How to Set Up Outlook Express

  1. Open Outlook Express. The Internet Connection Wizard will run the first time you open Outlook Express. If the Internet Connection Wizard doesn't run when you first open Outlook Express, do the following:
    1. On the Tools menu, click Accounts.
    2. In the Internet Accounts dialog box, click Add, and then click Mail.
  2. On the Your Name page, enter your full name in the Display name box.
  3. On the Internet E-mail Address page, enter your e-mail address in the E-mail address box.
  4. On the E-mail Server Names page, in the drop-down menu under My incoming mail server is a <type> server, select IMAP or POP3. IMAP4 supports more features.
  5. Under Incoming mail (POP3, IMAP or HTTP) server, enter your POP3 or IMAP4 server name. For information about how to find your incoming (POP3 or IMAP4) server name.
  6. Under Outgoing mail (SMTP) server, enter the SMTP server name. For information about how to find your outgoing (SMTP) server nam.
    After you enter the server name, click Next.
  7. On the Internet Mail Logon page, enter your e-mail address and password. If you want Outlook Express to remember your password, select the check box next to Remember password. Click Next.
  8. On the Congratulations page, click Finish.
  9. On the Internet Accounts page, select the account you just set up, and then click Properties.
  10. On the Properties page for the account, click the Advanced tab, and then do the following:
    1. Under Server Port Numbers, under Outgoing mail (SMTP), select This server requires a secure connection (SSL).
    2. Under Incoming mail (IMAP) or Incoming mail (POP3), select This server requires a secure connection (SSL).
    3. If you're using POP3, it's a good idea to keep a copy of the messages you retrieve to your local computer on the server. To do this, under Delivery, click Leave a copy of messages on the server. This lets you access your messages from a different e-mail program.
    4. Click Apply.
  11. On the Servers tab, under Outgoing Mail Server, click My server requires authentication.
  12. Click Apply, and then click OK.
  13. On the Internet Accounts page, click Close.
  14. If you're using IMAP4, a message appears that asks you if you want to download folders for the mail server you added. Click Yes. Use Outlook Express to select which folders to synchronize between the server and your local computer, and then click OK.
