Charter Communications is one of the top cable providers in the United States. The company offers cable television, Internet, telephone, and wireless services. So, what happened to Charter email? They were taken over.

Part of their rebranding was also to rename Charter Email to Spectrum Webmail, preserving the domain charter.net.

The email service can be accessed by long-time customers via the old Charter.net email login webmail address.

New customers can use Spectrum email on a desktop or laptop via the Spectrum webmail interface. Should you need further help accessing your Charter Spectrum email login page, we got your back.

But what Spectrum email settings to pick? What is the POP3 server for Spectrum email?

How about the IMAP server? These are all legitimate questions that we shall try to answer accordingly.

But first, let’s see what we’re dealing with and what is the difference between IMAP SMTP and POP.

Is Charter email a POP3 or IMAP?

The Charter or Spectrum webmail interface allows new users to utilize email on a desktop or laptop. They provide both POP and IMAP protocols for mobile devices or Mac, enabling you to connect via third-party services such as Outlook or Gmail.

Speaking of that, we can also help you set up Charter email settings for Outlook if you prefer this option.

The difference between the two is that IMAP allows you to access your emails from any location or device without downloading content locally. Instead, you can go through a different email provider (see above) in order to view your messages directly.

However, you must first sign up for at least one other service that Spectrum offers, as well as create an email account to use Spectrum email, and set up email server details.
