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 for Mac and Click the Tools tab. Next, select the Accounts button.


 Step 2


If this is your first email account being setup in Outlook for Mac, you will be taken to the below Accounts window. Select 'Other Email'. If you have existing accounts, select the "+" button on the bottom left corner and choose "Other Email".


 Step 3


Next fill in all your email account settings as per below. Once completed, select the "Add Account" button.

Email Address: The full email address you wish to setup. 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'.
User Name: Your username will be the same as your full email address. Eg. yourname@domainname.com.au.
Type: Select POP or IMAP. If you are unsure which to choose, see the following Knowledge Base article link on Should I choose POP3 or IMAP?.
Incoming Server: Your email account's incoming mail server. To find this, please refer to your Account Information by logging into hostControl.
Outgoing Server: Your outgoing mail server will be the same as your incoming mail server.
Outgoing Port Number: Check the box "Override deafult port" under outgoing server and type in 26.


   Step 4


You will then be brought back to the Accounts window. Enter in the name you wish to appear when you send recipients emails, in the "Full Name" field. You can also give your account a description, which is for your reference only. You can then click the x in the top left corner and begin using your email account.
