Outlook Express Email Setup

Setting up an Email Account with Outlook Express

Before starting:
  1. Make sure your domain name loads. If it doesn't load your your email account won't work.
  2. Make sure you have setup your email accounts at yourdomain.com/cpanel .
  3. Read the Email Policy, Limits and Rules before you forward or mail large amounts of email.

    You are now ready to begin setting up your email accounts.

  4. Open Outlook Express
  5. Go to "Tools" and click on "Accounts"
  6. A "Internet Accounts" window will pop up. Click on "Add", then click on "Mail".
  7. This will start up Internet Connection Wizard. Enter your name where it says
    "Display name:" and click "Next" at the bottom right.

  8. Enter your Email address in the input box. This should NOT be your
    Login "username@yourdomain.com",. Use "
    jlk@yourdomain.com, or whatever you want, then click Next.

  9. In the Incoming mail (POP3…) field type mail.yourdomain.com
    In the Outgoing mail (SMTP)… field type mail.yourdomain.com
    (so if your domain name is
    blueeyes.com, then you would put
    "mail.blueeyes.com" there (not in italic). Click Next.

  10. Now type in your "username" and "password" that you setup in the Cpanel
    using the same format, no caps or symbols.

  11. Just click Finish and you're done!
  12. In some cases the mail servers want to double check the access given to
    any Login. In that case, open the Properties window, click on the Servers Tab,
    at the bottom of the window, put a check mark in the box titled "My Server
    requires authentication", and click Apply and then Close.
    That adds a little extra security to your email access.
