Please Note: This guide has been created using screenshots from Microsoft Outlook XP – if you are using a different version you may have some differences.
Within Outlook go to the file menu and select ‘Tools’ and then ‘Email Accounts’
Select ‘add new email account’ and select type ‘POP3’. You will be presented with the following fields to fill in:
This is the name that will be displayed when sending your email
The email address people will reply to when receiving your email
The login you were provided by your host / email provider
with Glassraven email accounts this is your email address name eg: [email protected] – the login would be ‘name+yourdomain.com’
As assigned by your email provider
Incoming Server (POP3) & Outgoing Server (SMTP)
With Glassraven email accounts these values are both in the format mail.yourdomain.com
When setting up Outlook to receive emails through a Glassraven hosted email address select the ‘more settings’ (in some versions this is ‘advanced settings’), and tick the box stating ‘my outgoing SMTP server requires authentication’, and ‘use the same settings as my incoming mail server’. Please ensure you only tick the box for outgoing mail.
And thats it – you should be ready to go!
If you are setting up a Glassraven hosted email address and have any queries at all in the setup process please do contact us and we will do our utmost to guide you through the setup.
Take a look at our web hosting packages – we offer a minimum of 3 POP3 email accounts as standard with all our hosting packages.
Please Note: The above article is intended as a guide to the setup process, we cannot offer support to email accounts provided by other hosts or ISPs.
