Hello Mikey, I'm sorry for the delayed response. At this time we do not recommend the use of the IMAP protocol as it is not currently compatible with our email system however, you can download the latest version of Outlook 2013 that supports the POP3 server and configure your HughesNet email address by referring the server settings mentioned below.

Protocol: POP3
Incoming mail server address: mail.hughes.net
Outgoing mail server address: smtp.hughes.net
Server Port NumbersIncoming mail (POP3): 110
Outgoing mail (SMTP): 25

Please let me know if you have any follow up questions. Thank you, Sara
