Before you begin

You will need to have your Email Account, Password, Incoming Mail Server and Outgoing Mail Server information. To find this, log into your account via hostControl:
https://secure.hostcontrol.com.au (If you are unsure of your login details, select the 'Forgotten Password' button).

Once in hostControl, browse to the "Email Accounts" section, find the email account you wish to setup and select the 'Connect Info' link to the right. This will show your email's username, password, incoming mail server, outgoing mail server and port number. Keep this information handy and proceed to Step 1.


 Step 1


 Open Outlook 2013 and Click the File Menu. Next, select the Add Account button.


 Step 2


In the Add Account window that appears, select the "Manual setup or additional server types" option and choose Next.

 


 Step 3


Select the "POP or IMAP" option and then choose Next.


   Step 4


 Next fill in all your email account settings as per below:

Your Name: The name you wish to appear when sending your recipients emails
Email Address: The full email address you wish to setup. Eg. yourname@domainname.com.au
Account Type: Select POP3 or IMAP. If you are unsure which to choose, see the following Knowledge Base article link on Should I choose POP3 or IMAP?.
Incoming Mail Server: Your email account's incoming mail server. To find this, please refer to your Account Information by logging into hostControl.
Outgoing Mail Server: Your outgoing mail server will be the same as your incoming mail server.
Username: Your username will be the same as your full email address. Eg. yourname@domainname.com.au.
Password: Your Email Account's Password. If you are unsure, visit the "Email Accounts" section of hostControl and click 'Display Passwords'.

Before proceeding, select the "More Settings" button in the bottom right hand corner of the window.


   Step 5


Next select the "Outgoing Server" tab. Check the box 'My Outgoing Server Requires Authentication', which should also select 'Use same settings as my incoming server'.

In the same window, go across to the "Advanced" tab. Under the Server Port Numbers section change the "Outgoing server (SMTP)" port number to 26. Do not change the incoming port number.

Click OK to save these settings and go back to the original settings window.


   Step 6


Select the 'Next' button in the email settings window to test and complete setup. If you see two green ticks it means that it has successfully tested receiving and sending. Click close on the Test Account Settings window and then Finish. You are now ready to use your email account in Outlook.
