How do I set up my email account in Outlook 2003/XP?

  1. With Outlook 2003/2002 open From the Tools menu, select "Email Accounts." (If you do not see "Accounts," place your cursor over the two arrows at the bottom of the list to display more choices.)
  2. Select the radio button next to "Add a new email account" and click the "Next" button.
  3. Select the radio button next to "POP3" and click the "Next" button.
  4. Enter the following information: 
    • User Information
    • Your Name: Enter your name as you would like it to appear in the "From" field of your outgoing messages.
    • Email Address: Enter your full email address (e.g., john@example.com).
    • Server Information
    • Incoming (POP3) Server: 'mail.yourdomain.com'
    • Outgoing (SMTP) Server: 'mail.yourdomain.com'
  5. Login Information
  6. User Name: Enter your full Email Address.
  7. Password: Enter your password.
  8. Do not check the box next to "Log on using Secure Password Authentication (SPA)."
  9. Click the "More Settings" box and select the "Outgoing Server" tab.
  10. Check the box next to "My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication."
  11. Click on the advanced tab and Change your outgoing server setting to 25. While this setting should work, some ISP's (such as Telstra) block this port. If you have trouble sending mail, change this setting to first 465, and if your issues aren't resolved, 587.
  12. Click ok then finish to finish your email set up
