CHAPTER 31. Using Outlook Express > Configuring Outlook Express

Configuring Outlook Express

Before you can use Outlook Express to send and receive email, you must supply some basic configuration information. At a minimum, you have to enter the name and type of the mail server that stores and forwards your messages, along with the username and email address associated with your mail account. Before you can access newsgroups with Outlook Express, you need to enter similar configuration information, including your username and email address as well as the name of the news server you plan to use.

The Internet Connection Wizard handles all Outlook Express setup details, although you can also configure accounts manually. If you did not use the wizard when you first set up Internet Explorer 5.0 (IE5) or if you skipped the mail and news steps, Outlook Express 5 allows you to add new accounts by choosing Tools, Accounts and then selecting the Add button. The Add button gives you a choice between adding a new Mail, News, or Directory Services Account through an Internet Connection Wizard specific to each function.
