E-mail Accounts

4.1. How Do I Add a New POP3 or IMAP E-mail Account to Outlook?

Assuming a non–Microsoft Exchange setup, the type of e-mail account that you'll create most regularly is a POP3 account. Here are instructions for creating both POP3 and IMAP e-mail account types:

1.
From the Tools menu, select E-mail Accounts to display the E-mail Accounts dialog box.

2.
In the E-mail section, select the Add new e-mail account option and click the Next button.

3.
Select the type of e-mail account that you want to add, either POP3 or IMAP, and click the Next button to display a dialog box similar to the one shown in Figure 4-1.

4.
When the Internet E-mail Settings dialog box is displayed, simply fill in the details for your particular e-mail account. If you need to configure detailed information such as login details for your outgoing mail server or port numbers for the mail accounts, you can do so by clicking on the More Settings button. This displays the Internet E-mail Settings dialog box.

5.
When you've finished configuring your e-mail account, click Next and then click Finish.
