  • Yes, you can set up your email in Outlook 2010. Here are the steps.

    If you have another version, click the link below for the version of Outlook you have. To find out which version you have, click the Help menu on the Outlook toolbar and click About.


    Note: If you're having problems sending email in Outlook, review the steps below to make sure all steps and settings match exactly.

    1. Open Outlook, click the File tab. Under Account Information, click Add Account.



    2. Click the Manually configure server settings or additional server types checkbox and then click Next.



    3. Click Internet E-mail and then click Next.


    4. Enter your User Information:

      • In the Your Name box, type your name the way that you want it to appear to other people.

      • In the E-mail Address box, type the complete email address. Make sure to include the user name, the @ symbol, and the domain name.


    5. Enter your Server Information:


    6. Note: IMAP accounts are the recommended option for customers that want to check email from multiple sources (home computer, work computer, mobile phone).
      • Select POP3 or IMAP for server type.

      • In the Incoming Mail Server field, enter mail.homesteadmail.com for POP3 or IMAP.

      • In the Outgoing Mail Server field, enter smtp.homesteadmail.com for POP3 or IMAP.


    7. Enter your Logon Information:

      • In the User Name field, enter your full email address.

      • In the Password field, enter the password for the account you want to access from Outlook.


      Tip: Click to select the Remember password checkbox. If you don't, you'll have to enter your password each time you want to do anything with your email in Outlook.

    8. Clear the Require logon using Secure Password Authentication checkbox.



    9. Click More settings. Then, click the Outgoing Server tab.

    10. Check the My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication checkbox. Select Use same settings as my incoming mail serverl

    11. Click the Advanced tab. You will see Server Port Numbers. The port numbers will depend on whether you are settings up an IMAP or POP3 account.

    12. IMAP Advanced Settings:
      • Incoming Server: 143

      • Use the following type of encrypted connection: None

      • Outgoing Server: 587

      • Use the following type of encrypted connection: None


      POP3 Advanced Settings:
      • Incoming Server: 110

      • This server requires an encrypted connection (SSL) must be unchecked.

      • Outgoing Server: 587

      • Use the following type of encrypted connection: None


    13. Click OK.

    14. Click Next and then click Finish.


    15. Important: If you don't complete the advanced settings, you'll see error message 550 #5.1.0 address reject.

    16. If you set up an IMAP account, in Outlook, click the Inbox for the IMAP account that contains a folder that you want to subscribe to or unsubscribe from.

      • In the Tools menu, click IMAP Folders and click Query.

      • In the Folders box, click the folder you want to subscribe to and click Subscribe.

      • Click Close to complete the set up.

      Note: To test the settings, send a message directly from Outlook.

      Hope that helps!

    18. My email client (Pegasus) does not support SPA (secure password authentication). I would like to use the smtp.homesteadmail.com server, but apparently cannot. Could I use my ISP's smtp server instead for my intuit-hosted domain's outgoing email?

    25. I'm having trouble trying to sync my Homestead email account to Outlook 2010. I've followed these steps as listed in the community forum to the 't' with no success.

      When I try manual config, after "Log onto incoming mail server (pop3)" and "Sending test email message" are completed, text at the top of that box says, "Congratluations! All tests have been completed successfully. Click Close to continue". But when I click "Close", I receive this prompt:

      "The requested operation has failed".

      Hi,
      I’m using Windows 7 and Office 365. When I set it up and do the test, the send doesn’t work, but when I try and get the emails to download the send has a green check mark and the receive fails with this message “The server responded 554 Sender IP address blocked (Error code ERR-365-IP).
      I had this email set up on my out computer and it worked fine. Can you please advise me on how I can correct this?
      Thanks for your anticipated help and time.
      Regards,
      Blaine

      • Angela, are you still employed by Homestead? Have you or anyone created a step-by-step process (like outlined above for Outlook 2010) for Outlook 2013? If so, could you post it?

        I would still like to get Outlook 2013 to talk with the Homestead server, even after giving up trying to do so 9 months ago after several days of trying. I was able to set up three other email accounts in Outlook 2013 without difficulty. It just doesn't want to sync/connect with the Homestead server (either incoming or outgoing).

        Regards,
        Jim Johnson

        Good morning. I will try to get these up today. I was working on the screen shots yesterday. I have setup both Zimbra and Open-Xchange accounts on 2013. We will only be posting Open-Xchange instructions, as Zimbra will soon be finished.

        Where are you running into the trouble?

    35. Angela,
      Can email folders created in webmail be transferred over to Outlook 2010? I started the outlook program on a new pc, entered the email address and Outlook automatically found the settings but only brought over the "Inbox" emails from webmail.
      Thanks!
      Mike

    37. I have been working on this every which way ALL week end. I'm trying to get my homestead mail to work with windows live 2010. You say it exactly the same directions as the outlook .Well I don't think so. I tried to do it that exact way it did not work.It will receive mail But, not send. this is what I get back as a error.
      The host 'stmp.homesteadmail.com' could not be found. Please verify that you have entered the server name correctly.

      Subject 'TEST #435'
      Server: 'stmp.homesteadmail.com'
      Windows Live Mail Error ID: 0x800CCC0D
      Protocol: SMTP
      Port: 587
      Secure(SSL): No
      Socket Error: 11001

      Whats the problem? Iv'e done this step by step and still cannot send.
      • Hi Steve this might work.

        Check you email settings.

        For POP3
        change the port to your incoming mail server from 110 to 995 and put a check in the box by use SSL

        This will fix the problem. Follow the other instruction for outlook off thier website and just make this small change.

        If your using IMAP
        993 enable SSL

        This is working for a temp solution might need to go back later to original settings.
      • Also on my outlook that works outgoing server port 587 I have SSL checked not unchecked.

    47. I’m baffled by Intuits lack of communication
      It's come to my attention that most of the Outlook email problems are due to an encryption setting in Outlook and not the ports. I'm guessing this is due to a change from Homestead mail because of the hacking/blacklist problem? Would have loved to know this earlier Intuit!

      WHAT THE HECK IS GOING ON...NOW!!!! 3 issues....


      1) Hello, so the drama of the age old email issues are STILL going on! WHY? It is has been months that we are getting spam, can not send emails, getting duplicates and the storage of the email we have allowed on our account is seriously not enough when all of a sudden the proof for the marketing materials is finally coming through and you think we have the time for the 50 emails within minutes?? Seriously this is out of control we need answers and we need them NOW!

      2) How do you set up the emails to go through to Outlook 2010? You have for up to Outlook 2008 and nothing higher. Can we have emails pointing to the 2010 suites?

      3) how do I set up the storefront on my website so that it accepts paypal and uploads, drop down menus in order to have the client purchase multiple services. We do not have items to sell, only services.

      Thank you....

      IMPORTANT

      Before proceeding, you'll need to check and see if your account was converted to our new email platform (Open-Xchange), as the configurations are slightly different.
