How do I setup my e-mail account in Outlook?

Once you have created your e-mail account in your Web Hosting Control Panel, you can set up your favorite email program to start sending and receiving email. 

To configure your email account in Outlook, follow these steps:

  1. Go to Tools > Email Accounts. (This will open a popup window.)
     
  2. Select "Add a new e-mail account". Click "Next".
     
  3. Select "Manual setup or additional server types". Click "Next".


     
  4. Select "POP or IMAP" and click "Next".


     
  5. Fill out your personal details, selecting either IMAP or POP as the account type. In both the "Incoming mail server" and the "Outgoing mail server" fields, enter "mail.yourdomain.com". (Be sure to replace "yourdomain.com" with your actual domain name.).


     
  6. In the "User Name" field, enter your complete email address. In the "Password" field, enter the email password you entered when you created the email address in the Web Hosting Control Panel.

    Note: The User Name is case sensitive. For example, if you create an email address in the Web Hosting Control panel named "MyExampleEmail@example.com", then the User Name entered into Outlook will need to match its mixed upper and lower case.



  7. You're not done yet! Tick the "Secure Password Authentication" box and then click the "More Settings" button. This will open another "Internet E-mail Settings" popup window.


  8. Click on the "Outgoing Server" tab. Click the "My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication" checkbox.

  9. Click the "Advanced" tab. Ensure that you select "TLS" in the dropdown box for both Incoming Server and Outgoing Server. You need to ensure the port number for the Incoming Server (IMAP) is 143 and the Outgoing Server (SMTP) is 25. Now click the "OK" button.



  10. Back in the original popup window, click the "Next" button.
  11. Click the "Finish" button.
