APPLE – Outlook for Mac
3. Email address
Email address: Enter the email address you want to configure.
Password: The password for the email address you set previously in My Panel. If you do not know the password, refer to the instructions for changing your email password.
Disable the option «Configure automatically».
4. Advanced configuration
After you have entered the email address and password, the window is expanded, and you can enter additional settings.
User name: The username is the email address you want to configure.
Type: Select «POP» or «IMAP». We recommend using IMAP to access your emails because the emails remain saved on the server. This allows you to read emails from different computers and mobile devices as well. In the case of POP, emails are deleted from the server after they are downloaded to your Mac.
Incoming and outgoing mail servers: Enter «login-XX.hoststar.ch». (Replace «XX» with the «actual server number for your hosting account».)
If you want to use «SSL encryption», enable the «Use SSL to connect» option.
Change the appropriate ports.
The port for the incoming mail server varies depending on the protocol you have selected (IMAP or POP3) and whether SSL is enabled. Depending on the configuration, select the following port:
- IMAP without SSL: 143
- IMAP with SSL: 993
- POP without SSL: 110
- POP with SSL: 995
Enter port «587» for the outgoing mail server if you are not using SSL, or port «465» if you are using SSL.
Next, click «Add Account».
5. Advanced settings
You have now completed the basic configuration for your email account. There are a few additional settings you must configure before you can begin sending and receiving emails:
Account description: Enter a description for the account as desired.
Full name: Enter your first and last name, or the company name. (You may choose either.)
Email address: The email address you are setting up appears here.
Check that the details for the incoming and outgoing mail servers are correct.
Then click «More Options » to configure SMTP authentication.
All settings for your email address have now been configured for Outlook for Mac.
