This guide will take you through the steps of setting up your email address in Outlook.


There are two methods of setting up your email address. You could either set it up by allowing Outlook to search for the relevant settings automatically or you could go the manual route.


In Outlook you will need to click on “File” and then “Add Account”.



Set up your email automatically:


Enter your details as requested and click “Next”.

 


You might get the following pop-up message. All you have to do is “Allow” and “Proceed”:



If all the details are correct, Outlook will confirm that the account has been set up successfully and you can click “Finish”.




Set up your email manually:


If the automatic option fails for any reason, there is a way you can set up your email address manually.


The first step would be the same as before. Simply click on “File” and then “Add Account”.


Instead of entering your details in the fields, select the “Manual set up or additional server types” instead.



Select "POP or IMAP" on the next page.



You will then be asked to enter the necessary information for your email address to work. 


Both Incoming and Outgoing mail server settings will be:


mail.example.co.za

Replace "example.co.za" with your domain name.


Once you are done, please click on “More Settings”.

 


Please select the following within the “More Settings” section and click “OK”:



You will return to the account information page. Please click “Next” to finish the setup. Outlook will test the account settings and confirm if you were successful:



Congratulations! You have now successfully set up your email address!
