Setup POP Account in Outlook
Here is the “HOW TO” for Setup POP Account in Outlook. I’m adding this one for all my clients as I get to explain this on a daily basis over the phone!
Click on FILE and ACCOUNT SETTINGS
Click on NEW and select E-MAIL ACCOUNT (Click NEXT)
Select MANUALLY CONFIGURE SERVER SETTINGS OR ADDITIONAL SERVER TYPES (Click NEXT)
Select INTERNET E-MAIL (Click NEXT)
Fill in “your name” and the email address that you want to add.
Fill in “incoming mail server” and outgoing mail server (SMTP)” (These server names must be supplied by your ISP hosting your email mailboxes)
Fill in the “username” and “Password”
Then click on MORE SETTINGS and select the OUTGOING MAIL SERVER tab at the top
Tick the MY OUTGOING SERVER (SMTP) REQUIRES AUTHENTICATION and select USE SAME SETTINGS AS INCOMING MAIL SERVER
(Make sure that your ISP support Outgoing Mail Server Authentication, but the standard these days are that they do. The reason for this option is so that you don’t have to change your outgoing mail server settings when you use hotspots or wireless connection at public areas)
Then select the tab CONNECTIONS on top
Here you can change your Outgoing Mail Server Port. The default port is normally 25, but because of the big amount of spam these days, some ISP require that you change that port to 587.
(Confirm this setting with your ISP)
When you are done, click OK to close the MORE SETTINGS window
I would recommend that you do a test on your newly settup email account by clicking on TEST ACCOUNT SETTINGS.
If the test account settings give you all Green Marks you can click NEXT and FINISH.
