Setup A New Account - Microsoft Outlook 2010

 

Open Microsoft Outlook 2010.


 

At the top of the page click on the 'Tools' menu and then select 'Account Settings...'.


 

>Tools > Account Settings...



E-mail Accounts

Click the 'New' button under the 'Email' tab.


Auto Account Setup

Check the box at the bottom for 'Manually configure server settings or additional server types'.


 

Note: at this point, depending on whether the user has setup a previous account in Outlook, the next couple screens may very in order but they are nearly identical, just confirm with the user which menu they are viewing.


 

They will see either the 'Choose Email Service' (POP, IMAP, HTTP) or the user's settings window with 'Manually configure server settings or additional server types'.


 

The key point is that they check the box to 'Manually configure server settings or additional server types' and select the type of email service for the account (POP/IMAP).


Choose E-mail Service

Choose the E-mail Service: Put a dot in 'Internet Email' (or in 'Microsoft Exchange, POP3, IMAP, or HTTP' depending on the screen user is viewing).

 


Make sure that your settings look like the settings shown in this screenshot.

The following are the most important:

  • Your Name: Your Name (eg. test)
  • E-mail Address: email@domain.tld (eg.test@whoisping.com
  • Incoming mail server (POP3): mail.domain.tld (eg. mail.whoisping.com)
  • Outgoing mail server (SMTP): mail.domain.tld (eg. mail.whoisping.com)
  • User Name: email.domain.tld (eg. john.test.com NOTE test@whoisping.com)
  • Password: The one you specified in your EasyMail Setup (8 characters maximum).

Once your settings look like the settings shown in this screenshot, click on the 'More Settings...' button in the bottom right hand corner.
 

 

Internet E-mail Settings

Click the 'Outgoing Server' tab at the top of the screen.


Outgoing Server

Put a checkmark in 'My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication' and make sure that the dot is in 'Use same settings as my incoming mail server'.
