Before you can use Outlook Express to send and receive e-mail, you
need to set up an account. You can have more than one account—for
business, online shopping, and so on—and each person who uses
your computer may have their own, completely separate account.
Start Outlook Express and, on the Tools menu, click Accounts.
If the Internet Connection Wizard starts up automatically, skip ahead
to step 3.
2. If the Internet Accounts
window appears, click Add, and then click Mail to open
3. The Your Name page
of the internet connection wizard will now appear. In the space beside
"Display name," type your name as you want it to appear
to everyone who gets e-mail from you, and then click Next.
4. The Internet E-mail Address
page will appear next. Type your e-mail address, which may also be
referred to as your username, and then click Next.
5. On the E-mail Server Names
page, fill in the information as it you see it here, and then click
6. The Internet Mail Logon
page is next. Type in your account name and password.
Note: If you’re concerned about break-ins to your e-mail,
click on the check in the Remember Password box to clear it.
You’ll then be prompted for the password each time you send
or retrieve mail.
7. You have now successfully set up your email account. Click
8. Next, you will need to set
up your SMTP Authentication. The Internet Accounts page
will reappear on the screen. Click on Properties.
9. Under General, type
in your Name and Full Email Address. Click Apply. Then, click
on the Servers tab.
10. The Server Information
should appear as it does here. Type in your full email address and
password, then check the box "My server requires authentication."
Click Apply, then click on Settings.
11. The Outgoing Mail Server
window will appear. Type in your full username, which is your full
e-mail address, and your password. Then click OK.
12. Close the Internet Accounts
window, then go to your Inbox.
You're ready to send your first email!
