Chapter 7. E-Mail Made Easy > Setting Up Your E-Mail Accounts

Setting Up Your E-Mail Accounts

When you move into a new neighborhood, you must notify the post office that you’ve moved in and tell them you’re ready to have your mail delivered. When you set up a new computer, you go through the same process with Outlook Express. The difference is that Outlook Express allows you to have an unlimited number of e-mail addresses and have mail from all these addresses delivered into your Outlook Express Inbox. In this section, you learn how to set up each of several common types of e-mail accounts.

Set Up Internet E-Mail (SMTP/POP3)

Most Internet service providers (ISPs) include one or more e-mail accounts as part of their service agreement. If you have a dial-up account with your local phone company or with a nationwide ISP such as Earthlink or AT&T, you get e-mail with the package. If you sign up for a high-speed Internet account with your cable company or get digital subscriber line (DSL) service from your phone company, they give you an e-mail address too. Most of the time, having this type of Internet e-mail account means that you send and receive e-mail using two types of servers: an SMTP server for your outgoing mail and a POP3 server for your incoming mail.
