Configuring Windows Outlook Express and Incredimail for MAINNOTE: after configuring your email program, you are able to compose emails to send and can read emails that you have already downloaded even when you are not connected to the internet. You only need to connect to send new messages or receive new messages. In order to do this, all you have to do when it wants to connect is to click on "Work Offline" , click the Cancel button or something similar.
NOTE: If you are asked for the Display Name, skip to #2. Otherwise:
The first window is for your Display Name. Type in the name you normally call yourself, or you would like to be printed before your e-mail address on outgoing mail. (There are no wrong answers, nothing here will stop you from sending or receiving mail.)
When done typing, hit NEXT> at the bottom of the window. Now enter your E-mail address. This must be exactly as it appears on your MAIN User Reference sheet. Make sure you type this in lower case letters. Then hit NEXT>.
Now you will be prompted for your mail server type This is in the TOP box. Leave this alone, it should read POP3. Below this, you will be asked to supply the name of your Incoming Mail (POP3 or IMAP) Server. Type the name of your incoming mail server on your User Reference sheet. Below this, enter your Outgoing(SMTP) Server. This will also be on your User Reference sheet, and should be the same as your incoming server. When finished, hit NEXT>.
Type your Username where asked for your POP Account Name, and Password where asked for it (from your User Reference Sheet or Data.) Uncheck Log on Using Secure Password Authentication at the bottom if it is checked - if it has a black dot, click the circle next to Log on Using at the top so it is chosen (dotted) instead. When done, click NEXT>. If you have a FINISH button, click it and skip to the Congratulations section below.
If you are not asked for a Friendly Name for your account, please skip to the next step. Once again, this is just for your preference, so you can enter whatever you would like, and hit NEXT>.
If you are not asked how you would like to connect to your mail server, skip to the final step; otherwise choose Connect using my Phone line, and hit NEXT>.
Your computer will now ask which Dial-Up networking connection you want to use to get your mail. Choose Use an existing dial up connection, and make sure MAIN is chosen on the list below. (It is chosen if the blue bar is covering it, and the letters are white, instead of black letters, and a white background) Hit NEXT>.
Congratulations, all that is left is to pat yourself on the back, and hit FINISH, then Close.
