  • In the DISPLAY NAME field enter your name as your would like it to appear in the "from" section of emails.
  • Click NEXT
  • In the EMAILADDRESS field enter your email address (for example: me@mydomain.com)
  • Click NEXT
  • My incoming mail server is a [POP3] server.
  • Incoming Mail server is your domain name (for example: mydomain.com )
  • Outgoing mail: it is recommended that you enter the SMTP settings that your ISP gave you. As an alternative, you can insteadenter your domain name in this field.
  • For account name most people enter their email address.
  • Enter the password you have chosen when you setup the email account in Cpanel or Plesk.
  • Make sure "log on with secure password authentication" is NOT checked.
  • Click NEXT and then FINISHED
  • Click PROPERTIES and then the SERVERS tab.
  • if you are using your ISP as your outgoing (SMTP) server (see above) contact your ISP for the settings of this tab.
  • if you are using yourdomain as your outgoing (SMTP) server (see above) make sure that "MY SERVER REQUIRES AUTHENTICATION" is checked.
