1) After launched Outlook Express, click "Tools" button, and then click "Accounts".

2) In the pop up "Internet Accounts" dialogue box, click the "Mail" tab, and then click the "Add" button, select "Mail" (Figure 1-1).

10) In the pop up "mail.youngzsoft.com" dialogue box, modify the account name of "Incoming Mail Server", it should be: account name + "#" + incoming mail server address, then select the "My server requires authentication" check box, then click the "Settings" button (Figure 1-8).

Notes:

Different mail accounts have different pop3 and smtp addresses. Here are some frequently used pop3 and smtp address:

QQ Mail

pop3 Address: pop.qq.com

smtp Address: smtp.qq.com

163 Mail

pop3 Address: pop.163.com

smtp Address: smtp.163.com

Sina Mail

pop3 Address: pop.sina.com

smtp Address: smtp.sina.com

Change Accounts Properties

If your pop3 address is "mail.test.com" and account is "user" when you receive/send e-mails on the website, you should input "user#mail.test.com".

If your pop3 address is "pop3.test.com" and account is "user@test.com" when you receive/send e-mails on the website, you should input "user@test.com#pop3.test.com".

11) The configuration rules of outgoing mail server is almost the same with the incoming mail server, you just need to notice that you should input the smtp server address behind "#", such as "smtp.domain.com", "main.domain.com" (Figure 1-9).

Configure Outgoing Mail Server

Figure 1‑9

If your smtp address is "mail.test.com" and account is "user" when you receive/send e-mails on the website, you should input "user#mail.test.com".

If your smtp address is "smtp.test.com" and account is "user@test.com" when you receive/send e-mails on the website, you should input "user@test.com#smtp.test.com".

12) After the configuration is done, click the "Send/Recv" button to test whether outlook express could send/receive e-mails or not (Figure 1-10).
