Outlook 2010: Setting up Email


It takes about 5 minutes to set up your email in Outlook® 2010. These steps work for most of our customers, but you may need to make additional changes depending on where you live and which ISP(s) you use.

BEFORE YOU START: To set up Outlook with your email, you need to know your POP or IMAP Email Server Settings and ports. To find them, go to the InfoCenter and write down the information that displays under Email Server Settings.

To Manually Set up Email in Outlook 2010

    1. Open Microsoft Outlook 2010. Click File and Add Account.
    2. At the bottom, select Manually configure server settings or additional server types and click Next.
    3. Select Internet Email and click Next.
    4. Enter Your Name and full Email Address.
    5. If you have IMAP, select IMAP for your Account Type. If you are not sure, select POP3. Use these settings for your incoming and outgoing servers, depending on the type of email you have:
      POP3
      Incoming mail server pop.secureserver.net
      Outgoing mail server (SMTP) smtpout.secureserver.net

       

      IMAP
      Incoming mail server imap.secureserver.net
      Outgoing mail server (SMTP) smtpout.secureserver.net
    6. Enter your User Name (your full email address) and Password and select Remember password.
    7. Click More Settings.
    8. Click the Outgoing Server tab. Select My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication and Use same settings as my incoming mail server. Select the Advanced tab.
    9. Next to Outgoing Server (SMTP), type 80. Then click OK.
    10. Click Next.
    11. Outlook 2010 will test your settings. When it is complete, click Close.
    12. Click Finish.

If everything is working properly, you should see some email messages. If you do not, press the F9 key on your computer.
