Email Client Configuration

Outlook 2010 is exactly the same as other versions of Outlook, but finding the settings is slightly different. Just go to File > Info > Account Settings. Next, under the Email tab, you can choose New or Change.


Email settings for any Email Client except Mac Mail (Outlook, Eudora, iPad, etc.):

Be sure to replace yourdomain.com with your actual domain name.

Your/Display name: anything you want
Email address: enter the full address ([email protected])

Type of connection: POP3 or IMAP (what is the difference?)

Incoming mail server: mail.yourdomain.com
Outgoing mail server: mail.yourdomain.com
Outgoing mail server does require authentication.

Incoming mail port: 110 for POP3, 143 for IMAP
Outgoing mail port: 25 (If 25 does not work, try 26, as some ISPs block port 25)

** No SSL boxes should be checked **
Note: If you want a secure connection using SSL, please refer to the related article.

Username/Account name: must be the full email address ([email protected]).
Sometimes this setting won't work until you replace the @ with a + in the username.

Password: the email password. Do NOT use SPA (secure password authentication).


Warning for iPad users:
 If you have already setup your email incorrectly, you cannot simply update the settings to be correct. Instead, you need to fully delete the account from the iPad, perform a hard reset, and recreate the entire account with the proper settings.
