Microsoft Outlook 2002:

Select from the menu ‘Tools’ and then ‘Email Accounts’

Select ‘View or change existing e-mail accounts’ and press ‘Next’.

On Email Accounts dialog box, highlight the account that you want to configure and Press the ‘Change’ button. If you don’t have an email account, you can press the ‘Add’ button and you’ll see the following screen.

Select POP3 and press Next.

Note that you must now use your Internet Service Provider (ISP)  for the ‘Outgoing mail server (SMTP):’ setting. In this example, we’ve called it smtp.YOUR-ISP.com. While most ISPs use the convention of ‘smtp’ or ‘mail’ in front of the ISP domain name,  you may need to contact the ISP and ask them for the name of your Outgoing SMTP server. Some Outgoing SMTP servers require authentication (a special password) so you may need to ask them for the authentication information as well as the name of their SMTP Server.

If your ISP does require SMTP Authentication, you will press the ‘More Settings …’  button and fill in this dialog box.

Sorry, we can’t tell you the settings for your ISP’s SMTP Outgoing Mail Server but your ISP can.

You’ll press ‘OK’ and ‘Next’ to save the changes. You can now test the email setup by addressing a new Email to you@yourdomain.com and press send. You should see the message come into your email box within a reasonable amount of time. The time it takes may depend on your ISP’s SMTP mail server load at the time that you send your test message.
