Setting up Outlook for Email

How do I setup my email in Outlook?
Outlook is similar to Outlook Express.

Go to 'Tools' -> 'Email Accounts' -> 'Add a new e-mail account' -> 'POP3'

User Information:
Your Name: [as you wish]
E-mail address: []

Server Information:

Incoming mail server (POP3):
Outgoing mail server (SMTP): or your ISPs SMTP Server settings.

Logon Information:

User Name: [full email address (example:]
Password: [email account password]

Log on using Secure Password Authentication (SPA) is NOT checked.

Click 'More Settings ...' -> 'Outgoing Server' Tab.

'My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication' IS checked.

(use same settings as...) is checked. (NOTE: not all ISP allow you to use SMTP servers that are not their own, so you may be required to use the settings for sending email they provide.)

Click 'OK' and you're finished.

If you want the port settings for the Advanced tab in the settings, the standard ports are usually already filled in and work fine without changes; port 25 for SMTP, port 110 for POP, port 143 for IMAP. Your server may also have an alternate port 26 or 587 open for SMTP if your ISP blocks port 25.
