Please note this walkthrough have been provided only in order to assist you and is intended for use in conjunction with your computer and Outlook Express 6 Mail Setup.
Setting up a Mail Account
Click on Tools and choose Accounts.
Click on the Add button.
Then click on the Mail option. This will start the Internet Connection Wizard to set up your new email account.
Type your full name in the the text box and then click Next. (You might want to add your profession - for example I use "Dr Ian Smith - Internet Marketing Consultant")
Type your email address into the text box in the form email@example.com, this must all be in lower case.
In the Incoming mail (POP3.) field type the mail server for your mailbox. This might be something like mail.yourdomain.co.uk . This is the server through which you receive email.
However, you send mail through a different server, this is the server belonging to the company that provides you with your connection to the Internet (your "ISP" - it may be Freeserve, BT, Virgin etc). Therefore, in the Outgoing mail (SMTP) field you will need to enter your ISP's smtp server details which will have been given to you (and can be obtained from) your ISP. (It will be something like smtp.btinternet.com etc depending on who you connect to the internet with).
Then click Next.
In the Account Name field type your account username.
In the Password field type your password.
If you do not wish to type in your password every time you check your mail, click in the box to Remember password.
You have now completed setting up your email account.
Click on Close in the Internet Accounts window.
Now you can click Send & Receive emails using your new account.
