Setting Up Internet E-Mail Accounts
Setting Up Internet E-Mail Accounts
After you’ve signed up with an ISP, you can set up Outlook to send and
receive e-mail from your account. Although any individual Internet e-mail
account requires setup only once, you can set up many such accounts if you
need them.
If you’re a corporate user, your system administrators may not want you to
mess around with account settings, and the bosses may have special
arrangements and settings that they want you to use when you work from
home. Either way, it’s best to ask first.
If you’re on your own, call the tech support line from your online service or
ISP to get all the proper spellings of the server names and passwords. (Don’t
forget to ask whether they’re case sensitive, which means the capitalization
matters!)
To set up an Internet e-mail account, follow these steps:
1. Click the File tab.
The Backstage view appears.
2. Click the Account Settings button and choose Account Settings from
the drop-down menu.
The Account Settings dialog box appears (see Figure 12-1).
