Setup Outlook 2010

This tutorial shows you how to set up Microsoft Outlook 2010® to work with your e-mail account. This tutorial focuses on setting up Microsoft Outlook 2010, 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.

  1. Open Microsoft Outlook 2010.
    At the top of the page click on the 'Tools' menu and then select 'Account Settings...'.
    >Tools > Account Settings...
  2. E-mail Accounts
    Click the 'New' button under the 'Email' tab.
  3. 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'.


  4. Choose E-mail Service
    Choose the E-mail Service: Put a dot in 'Internet Email'.
  5. Make sure that your settings look like the settings shown in this screenshot.
    The following are the most important:
    Your Name: Your Name (eg. John Smith)
    E-mail Address: email@domain.tld (eg. john@test.com
    Incoming mail server (IMAP): mail.domain.tld (eg. mail.test.com)
    Outgoing mail server (SMTP): mail.domain.tld (eg. mail.test.com)
    User Name: email.domain.tld (eg. john.test.com NOT john@test.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.
  6. Internet E-mail Settings
    Click the 'Outgoing Server' tab at the top of the screen.
  7. 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'.
  8. Advanced
    Click on the 'Advanced' tab at the top
    make sure that the incoming server is 143 and the outgoing server 587.
  9. Click the 'OK', 'Next' and then 'Finish' buttons and now you should be able to send and receive email.
