Configuring Outlook Express 5+

Outlook Express is an e-mail application included with Internet Explorer. When you installed Internet Explorer, it may have taken your current e-mail settings to be used for Outlook Express. Therefore, Outlook Express may already be configured with your ISP e-mail configuration!  If it isn't, or if you would like to add an e-mail address to Outlook Express, follow the procedure below. You can configure Outlook Express to check as many e-mail addresses as you like.

To add an e-mail account to Outlook Express:

Start Outlook Express.

Choose Accounts from the Tools menu.  The Internet Accounts window will open.

Click the Mail tab.  This will show you any e-mail accounts that are currently set up in Outlook Express.

Click the Add button.  A menu will pop up; choose Mail.

The Internet Connection wizard will appear to guide you through a series of configuration steps for the e-mail address you want to add.

Type in a friendly name that will help you remember this e-mail address (such as Harold's Mailbox or Mom's Mail) then Click Next.

Enter your name as you want it to appear in e-mails.   Click Next.

Click I already have an e-mail address that I would like to use radio button, then enter the e-mail address you want to add, in the form of username@domain.com and then click Next.

Replace domain with your domain name. For example, if your e-mail address ends with "ISP.com", then your domain is "ISP" or if your e-mail address ends with "sprynet.com" then your domain is "sprynet" and so on.

Enter the following information:

My incoming mail server is a: POP3

Incoming mail (POP3 or IMAP) server: mail.[yourdomain]
(ex. if your domain is yourdomain.net, enter mail.yourdomain.net)

Outgoing mail (SMTP) server: mail.[yourdomain]
(ex. if your domain is yourdomain.net, enter mail.yourdomain.net)

Click the first log on using radio button and enter the following information:

POP account name: Your mailbox name
Password: Your e-mail password.

Click Next.  The Friendly Name window will appear.

Type in a friendly name that will help you remember this e-mail address (such as John Q. Public's Mailbox or Mom's Mail).

Click Next. The Choose Connection Type window will appear.

Choose one of the following connection types:

If you connect to your ISP through your modem, click the Connect using my phone line radio button.

If you connect to your ISP via your office network or cable modem (LAN), click the Connect using my local area network (LAN) radio button. 

If you wish to connect to your ISP manually before you open Outlook Express, choose the I will establish my Internet connection manually radio button.

Click Finish.

Click Tools.

Click Accounts.

Click the Mail tab, select your newly created account, click Properties.

Select the Servers tab and check My Server Requires Authentication, click Settings.

Remember, customers that are using internet providers such as Mindspring, UUnet and Prodigy must use their provider's outgoing mail server. There may be other ISP's that require users to use their local SMTP servers as well. Please contact them for more information.
