How to setup POP3/IMAP email account in Microsoft Office Outlook 2002 and 2003?

1. In MS Office Outlook, go to Tools / E-mail Accounts. Select "Add a new e-mail account" and click Next



2. Select POP3 or IMAP depending on your preference. Please refer to differences between POP3 and IMAP. Click Next



3. Key in your name and your email address. Under Server Information, key in your incoming and outgoing mail server, eg. mail.domain.com. Please note that your username is your full email address. Click on "More Settings..."



4. Go to Outgoing Server tab and tick "My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication". Use same settings as incoming mail server. Failure to change this will cause problems in sending out email.
