This tutorial will show you how to set up Microsoft Outlook to work with your e-mail account. These directions focus on setting up Microsoft Outlook 2010, but these settings are similar in other versions of Microsoft Outlook.
Adding a new account:
Select the ‘File’ menu.
Click the Add Account button.
Choose to Manually configure server settings.
Choose Internet E-Mail.
Enter your name as you want it to appear on your outbound email messages.
Enter your email address.
Enter your full email address as the User Name.
Enter your email password.
Your mail server is mail.YourDomain.com, eg mail.example.com.
The Outgoing Mail Server is the same as your incoming mail server.
Click the More Settings button.
Click the Outgoing Server tab.
Check the “My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication” checkbox.
Ensure you are using the same settings as your incoming mail server.
Click the Advanced tab.
If you are using POP3 with SSL, click the checkbox and select 995 for your port. Otherwise leave the port at 110.
If you are using POP3, you may choose when messages are removed from the server.
If you are using IMAP with SSL, click the checkbox and select 993 for your port. Otherwise leave the port at 143.
If you are using SMTP with SSL, click the checkbox and select 465 for your port. Otherwise change the port to 26.
