How to set up email in Outlook 2003

This tutorial shows you how to set up Microsoft Outlook 2003 to work with your e-mail account. This tutorial focuses on setting up Microsoft Outlook 2003, but these settings are similar in other versions of Microsoft Outlook. You can set up previous versions of Microsoft Outlook by using the settings in this tutorial.

To Set Up Your E-mail Account in Microsoft Outlook

1. In Microsoft Outlook, from the E-mail Accounts menu, select Tools.

4. On the Internet E-mail Settings (POP3/IMAP) window, enter your information as follows:

Your Name
Your first and last name.

E-mail Address
Your email address.

User Name
Your email address, again.

Password
Your email account password that has been provided to you.

Incoming mail server (POP3)
POP, Pop.yourdomainname.com. If your domain name is widgets.com, your pop would be pop.widgets.com. Replace “yourdomainname” with your actual domain name.

Outgoing mail server (SMTP)
Your SMTP works  best if you use the one that has been provided to you by your Internet Service Provider.

Here are some common ones:

Comcast: smtp.comcast.net
Bellsouth: smtp.bellsouth.net
If yours isn’t one of the above, please go read “What is my SMPT” for a list of common smtps.

Click More Settings.

5. On the Internet E-mail Settings window, go to the Outgoing Server tab.

Your ISP (Comcast, Bellsouth, AT&T) may require you to have authentication. They really like for you to use their smtp and not the one associated with your custom domain name. You can try sending mail without it. If you get an error, you probably need to authenticate your SMTP.

Select My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication. The user name and password are the ones associated with your ISP account (becky123@comcast.net or danfishes@bellsouth.net). This is not the user and password associated with a domain I set up for you.
