We have recently updated our email system. If you have not yet signed in since the update, please note that you will be asked to provide your email and/or mobile phone number for easy password recovery. Just follow the steps to do this and then enjoy your new email experience.
IMPORTANT: If you are using a mail client, you will need to sign in to that application and check the server settings on your device to make sure they follow the information shown in the table. FAQs >
|Incoming Server (choose POP or IMAP)||POP: pop.centurylink.net, Port: 995, Security: SSL
IMAP: mail.centurylink.net, Port: 993, Security: SSL
|Outgoing Server||SMTP: smtp.centurylink.net, Port: 587, Security: TLS if available|
Next time you sign in to your email, just check the box that says "Remember Me." That's all there is to it!
For security purposes, do not select this option if you are on a public device.
Tip: Are you having guests, or would just like a little extra security for a short time without changing your settings? You can simply click the "log out" link on your homepage, and the next time you try to access your email, you'll be asked to log in, regardless of whether it's set to remember you.
The "log out" link overrides all settings and is your safeguard.
With restricted privacy set, you will be prompted to enter your password every time you try to access your email, regardless of whether you remembered to click the "log out" link last time you visited the site.
Note: We recommend choosing this restricted privacy option if you share your computer with another person.
Be sure to store your username and password in a safe place. Learn more about creating strong passwords.

Like many free web-based email services, unused CenturyLink email accounts are deactivated after a certain amount of time. To keep your CenturyLink email active, be sure to log in at least once a year. Accounts with no activity for more than a year will be deactivated and all contents deleted.
