net settings with secure SSL encryption

We strongly recommend using SSL encryption, which adds enhanced security* to your email account. Use the following settings for a secure connection:

Incoming mail server secure.emailsrvr.com
Incoming port (POP3)
Incoming port (IMAP) 993
Outgoing mail server secure.emailsrvr.com
Outgoing port (SMTP)
Encryption/security yes: SSL
Authentication Auto, password or 'same as incoming server'
User/login name yourname@cwgsy.net
(use your own email address)

* SSL offers enhanced email security by encrypting information between your device and our server. It does not gaurantee security to or from a recipient/sender as they may not be using secure settings themselves. Email shouldn't be considered an entirely secure method of communication and sending personal or sensitive information via email is not advised.

cwgsy.net settings with low security

We strongly recommend that you use the above secure settings to access your email. If you have a particular reason not to, you may want to use the settings below. Please be aware that the following details will allow you to access your SureMail account, but won't offer any security or encryption.

Incoming mail server mail.cwgsy.net
Incoming port (POP3)
Incoming port (IMAP) 143
Outgoing mail server mail.cwgsy.net
Outgoing port (SMTP)
Encryption/security none
Authentication Auto, password or 'same as incoming server'
User/login name yourname@cwgsy.net
(use your own email address)

Keeping your address if you leave Sure

If you choose to cancel your mobile or broadband service, you may continue to use your e-mail address, but a charge of £0.50 per month will apply from the date that we receive your cancellation request.
