Before you set up a mail account, you must have the following information:
your user name
your email address
the incoming and outgoing mail server names
the incoming server type (IMAP or POP)
To set up a new mail or newsgroup account, begin from the Mail window:
Open the Edit menu and choose Mail & Newsgroups Account Settings. You see the Mail & Newsgroups Account Settings dialog box.
Click Add Account to start the Account Wizard.
The information requested by the Account Wizard depends on the type of new account you specify in its first window. The boldface headings that follow correspond to the windows you’ll see when you’re setting up an ISP or email provider account.
New Account Setup: Choose the type of account you want to set up, then click Next.
Identity: Enter the name and email address appropriate for this account, then click Next.
Server Information: Indicate whether you want a POP account or an IMAP account. Not all service providers can support both options.
You must also provide the name of your incoming mail server and your outgoing (SMTP) server here. This is the name of the mail server that sends your messages (also known as the SMTP host). Click Next to continue.
You can use [ mail.yourdomainname.ext ] as your Incoming / Outgoing Mail Server
You can also use your ISP’s SMTP Address in Outgoing Mail Server
Note: You need to specify only one outgoing mail server (SMTP), even if you have several mail accounts. The name of your SMTP host may not have been explicitly listed in the account setup information provided to you.
User Name: Enter the user name, then click Next.
Account Name: Enter whatever name you want to use to refer to this account, then click Next.
Congratulations! Verify that the information you entered is correct. If necessary, verify the information you entered. When you are sure that it’s correct, click Finish to set up your account.
You see your new account listed in the left side of the Mail & Newsgroups Account Settings dialog box. Click OK to start using your new account.
