Setting up an email program: Outlook Express

5. Select the server type POP3 and enter the incoming mail server and the outgoing mail server in the fields provided.

If you want to use IMAP, you can choose it as well. Your emails are staying directly on the server with IMAP and won’t be downloaded on your computer. This is for example practical if several computers access to the same email account.

Incoming mail server: The incoming mail server is derived from your domain name. Simply replace the "www." of your domain name with "mail." (e.g. "" --> "" or "" --> "").

Outgoing mail server: Set the same values here as for the incoming mail server. Alternatively, with many Internet Providers the outgoing mail server of your provider can be given instead (e.g. "") in order to avoid problems with spam lists.

Then click "Next" again.
