Each email provider will require different settings in SixBit. It is impossible to list the settings for all email providers, but as we help users and learn the settings for different providers, we'll add them here in an effort to assist others in the future. If you have working settings for your email provider, please feel free to send along your settings to support@sixbitsoftware.com for inclusion in this list.

Note: You may need to create an app password to use in SixBit.  To do this see Google's Instructions: https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/6010255?hl=en
For Gmail accounts using 2-factor authentication, users will need to follow steps to generate an App Password and use that in place of their password.

Generating an App Password for Gmail:

1. Go to your Google Account.

2. Select Security.

3. Under "Signing in to Google," select App Passwords. You may need to sign in. If you don’t have this option, it might be because:

    > 2-Step Verification is not set up for your account.

    > 2-Step Verification is only set up for security keys.

    > Your account is through work, school, or other organizations.

    > You turned on Advanced Protection.

4. At the bottom, choose Select app and choose the app you using and then Select device and choose the device you’re using and then Generate.

5. Follow the instructions to enter the App Password. The App Password is the 16-character code in the yellow bar on your device.

6. Tap Done.
