Hello everyone! Today we are going to discuss how to set up a POP3/IMAP account using Microsoft Outlook 2013. There are a few things that you will need for this:
1. Email address
2. Username and Password
3. Incoming Mail server
4. Outgoing Mail server
5. Incoming Server Type
6. Ports to be use for connecting to the server.
After you get these things we are going to set up your account.
Bring up Microsoft Outlook 2013 and in the top tool bar to the left you will click File and a menu will come up like so:
You’re going to click Account settings a little drop down box will appear and you will click that. You will then see the following window:
After you click new you will see the following screen:
You will see two options here. Select E-mail Account and click next and you will see the following screen:
On this screen you’re going to input your email account information. So your user name or how you want it to be viewed (IE. John Doe), your email address and password for that email address. However the important part is setting up Manual settings or additional server type so go ahead and click that and you will see this page:
You will click POP or IMAP and then select next and you will see this screen:
This is the account settings page. You will put in your user name and email address.
Then you will be asked for your account type. It’s either POP or IMAP. We are going to do POP first. Then you will enter your Incoming mail server address and our outgoing mail server address. After you do that you will move to User Name and password field after you do that we need to edit your ports so go ahead and click More settings like so:
After you click this you will see this window:
You will then click Outgoing Server once you click that you will see this window:
You will select “My outgoing server (SMTP) Requires authentication” and you will select “Use same settings as my incoming mail server” after you do this click Advanced at the top and you will see this window:
