Email: How to setup a POP account in Microsoft Outlook Express
This tutorial assumes you’ve already created your new email account in SiteAdmin or cPanel.
Now let’s learn how to setup that new email account in Outlook Express, so you’ll be able to send/receive emails to/from that new email account from here.
Now you have to enter your Incoming (POP3) and Outgoing (SMTP) server names. These server names will have been provided to you in your welcome email, and often times are simply mail.yourdomain.com.
8) Now enter the email username….. this is the entire email address ([email protected]).
We’re almost finished! But first let’s go finish configuring our email properties.
SMTP authentication means that Outlook Express will login to your mail server even when sending emails (not just receiving), ensuring that you are the only one that can send emails from your account.
17) Then click Settings.
That’s it! We’ve successfully setup an email account, and can now start sending and receiving emails to and from that account, from Outlook Express.
This is the end of the tutorial. You now know how to setup an email account in Outlook Express. Remember that you also have to create that email address in your hosting account before it will work.
