How do I access my CENTAURI VISION HOSTING
ACCOUNT mail with Outlook Express?
You can access your
account using any standard email client. The way it works is, your email client can receive
email from your Domain account ("incoming" email), but in order to send email from
your email client, you need an "outgoing" email server, which is usually
no problem assuming you have an ISP email account.
The directions below
are using screen shots from Microsoft Outlook Express. If you use a different
email client, you can get the settings and general instructions from here,
and configure your email client as needed.
If you have a lot of mail in your account, (for those members who are
now trying Outlook), it may take some time to download your mail to Outlook.
Once you have transported your mail, new mail should come in fast.
You may wish to delete junk mail from the web-mail panel first to save
Start Outlook Express so you can
create a new email account. From the "Tools" menu, select "Accounts".
To make a new
identity in outlook express,
start by opening it. (If you do not
use Outlook yet, it will start a new account automatically
when you first run it.) Otherwise, click on file/ identities/ add new identity and
add the following information when prompted.
From the screen above, click on "Add"
and then select "Mail".
You will be asked for your display
name. This is the name that will shown in the "From" email address
when you email people.
Next, enter your full Domain email address Example John@Abc.com
Next, select "POP3" as the incoming
email server type. Enter "mail.your Domain.com" as the incoming mail server. The next part will vary by user, it
is the outgoing email server (SMTP) that your ISP email account
uses. You need to figure this out from your ISP.
If your ISP does not provide a SMTP, use "mail.your Domain.com"
This screen is for your incoming email, which
is your Domain account. Enter your full email address (including the "@YourDomain.com"). Enter your password, then, you can decide
whether or not you want it saved. If you don't want to enter
your password every time you use Outlook Express, then check
the "Remember Password" box.
AFTER YOU SET THIS UP GO BACK TO ACCOUNTS
AND SELECT YOUR ACCOUNT AND CLICK PROPERTIES IN IT DO THE FOLLOWING
Click "Finish" and enjoy your email!
