How to Setup your E-mail Account - Microsoft Office Outlook 2010

This document will show you how to configure Outlook 2010 to be able to send and receive your e-mail.

1 - If you’ve never used Outlook before, it will prompt you to create a new account. In that case, skip ahead to Step 2 to start setting up your account.

If you’ve previously used Outlook and it doesn’t prompt you, click the File tab, then the Add Account button

2 - The “Auto Account Setup” screen appears.

Check the box that says 'Manually configure server settings or additional server types' at the bottom of the screem and click Next.

3 - Select the first option, 'Internet E-mail', then click Next.

4. You should now be on a screen called Internet E-mail Settings like this one:

Under User Information:

Under Server Information

Under Logon Information:

5 - Do not click Next right away, instead, click the More Settings button in the lower right-hand corner. This should pop up the following window:

Go to the 2nd tab called Outgoing Server,
check the box at the top that says My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication,
select the 1st radio button called Use same settings as my incoming mail server.
do NOT check the box that says Log on using secure password authentication (SPA)

When you're done, click OK to confirm the changes.
This will take you back to the Internet E-mail Settings (POP3) window.

From there, you can click Next and then Finish to finish creating your account.

Congratulations, you are now ready to send and receive your e-mail!
