To Set Up Your E-mail Account in Microsoft Outlook 2007

  • Please enter your information as follows:
Your Name
Enter your first and last name.
E-mail Address
Enter your complete e-mail address. Example -
Account Type
          Choose POP3
Incoming mail server (POP3)
Your incoming server is
Outgoing mail server (SMTP)
Your outgoing server is
User Name
Enter your complete e-mail address. Example -
Enter the password assigned to your e-mail account.
There should be a check in the Remember password checkbox.
There should not be a check in the Secure Password Authentication checkbox.
Do Not click the Test Account Settings button.

Click "More Settings." A new window will open with 4 tabs.

  • On the Outgoing server tab click the checkbox for "My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication".

    There should be a dot next to "Use same settings as my incoming mail server". Click the Advanced tab.

  • On the Advanced tab make sure there is not a check in either of the "This server requires an encripted connection (SSL)" checkboxes.

    Under Delivery there is a checkbox to "leave a copy of messages on server". If you plan to get your mail using another pop client (such as a cell phone/PDA or an additional computer with outlook), you will want to check this box. If you do check this box, you must check the 2 boxes below it and set the days to 30. This leaves 30 days worth of your mail on the server and allows both of your mail clients to get it and allows you to use the web based mail.

    The Incoming server (POP3) port should be 110 and should never be changed.

  • The Outgoing server (SMTP) port is set by default to 25. You must change this port number to 587 to send email. If your network has a hardware firewall in place or you have a 3rd party software firewall, you may have to consult with your IT administrator to have this port opened for you.

  • Click OK, Click Next, Click Finish.

  • Click New to create a new email message. Enter your email address as the recipient, type test in the subject line and in the body. You may now click Send. Wait 1 minute and click your Send/Receive button if your message has not been delivered to your inbox. If you do not get your message after 5 minutes, please re-check all of your settings and contact our support staff at 910-575-6095 x5.
