How to configure Outlook 2003

Open Outlook 2003

If this is the first time
you open Outlook 2003 since its install, a window will immediately pop up asking you to setup your email account. Click yes and proceed. Now you will only need to read this tutorial from  here *

If this is not the first time you open Outlook 2003, no setup window will pop up.
To setup a new email account just click on Tools and select E-mail Accounts like in the following picture.

The E-mail Accounts wizard will open
Select Add a new e-mail account
Click Next

* A new window will open to select the Server Type
Select POP3
Click Next

A new window will open to setup your Internet Email Settings (POP3).


These are the most common settings BUT you should ONLY use the ones provided by your email provider.

Incoming server (POP3): mail.server.com | port 110 | No encrypted connection
But in it can also be mail.anotherserver.com | port 995 | encrypted connection: SSL

Outgoing server (SMTP): mail.server.com | port 587 | No encrypted connection
But in it can also be mail.anotherserver.com | port 465 | encrypted connection: SSL
Requires authentication with your username (your email) and password (provided by your email provider)

Never leave copies of messages in the server otherwise your server account will keep pilling up emails until its full, resulting in errors and preventing you from sending and recieving emails (and deleting them from your Outlook's inbox will make no difference)


Now imagine this is you:
Your name: Peter Smith
