How do I set-up my email account in Outlook or Outlook Express?
Start by opening Outlook and clicking on 'Tools' then 'Accounts'. From there you should see a smaller window is opened called "Internet Accounts". From there, select the "Mail" tab, and click the "Add" button then "Mail" to make a new account. If you are editing an existing account, select "Properties" and skip to the "Checking My Setup" section.

Now you are in the Internet Connection Wizard. First, enter the email address that you are using, for example, This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it and click 'Next'. This is the email address that will appear on your outgoing email (your FROM: address).

Next, enter your email address that you are receiving email from. Normally this is the same as the email address you entered in the last screen. Click 'Next'.

The next screen should be "E-mail Server Names". Select POP3 in the first box titled "My Incoming Mail Server is a ________ Server."

The next line asks for your "Incoming mail (POP3, IMAP or HTTP) server:" Enter mail. followed by your domain name. For example, if your website's domain name is 'www.mysite.co.za' you would enter 'mail.mysite.co.za`

In the next box, you are asked for your "Outgoing mail (SMTP) server:" Your ISP's outgoing mail server or the same as you did for the Incoming mail server - 'mail.mysite.co.za`

Some ISP's SMTP server:
Vodacom: smtp.vodacom.co.za
MTN: mail.mtn.co.za
Cell C: mail.cmobile.co.za
Axxess: smtp.axemail.co.za
Telkom: mail.saix.co.za
Mweb: smtp.mweb.net
iBurst: smtp.iburst.co.za
IS: smtp.isdsl.net

You should now be at the "Internet Mail Logon" screen. Where you are asked for you Account Name, enter the email account name. It is the name of the account you've created in the control panel for example This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
Next, enter your password. The password would be the same as the one you have created in the control panel for " This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it "

At this point, Do Not check the "Log on using Secure Password Authentication (SPA)" box.

Click 'Next' and then 'Finish'.

Now you should be back to the "Internet Accounts" window. From here, click "close" and you should be done!

Or you can click on the account that you have just set up, and click the 'Properties' button. You will enter into a window called "Properties". In here you should see the settings you entered in the setup wizard. If you need to make changes to the setup later on, you can skip the setup wizard part, and go straight to the Properties section and edit the information for your account there.
