Chapter 26. Using Outlook Express for Em... > Configuring Internet Email Accounts

Configuring Internet Email Accounts

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. 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 5.5 (IE5.5) or if you skipped the mail and news steps, Outlook Express 5 enables 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.

Troubleshooting Tip

If you are having problems receiving or sending email with Outlook Express, see the Troubleshooting section at the end of this chapter.
