  • Email Address: The email address you are setting up
  • Account Type: Select IMAP
  • Incoming mail server:
  • Outgoing mail server:

  • Password: The password setup for your email address

Now click "More Settings..."

7. On the "More Settings" poopup select the "Outgoing Server" tab and make sure the "My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication" box is checked. Also make sure the first radio button is selected - "Use same setting as my incoming mail server"

8.Now click the "Advanced" tab - and first change the drop boxes to "SSL" and then make sure the number boxes contain "993" for incoming server, and "465" for SMTP
