How to setup an Email Account in Outlook 2007.

NOTE: There are several versions of Outlook. Make sure which version you are using, as they are all a little different.

For the purposes of this tutorial, we will assume that you have already gone to your cPanel and created a new email account. If you don't know how to do this, please see the tutorial called How to Create a POP EMail Account

From Outlook 2007, you will see a top menu bar. Click on the Tools link. This will produce a drop-down menu, and you need to click on the link called Account Settings.

The Email Accounts window will now appear. At the top, click on the New button. This takes you to the Auto Account Setup window.

Check the "Manually configure server settings or additional server types" box, then click "next" This will open the Account Settings window

In the first box, Enter the Name as you would like it to appear in the FROM field of Outgoing emails. In the next box, enter your full complete new email address. The next two boxes are for your email password, to enter it once, and then to confirm it. Check the box at the bottom of the page to Manually configure server settings. Now click Next. On the next screen you will be asked to Choose Email Service. Make sure that Internet Email is selected, and select the Next button at the bottom of the page. This will take you to the Internet Email Settings window.

Under the section called Server Information, select POP3 for your account type. In the first box, enter your Incoming (POP3) server setting, and in the second box enter your Outgoing (SMTP) server setting.

Note: Your Mail Server setting were provided to you in your welcome email. (Example: garfield.fatcatservers.com).

In the section called Logon Information, enter your User Name. This is your full email address. In the final box, enter your email password for this account. Now click the More Settings button. This takes you to the Internet Email Settings window.

Click on the Outgoing Server Tab. Check the box that says My outgoing server requires authentication. SMTP Authentication means that Outlook will logon to your mail server when sending email as well as when receiving to make sure that you are the only one that can send email from your account. Click the radio button that says "Use same settings as my incoming mail server". Then click OK.

Click on the Advanced Settings Tab. Check the box that says " This server requires an encrypted connection(SSL)". Change "Outgoing Server (SMTP)" to 26. NOTE: FatCat Servers does support port 25, however most ISP's block this port. Select "TLS" or "Auto" from the "Use the following type of encrypted cnnection" drop-down

You are now ready to start sending and receiving emails from Outlook 2007. Just remember that you must always first create your accounts in your hosting cPanel, or they will not work! This is the end of this tutorial.
