How to set up Outlook to use your mail account

Setup Outlook - This is how to set up Microsoft Outlook to work with your e-mail account.


 

 

 

On the new server you can now set up IMAP accounts **

Select above instead of POP3 FILL OUT YOUR DETAILS AND THEN CLICK ON THE MORE SETTINGS BUTTON

 

 

Or for IMAP then carry on as below

 



Tick the Box on the More Settings tab which says My outgoing server requires
authentication - and also the box with use same settings as my incoming mail server

 

 

Then press on the Advanced tab and make sure 110 is set for POP and port 25 for SMTP

Note: If you Intend travelling abroad - it is a common practise for some ISPs to block port 25 ( Hence you cannot send mail while

outside the UK from Tablets and Phones) . If this is the case - you are better off to choose Port 587 for the Outgoing Server ( SMTP)
which is less commonly blocked abroad and also will send mails with no problems in the UK **

We have no control over which ports overseas ISP's may block - so for safety we recommend you set up a gmail account or similar
so you can use your tablet / phone abroad


The other workaround is Webmail - where you access your mailbox through a Browser. Simply type in webmail.yourdomain.co.uk
for example and then enter your user name and password. You can then send and receive mails through the web browser without

this restriction ** See our tutorial here : http://webjectives.co.uk/using_webmail.htm

If you are using a POP account on 2 machines - you may come up against an issue where when you download it on one

it doesnt come in on the other. To combat this - please use the same screen above. Tick the box which says " Leave a

copy of messages on the server " and set the remove after to 24 hours. This way you can download on one pc - and then

as long as you access the other within 24 hours - you will also get a copy on the 2nd PC before the server deletes the

mail

 

( Or if you selected to set up an IMAP account set the incoming port to 143 )
