How To Use Microsoft Outlook Express With Your Email

Microsoft Outlook Express can be termed as an e-mail and news client that is associated with Internet Explorer. The striking feature of Outlook Express is that it uses the Windows Address Books to store the contact information. Most of us use our Workspace Webmail to send and receive email messages. However, we tend to forget the fact that we can also view our email with an e-mail client. One needs to add an account with the Microsoft Outlook Express to access your e-mails through it.
Before setting up the Outlook Express with the personal email, the user must know about the POP or IMAP E-mail server settings and ports. For this, you can go to the InfoCenter and make a note of the information that appears under the Email Server Settings. You can also contact the Outlook Express help for more information.
The following steps would help you to use Microsoft Outlook Express with your email:
  • Go to Microsoft Outlook Express. Now, select Tools and then select the Accounts option.
  • Now, you would see the Internet Accounts window where you can select the Mail tab and click Add. A list of options would be displayed wherein you can select Mail.
  • Once, it is selected you can enter your name in the Display name filed on the Internet Connect Wizard window. Make sure you enter your name that you would like to appear on your e-mail.
  • Now, in the e-mail address field you can enter your e-mail address and click Next.
  • A list would appear on the My incoming mail server on the E-mail Server Names window. The incoming mail server should be selected as IMAP or POP3.
  • Also, select IMAP or POP3 for your account type. Depending on the type of e-mail you have, you can use these settings for your incoming and outgoing mail servers. At any point of time, you can also contact the Outlook Express help support to clear your queries.
  • Now, enter your e-mail and password in the Account name and Password fields. Click Next.
  • Select Finish. Now, you can select the account you just created on the Internet Accounts Wizard and click Properties.
  • Here, click the Servers tab, and select the option My Server requires authentication. Make sure that you have selected the same settings as My incoming mail server is selected.
  • Now, click the Advanced tab and check the Outgoing server settings as well as the Incoming server settings.
  • Click OK.
Therefore, by following these steps you can use your own e-mail with the Microsoft Outlook Express. You can also contact the Microsoft support team for more help.
