How To Find Out What Version You Have
Open Outlook. Click on HELP. From the drop-down select "About Microsoft Office Outlook" and there you should find a statement about your version
outlook version check
IMPORTANT: Those of you who DO NOT have access to your hosting server control panel will need to let me know what email addresses you have selected to use so that I can set them on your server account.
  1. Open Microsoft Outlook Express , select Tools > Accounts.

  2. At the Internet Accounts box, click on the Mail tab.

  3. Click on Add button and select Mail.

  4. Enter your name as you want it to be displayed and click Next.

  5. Enter the email address and click Next.

  6. Your ISP will supply the Incoming mail POP3 settings and your Outgoing mail SMTP settings (ask me for yours).

    NOTE: If you are using WildwoodHosting.com then use the following settings:
    Incoming mail server (POP3) - mail.your domain name.com
    Outgoing mail server (SMTP) - mail.your domain name.com
    This outgoing SMTP does require authentification, however If you choose to not check it, normally everything will still work. What happens is that when you download email to your computer then you get listed in an approved list allowing them you send email for a short period of time. But when you have the box checked for outgoing server authentication they don’t have to download first before sending. The advantage of leaving it uncheced is not having to download mail before sending mail. The advantage to checking the box for authentification is that it makes it more difficult for a virus to use your mailbox to send spam.

    Wildwood Hosting clients also note that if you are using the default name for the mail account the username is the account username. But when you create additional mailboxes then you have to use the whole email address as the username.

    After entering these settings, click Next.
  7. Enter your account name and password as provided (ask me for yours). Optionally, you may check "Remember Password" to allow Windows to keep your password in memory. Click on Next.

  8. Click on finish.

  9. In the Internet Accounts box, select the Mail tab, click on to highlight the name of your email account and click the Properties button.

    In the Properties box click on the Connection tab and indicate your connection type.
    If I tell you that your outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication, then do the following:
    Click on the Servers tab and put a check by "The server requires authentication".
    Click on OK.

You will need to do the above for each of the email names you are using.
