How do I configure my POP mail account in Outlook Express 6?




Setting Up Your E-mail in MS Outlook Express 6

This tutorial shows you how to set up Microsoft Outlook Express 6 to work with your e-mail account. First, you need to add the mail account to your control panel. Once you have added the mail account, you can continue setting up your Outlook Express for mail access.

To Set Up Your E-mail Account in Microsoft Outlook Express

  1. In Microsoft Outlook Express, select Tools > Accounts.



  2. Select the "Mail" tab in the Internet Accounts window and click "Add."



  3. Enter you full name and click Next.



  4. Enter your e-mail address and click Next.



  5. On the E-mail Server Names window, enter your information as follows:

    My incoming mail server is a
    POP3 server
    Incoming mail (POP3) server
    mail.yourdomain.com, where yourdomain.com is your domain name.
    Outgoing mail (SMTP) server
    mail.yourdomain.com, where yourdomain.com is your domain name.

    Click Next.
    NOTE: If your ISP blocks the default port 25 to our network you will need to change the port to 26 which is our secondary SMTP port setup for such cases.



  6. Enter your e-mail address for your account name and enter your password (the one you used when you created the mail account in your control panel).Click Next.



  7. Click Finish.



  8. Select the mail account you just created and click "Properties."



  9. In the Properties window, select the Servers tab.
  10. At the bottom of the window, select "My server requires authentication."
