Setting Up Outlook and Apple Mail in Signature




Your Webmail feature provides you with an easy interface through which you can retrieve your messages. Your hosting account supports Microsoft Outlook, Outlook Express, and the Macintosh OSX version of Apple Mail. You can configure these supported programs to retrieve and send mail through your account using either POP or IMAP.

Depending on which version of an email client you are using, actual configuration steps may vary.

To access your email settings you will need, log into your Control Panel, and then click Profile and Usage Summary, or select Preferences and Settings-Profile and Usage Summary. Your Profile and Usage Summary window appears.

You will require the following information from the Profile and Usage Summary window to set up a third-party email client:

  • Your User ID.

  • The domain name associated with this account.

  • Your incoming and outgoing Mail Server names. These two names should be the same.

To set up Outlook to retrieve your Control Panel mail:

  1. Open Outlook.

  2. Select Tools-Email Accounts. The E-mail Accounts pop up window appears.

  3. Select Add a new e-mail account.

  4. Click Next. The E-mail Accounts-Server Type pop up window appears.

  5. Select POP3.

  6. Click Next. The E-mail Accounts-Internet E-mail Settings window appears.

  7. If you are setting up Outlook using the profile of a user you created, the User ID, Password, and Name fields need to apply to that user; but the mail server names remain the same.
  8. Type the name you want to appear in the email header records in the Your Name: field.

  10. Type your incoming and outgoing Mail Server names in the appropriate fields. Or, copy the names from your Profile and Usage Summary window.

  11. Type your (or the user you created) Control Panel User Name and Password in the appropriate fields.

  12. Select Remember Password.

  13. Click Test Account Settings.... The Test Account Settings pop up window appears, with a confirmation message. If you get an error message at this point, read the message, make the appropriate changes, and try again.

  14. If the test was successful, click Close. The window disappears, and you can view your Internet E-mail Settings window.

  15. Click More Settings.... The Internet E-mail Settings pop-up window appears.

  16. Type a new mail account name in the Mail Account field, if you want. Or you can leave the default name (the mail server ID).
