Incoming mail server (POP3): This will normally be your domain name with 'mail.' in front of it, i.e. if you domain name is 'yourdomain.com' then this will be 'mail.yourdomain.com'.
Outgoing mail server (SMTP): This will normally be the SMTP email server used by your Internet Service Provider who supplies your internet connection. A list of popular ISPs and their SMTP servers is provided below. If your broadband supplier required SMTP authentication, such as BTInternet (*see note at bottom of page), then click the More Settings button and enter the username and password supplied by your broadband supplier.
After you have entered all the account settings click Test Account Settings.
Finally click Next and then Finish.
You have now set up your account .
Click the Send/Receive button in Outlook and any email messages stored on the server will be downloaded to your Outlook Inbox. You can always test it by sending an email addressed to yourself. Wait for a little while after sending it and then click the Send/Receive button and it will be downloaded back from the server.

*Many users who have their broadband service provided by BTInternet have reported problems sending their outgoing mail via the BTInternet SMTP server. With BTInternet you have to authenticate the outgoing SMTP mail with username and password for your BTInternet email that was supplied by BTInternet as part of your broadband package. In some cases you may need to register your domain with BTInternet to be allowed to send emails that have the reply address set as your domain and not your BTInternet address. To do this contact BT Technical support as detailed at www.btbroadbandoffice.com and ask to register your domain for Mail Relay Authorisation. You will be asked to supply proof that you are the owner or otherwise authorised to use the domain.
