To Set Up Your E-mail Account in Microsoft Outlook Express

2. A box will appear. Click Add and select Mail.
3. In Display name, enter your name as you want it to appear on your emails and click Next.
4. In E-mail address, enter your full email address and then click Next.
5. On the E-mail Server Names window, enter your information as follows:
My incoming Mail Server is
Incoming mail (POP3, IMAP or HTTP) server

Outgoing mail (SMTP) server
“your-outgoing-mail-server” (where ‘your-outgoing-mail-server is replaced with your specific Internet Provider’s Outgoing Mail Server (EG. “mail.bigpond.com” if you use Telstra Bigpond to connect to the Internet, “mail.optusnet.com.au” for Optus, “mail.tpg.com.au” for TPG, etc).

Removing message copies from the web server
1. On the Tools menu, click E-mail Accounts
2. Click View or change existing e-mail accounts, and then click Next.
3. Select your account, and then click Change.
4. Click the More Settings button.
5. Click the Advanced tab, and under Delivery, select the Leave a copy of messages on the servercheck box.
6. Select the Remove from server after x days and type in a value of 7 (days). This will tell the server to download all E-mail messages to your computer but only leave a copy of the messages on the web server for a certain number of days. This is the most common setting for people who want to read their messages at work but also download them for permanent storage on their home computer. We recommend that you choose the smallest number of days that suits your needs. The longer you leave messages on your e-mail server, the greater the risk of filling-up your web server storage and exceeding your mailbox size quota.
7. Click OK, and then click Finish.
