How do I set up Microsoft Outlook 2010 to receive / send e-mails?


Microsoft Outlook and Windows Mail Instructions:

  1. Open Microsoft Outlook
  2. Click on "Tools" in the top menu and select "Account Settings…".
  3. Under the “E-mail” tab click on "New…”, select "Microsoft Exchange, POP3, IMAP, or HTTP" (it’s selected by  default) and click on “Next >”.
  4. Click on the “Manually configure server settings or additional server types” checkbox and click “Next >”.
  5. Leave the default radio button selected “Internet E-mail” and click “Next >”
  6. Fill in the information requested according to:
            •    User Information – Your Name: and E-mail Address:
            •    Account Type: POP3 or IMAP Server:
            •    Incoming mail server and Outgoing mail server (SMTP):
            •    Enter your complete E-Mail address as the "User Name".
            •    Enter your password in the Password field.
            •    Click on the “More Settings…” button.
  7. On the new windows that pops-up, click on the “Outgoing Server” tab, click on the "My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication" checkbox. Select "Use same settings as my incoming mail server".
  8. Click on the "Advanced" tab and under Outgoing Server (SMTP), change the port from 25 to 587. The “Incoming server (POP3)” should remain the same “110”.
  9. Click on "OK".
  10. Optional - Click on “Test Account Settings…” button. You should get a pop-up window that starts testing your connections. The Status for both tests to be successful must be: “Completed” (if that is not the case, make sure you go over the steps again). Click on “Close”
  11. Click “Next >” and on “Finish” on the next window.
