Configuring Outlook Express

These instructions are based on the Outlook Express 4.0. They may be different for older and/or newer versions; however the concept is the same.

Before getting started you will need to know the following:
  1. Outgoing mail (SMTP) server name(Example: smtp.myisp.com)
  2. Account name on our servers (Example: abc1)
  3. Password for account
Item #1 can be found by either asking your service provider or possibly by checking your current settings as follows:
  1. Go into your Outlook Express program
  2. Under the Tool menu choose Accounts
  3. Choose Properties
  4. Select Servers
  5. Write down the server name (or number) that is in the "outgoing mail (SMTP)" field
Items #2 and #3 should have been provided to you from someone here at Green Bridge Station. If you do not have this information or you do not know how to retrieve it please call our office.

Once you have the above information:
  1. Go into your Outlook Express program
  2. Under the Tool menu choose Accounts
  3. Choose Add
  4. Choose Mail
  5. Enter the display name (Example: Sales Department)
  6. Enter the friendly email address (Example: joe@your-domain-name.com)
  7. Enter the following:
    Server Type Incoming Server Outgoing Server
    POP3 pop3.myisp.com Provided by your ISP
  8. Enter the POP account name (Example: joe@your-domain-name.com)

  10. DO NOT SELECT "Log on using SPA"
  11. Enter the mail account name (Example: joe@your-domain-name.com)
