Testing the accessibility of the email servers with ping

With Ping you can check whether you can reach our email server from your PC.

Please enter the command ping and the server name in the command prompt or in the terminal.

Here you can find examples of how a successful ping on our IMAP, Pop3 and SMTP servers under Windows looks like.
