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
To manually add e-mail accounts in Outlook Express:
1. Open Outlook Express
2. Move to the "Tools" drop down menu and select "Accounts."
3. Select "Add Mail" from the "Right" menu option.
4. In the "account name box", enter a name for your mail account, and click "Next."
4. In the "Email Box", enter the email address for this account and click "Next."
5. Set "Mail Server Names"
6. Enter the "Login and Password" for this email account. Use the "full email address" as the login name of the account you're configuring, as illustrated in the following "example."
7. Click "Finish." and you'll see a message like this:
8. Do not exit your account settings yet! Highlight your "New Account" and select "Properties." as illustrated in the following example:
9. In the properties dialog box, select "Servers", then select the "My Server Requires Authentication" option as shown below:
That's pretty well it! Close your account settings and test out your new address by sending a message to it. If you're able to send a message, and receive that same message in your new account, then congratulations! - you've successfully setup your first email account on our servers. You can configure as many email accounts as your like in Outlook Express using the same above process.
Potential problems with sending
1. Change the "SMTP Outgoing Mail Server" settings to the same ones as you're using on your ISP's email account. To do this, have a look at "Step 8" just a few above this one. In this case, select the properties of your ISP mail account, then go to properties, and select "Servers." Copy those "SMTP Outgoing Mail Server" settings to your new account, or write them down and enter them in manually.
2. Deselect the "My Server Requires Authentication" option.
DO NOT CHANGE ANYTHING ELSE! You can now receive mail from your domain account, while sending mail will be accomplished through your ISP's SMTP servers. This will in no way effect the performance or look of your email messages coming from your domain.
