Setting up your email on Microsoft Outlook 2010 is super easy and will not take you more than 5 minutes. So let's do it:

  1. If you have opened Microsoft Outlook 2007 for the first time, skip the initial wizard

  2. Click on the File menu

  3. Click on the Info tab

  4. Click on Account Settings

    Outlook 2010
  5. In the 'Email' tab, click on New

  8. Select the default Email service "Internet E-mail" and click on Next

    Outlook 2010
  9. Enter your Name, Email Address in User Information

  10. Select Account Type as POP or IMAP. We'd suggest you using POP. It keeps a copy of your email on your computer so that view it even if you are offline

  11. Enter the Incoming mail server as pop.yourdomain.com (‘imap.yourdomain.com’ if you are using IMAP)

    Note:
    If you have a Linux Hosting package, set the Incoming mail server to mail.yourdomain.com
    If you have a Windows Hosting package, set the Incoming mail server to yourdomain.com

  12. Enter the Outgoing mail server as smtp.yourdomain.com

    Note:
    If you have a Linux Hosting package, set the Outgoing mail server to mail.yourdomain.com
    If you have a Windows Hosting package, set the Outgoing mail server to yourdomain.com
  1. Click on More Settings button

    Outlook 2010
  2. Click on Outgoing Server tab

  3. Tick "My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication"

    Outlook 2010
  4. Click on the Advanced tab

  5. Enter the port numbers as following:

Incoming server (POP3) - 110   |   (IMAP) - 143
Outgoing server SMTP - 587

  1. Tick on the option "Leave a copy of messages on the server". This will ensure that a copy of your email is stored on our servers even after it gets downloaded to your Outlook.

  2. Click on OK

    Outlook 2010
  3. Click on Next

    Outlook 2010
  1. Click on Finish

    Outlook 2010

That’s it. You are all set to use your email account on your Outlook 2010.
