How do I configure email using Outlook express?




Your web hosting allows you to add a number of email addresses such as you@yourdomainname.com.

You can add these to your computer to access your emails.

You will need the following settings.

Incoming Mailserver is mail.yourdomainname.com
Outgoing Mailserver is mail.yourdomainname.com

Username is you@yourdomainname.com
Password is what you set when creating your email account

You have the choice of either using Imap or Pop, the choice is yours.

To setup Outlook Express to work with your PBP mail account please follow these instructions.

  1. Start Outlook Express and select the Tools menu. From here select 'Accounts'


  2. In the window that appears press the 'Add' button and then select 'Mail...'


  3. Enter your name as you would like it to appear to people who receive emails from you. Then click 'Next'.
