Additional tips:

  • If you are unsure of your incoming or outgoing mail Server addresses, you can contact your email provider for assistance.
  • If you are using a POP3 account, you will need to configure Outlook to leave a copy of your emails on the Server. To do this, open Outlook and click the File tab. In the Info category, click Account Settings. In the Account Settings dialog box, select your POP3 account and click Change. In the Change Account dialog box, click More Settings. In the More Settings dialog box, click the Advanced tab. Under Delivery, select the Leave a copy of messages on the Server checkbox.
  • If you are using an IMAP account, Outlook will automatically keep a copy of your emails on the Server.
