Microsoft Outlook is easy to use, yet advanced mail software that comes with Microsoft Office. This tutorial shows you how to set up Microsoft Outlook to check your email. This tutorial focuses on setting up Microsoft Outlook 2013, but these settings are similar in other versions of Microsoft Outlook. You can set up previous versions of Microsoft Outlook by using the settings in this tutorial. Make sure you have created your email address in the Hosting Manager before setting it up in Outlook 2013.
If you have, then continue below.
Setting up Outlook 2013
Step 1. When you first open Outlook, it will show a Welcome to Outlook 2013 message. Click Next to get started.
|Your Name:||Enter the identifying name for your email address. In the example, this is Bob Smith, but it can be a functional name as well such as Your Business Sales.|
|Email Address:||Enter the full email address, such as firstname.lastname@example.org.|
|Account Type:||Choose whether you want to use POP3 or IMAP. POP3 downloads and removes your emails from the server, while IMAP leaves them on the server. We recommend POP3 (this is the default option).|
|Incoming mail server:||Standard settings are mail.yourdomain.com (Replace yourdomain.com with your actual domain).|
|Outgoing mail server (SMTP):||We recommend using the Outgoing Mail Server Name of your current Internet Server Provider (ISP). Alternatively, you can use mail.yourdomain.com (replace yourdomain.com with your actual domain).|
|User Name:||Enter your full email address, such as email@example.com.|
|Password:||Enter the password you use for this email address. We recommend checking the Remember Password option so Outlook will save your password for future use.|
|Require logon using Secure Password Authentication:||Do not check this option.|
Congratulations, you have added your email account to Outlook 2013.
