How do I configure Outlook and Outlook Express for my E-Mail Accounts?
1. Your 'Outgoing Mail Server' will be the service provider that you use to connect to the internet, ie: smtp.telus.net.
2. Your 'Incoming Mail Server' will be your domain's mailserver name on Chromata's system, ie: mail.yourdomain.com.
3. Your 'User Name' will be your User name '@' your domain's mailserver name on Chromata's system, ie: firstname.lastname@example.org.
- In Outlook, go to the Tools menu and click on Email Accounts.
- Select Add a new email account and then click Next.
- Select POP3 and then click Next.
- Enter your email information:
- Your Name: your name
- Email Address: the email address the messages will be sent from
- Incoming Mail server (POP3): mail.domainname.xyz
- Outgoing Mail server (SMTP): mail.domainname.xyz
- User Name: the email address used to login to the webmail interface
- Password: the password for the email address
- In Outlook Express, go to the Tools menu. Click on Accounts...
- A box will appear. Click Add and select Mail.
- Enter your name as you want it to appear on your emails and click Next.
- Put in your email address, which consists of a user you set up in webmail and @yourdomain.xyz, and then click Next.
- Server type is POP3 and incoming and outgoing mail servers are mail.yourdomain.xyz (where yourdomain.xyz is your domain name and extension such as .com). Click on Next.
- Next, enter your email address for the Account Name. Enter the password you set for this account. Note: Do NOT check the box "Log on using Secure Password Authentication".
- Click Next and then click Finish. After you click Finish, you should see the following window. If not, go to the Tools menu, and click on Accounts. After clicking Accounts the window will appear. In this window, click on your domain until it is highlighted, then click on Properties.
- When the next screen appears, click on the Servers tab. Under Outgoing Mail Server, check the box next to My server requires authentication. Click Okay. Note: You MUST do this step so you can send mail from your domain.
- Now, you're ready to send and receive mail. To set up multiple accounts, follow these steps again.
