Microsoft Outlook 2013
Fill out the form:
Your Name: You can chose whatever you like to be the name of the account. This box is important for you only so you know what to name the email account. Here we used IT Support.
E-mail Address: Put your full email address like the example below it.
Password: This is your email address password. You have to know this password in order to access your email account.
Retype Password: Just retype the same email address password you just typed above. This is only a conformation that the password is correct and IS required.
**** Make sure to click the Manual setup or additional server types button. We will be setting up the server information with the approved settings for eVetSites so your email routes properly. Do not worry that the email account button is not selected or that the screen grays out. This is what we want it to do like the image below shows.
On this screen, select Pop or IMAP.
Then click Next.
On this page, fill in all the following information:
Your Name: Again, only used for email account recognition purposes for you.
Email Address: Please enter your FULL email address. Example (email@example.com). Please use the email address exactly how you have it already. This means if there are capital letters, use them here too. If there are numbers, use them. The email address has to be exactly the same.
Account Type: POP3 or POP only.
Incoming mail server: checkmymail.net or whatever your domain server is (example: mail.theirdomain.whatever).
Outgoing mail server (SMTP): checkmymail.net or smtpout.evetsites.net or whatever your domain server is (example: mail.theirdomain.whatever).
User Name: Your FULL email address.
Password: Your email address password (Remember to check the Remember Password box below so that the box will not keep popping up asking for your password every time.)
Uncheck the Require logon using Secure Password Authentication (SPA).
Keep the box checked on the right that says, Automatically test account settings when Next is clicked.
Click More Settings.
Under the General tab, type a name for the account display name. This will be the name that shows up for main folder for your email account in outlook. Here we used eVetSites.
Click on the Outgoing Server Tab.
Under Outgoing Server:
Keep the box checked for My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication.
Click the button for Use same settings as my incoming mail server.
Click on the Advanced tab.
On the Advanced tab:
Make sure the incoming server (POP3) is port 110.
If the This server requires an encrypted connection (SSL) is checked, uncheck it. We do not use SSL.
Make sure the Outgoing server (SMTP) is port 2525. The default port 25 can get blocked at times since it is the same port everyone uses and is sometimes considered spam. Port 2525 will help ensure your email goes out.
Under Delivery at the bottom of the Advanced tab, make sure the Leave a copy of the message on the server box is checked. Also Remove from server after you can change the days if you like, but leave the box checked.
Click OK then when the screen closes, hit Test Account Settings from the prior page.
After you click Test Account Settings, you should get this message below:
Click Close and you should see this message below:
Now, with your email set up, let's test it!! Click the New Mail from the top left corner.
Compose an email to yourself:
Just use your own email address in the To? field.
In the Subject field, type Test
In the content box below it, type anything you like. Here we used ?This is a test.??
Click Send in the top left corner next to To?
Give it a few minutes or click Send/Receive All Folders in the top right side. It's the second button from the end up there.
You should receive your test email in your inbox. Open it up and you are all done! Your email works! Congratulations on completing your Microsoft Outlook 2013 email set up.
