  1. Email Setup on Outlook Express

    Setting up your email on Outlook Express is super easy and will not take you more than 5 minutes. So let's do it:

    1. If you have opened Outlook Express for the first time, skip the initial wizard

    2. Click on the Tools menu

    3. Click on Accounts

    4. Click on the Mail tab

    5. Click on Add

    6. Click on Mail

    7. Enter your Display name

    8. Click on Next

    9. Enter your Email address

    10. Click on Next

    11. Select Incoming mail server as a POP3 or IMAP server. We'd suggest using POP3, it keeps a copy of your email on your computer so that you can view it even if you're offline

    12. Enter the Incoming mail server as pop.yourdomain.com (‘imap.yourdomain.com’ if you are using IMAP)

      Note:
      If you have a Linux Hosting package, set the Incoming mail server to 'mail.yourdomain.com'
      If you have a Windows Hosting package, set the Incoming mail server to 'yourdomain.com'

    13. Enter the Outgoing mail server as smtp.yourdomain.com

      Note:
      If you have a Linux Hosting package, set the Outgoing mail server to 'mail.yourdomain.com'
      If you have a Windows Hosting package, set the Outgoing mail server to 'yourdomain.com'

    14. Click on Next

    15. Enter your Email address as the Account name

    16. Enter your existing Email Password

    17. Leave Log on using Secure Password Authentication(SPA) unchecked

    18. Click on Next

    19. Click Finish

    20. You'll now see the Email account created in the Mail tab. Just a few more additional steps and you're good to go

    21. Select your mail account

    22. Click on Properties

    23. Click on the Servers tab

    24. Tick My server requires authentication

    25. Click on the Advanced tab

    26. Set the Port for Outgoing mail(SMTP) to 587

    27. Set the Port for Incoming mail(POP3) to 110 (Note - If you're using IMAP, you need to set it to 143)

    28. Tick Leave a copy of mesages on server. This will ensure that a copy of your email is stored on our servers even after it gets downloaded to your Outlook Express

    29. Click OK

    30. Click on Close


    That’s it. You're all set to use your email account on your Outlook Express.
