If you aren't sure of the difference between POP and IMAP and why you would use one or the other, please click here.

1) Click on File, and then on Account Settings and again on Account settings.

2) On the Email tab, click on New


3) Choose Email Account and then Next


4) Click on Manually Configure and then Next


5) Choose Internet Email and Next.


6) Enter your name and email address in the User information. Enter the servers as shown and then your email address and password in the Logon Information.
If you are not clear if yuo should choose a new or existing data file, then please refer to this Microsoft Knowledge Base article.  If you need more information about the data file, please contact Microsoft support.
Click on More settings.


7) One the Outgoing server tab, check the indicated box, and click OK.


8) On the Advanced tab set the port to 587(25 also works, but many ISPs block port 25). Click OK


9) Click Next


10) Both checks should be green. Click Close.
