1) Microsoft Outlook 2007   ( Note : For other versions, the procedure is almost similar )

In Microsoft Outlook 2007, from the Tools menu, select Account Settings.

On the E-mail tab, click New.

Select Microsoft Exchange, POP3, IMAP, or HTTP and click Next.

Check Manually configure server settings or additional server types and click Next.

Select Internet E-mail and click Next.

Enter the requested information:
  • Your Name: your name
  • Email Address: the email address the messages will be sent from
  • Account Type: POP3
  • Incoming Mail server:  ( replace with your actual domain name )
  • Outgoing Mail server:  ( replace with your actual domain name )
  • User Name: the full email address  Ex:
  • Password: the password for the email address

Click More Settings.

On the Outgoing Server tab, check My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication.

Select Use same settings as my incoming mail server and click OK.

Click Test Account Settings to verify everything is configured correctly.

Click Next and then click Finish.

2) Outlook Express

In Outlook Express, from the Tools menu, select Accounts...



A box will appear. Click Add and select Mail.


 Enter your name as you want it to appear on your emails and click Next.


Put in your email address, and then click Next.



Set the server type as POP3.

For incoming and outgoing mail servers, enter (replace with your actual domain name).




Click on Next.


Enter your email address for the Account Name. Enter the password you set for this account.
Note: Do NOT check the box "Log on using Secure Password Authentication".


Click Next and then click Finish. After you click Finish, you should see the following window. If not, go to the Tools menu, and click on Accounts. After clicking Accounts the window will appear. In this window, click on your domain until it is highlighted, then click on Properties.


When the next screen appears, click on the Servers tab. Under Outgoing Mail Server, check the box next to My server requires authentication. Click Okay.  

Note: You MUST do this step so you can send mail from your domain.


Now, you're ready to send and receive mail. To set up multiple email accounts, follow these steps again.
