How do I set up emails on Outlook Express?

Open Outlook Express and click Tools, Accounts and then click the Add tab in the top right of the window. Next click Mail

Put in your name in the resulting window. This can be anything you want. The click Next.

Put in your new email address in the next window and click Next.

Your incoming mail server (POP3) will be similar to pop.iwweb#.co.uk (you will be notified of this) and the outgoing mail server (SMTP) will depend on what ISP you use. To check your SMTP host go to this page - if you do not find your ISP in the list then contact your ISP. On some ISPs you can use smtp.iwweb#.co.uk instead, this must be authenticated with the same login details as the incoming mail server.

Click Next and then enter the user name and password for your email account. Tick the box that asks to remember password and leave the log on etc box unticked.

Click Next and then Finish. Your emails will be checked along with any other accounts you have.
