Setting Up Your E-mail in Microsoft Outlook - Windows Users

This tutorial shows you how to set up Microsoft Outlook 2003® to work with your e-mail account. This tutorial focuses on setting up Microsoft Outlook 2003, but these settings are similar in other versions of Microsoft Outlook. You can set up previous versions of Microsoft Outlook by using the settings in this tutorial.

In Microsoft Outlook, from the E-mail Accounts menu, select Tools.

On the E-mail Accounts wizard window, select Add a new e-mail account, and then click Next.

For your server type, select POP3 or IMAP, and then click Next.

On the Internet E-mail Settings (POP3/IMAP) window, enter your information as follows:

NOTE: In order to use the SMTP Outgoing server to send e-mails, you must first activate SMTP relay on your e-mail account. Log on to your Manage Email Accounts page to set up SMTP relay.

Contact your Internet Service Provider to get this setting.
