Guide

Step 1

When you first start Outlook, you see a folder list on the left and a message or contents list on the right. For example, if I wished to work with my contacts I would click on the contacts button on the left and it would appear on the right ready for me to make changes.

To setup your POP email account we will need to be in a different area of the program. Click "Tools" to open the next window.

Step 2

Once you click on "Tools" a menu drops down. Look for "Accounts" in this menu.

If you have an older version of Outlook you may have an entry for "Services" instead. This tutorial does not cover how to setup those versions of Outlook. Most likely you will see "Accounts" in the list.

You are now in the Internet Accounts dialogue box. On the right you will see an "Add" button. Click it and a small option box will pop up as pictured below. One of the options in this box is "Mail." Notice that there is also a tab labeled "Mail." We are looking for the entry in the option box, not the tab.

This is the third screen of the Connection Wizard. This is where you type the name for your incoming server. If I owned johnsmith.com and setup email accounts for it, the name of my incoming mail server would be mail.johnsmith.com. Just add "mail." to the front of your domain name..

Then enter the outgoing mail server in the second blank. This is the outgoing mail server for your ISP, ie if you are with netvigator.com your outgoing mail server would be mail.netvigator.com
