How To Set Up Outlook Mail
To learn how to set up Outlook Mail, you will need to know a few things from your Internet Service Provider (ISP). If you have several email addresses, Microsoft Outlook can be used to receive and send all mail from one location. To set up Outlook mail, you must correctly configure the Internet E-mail information service to send and receive messages in Outlook. Use this handy list to find the information to set up your Outlook Mail:
- Your full e-mail address.
- The type of e-mail account: POP3, IMAP or HTTP.
- Your user name.
- Your password.
- Once you have collected the necessary information, start Outlook. On the Tools Menu, click “Account Settings.” On the e-mail tab, click “New.”
- The "Add New E-Mail Account" dialog box will open. In the “Your Name” box, type in your full name.
- In the "E-mail Address" box, type in your e-mail address provided by your Internet Service Provider.
- In the "Password" box, type the password your ISP provided.
- Type the password a second time in the "Retype Password" box.
- Click "Next" and Microsoft Outlook will automatically configure your account settings and server settings.
- If your account is successfully configured, the "Add New E-mail Account" dialog box indicates that the account was created successfully. This dialog box also indicates the type of e-mail server to which you successfully connected.
- Select "Finish" and click to close the account setup.
Note: Outlook is not compatible with Yahoo’s free email addresses. You can, however, upgrade to one of Yahoo’s paid email accounts and then you can set up Outlook mail to work with your email address in Yahoo.
