Was this helpful? (8) (13)

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 up Windows 10 Mail (you can locate it by clicking the start button and typing in 'Mail'). If this is your first time using Windows 10, you will see the below window. Select the "Add Account" button.

If you have already setup an existing email in Windows 10 and want to setup a new one, then instead of the above screen you will see what is below. Select the cog icon to open the Settings sidebar, then select "Accounts". After that, select "Add Account".

 Step 2

Select the "Advanced set-up" option at the bottom. You may have to scroll to find this option at the bottom.


 Step 3

Select the "Internet Email" option.

   Step 4

Next fill in all your email account settings as per below. Once finished, click 'Sign In'.

Account Name: This is the name you wish to give your account for your reference only. For example, you could put your email address to help you identify it.
Your Name: The name you wish to appear when sending your recipients emails
Incoming Email Server: Your email account's incoming mail server. To find this, please refer to your Account Information by logging into hostControl.
Account Type: Select POP3 or IMAP4. If you are unsure which to choose, see the following Knowledge Base article link on Should I choose POP3 or IMAP?.
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'.
Outgoing (SMTP) Email Server: Your outgoing mail server will be the same as your incoming mail server. On the end of your outgoing mail server, add :26:1 (with 26 being the port number and 1 being secured SSL). For example:
Outgoing Server Requires Authentication:
Use same username and password sending email:
Require SSL for incoming email:
Require SSL for outgoing email:
Make sure all these boxes are checked


   Step 5

You will then see the below screen to say the setup was successful. Click 'Done' to finish and you can now begin using your email account in Windows 10 Mail.
