This guide takes you step-by-step through the process of setting up a new email account in Outlook 2007.

If the Mail account is already set up, but giving errors – then refer to our  Troubleshooting guide.

Replace example.com with your domain name

♦ Auto Account Setup (recommended)

Setting up a new email address in Outlook is quick and easy using the Auto Account Setup option. However, reasons to rather use Manual Setup are:

  • if you prefer POP, as this automatic configuration defaults to IMAP 
  • if this is a new hosting account and domain propagation has not completed

Add a new email account

1. Launch Outlook 2007
2. Select Tools from the top menu bar, then Accounts Settings

Create new account

3. On the Account Settings screen, click New on the E-mail tab

In the Add New Account box, choose Auto Account Setup 

Enter your details under E-mail Account > Next.

6. Outlook will now automatically configure your account as an IMAP account with all the correct settings.

7. Finish > Close

That’s it!

If this option fails for some reason, try the Manual Account Setup below

♦ Manual Account Setup

If you prefer to use POP  you will need to set up the account manually:

Add a new email account

1. Launch Outlook 2007
2. Select Tools from the top menu bar, then Accounts Settings

Create new account

3. On the Account Settings screen, click New on the E-mail tab

Select Internet Email

6. Select Internet E-mail and then click Next

7. Email settings

  • Account type: POP or IMAP
  • Incoming mail server: mail. followed by your domain name e.g. mail.example.com*
  • Outgoing mail server (SMTP): smtp. followed by your domain name e.g. smtp.example.com*
  • User Name:  ensure you fill in your entire email address as the username
  • For new hosting accounts, use the IP address instead of the Incoming & Outgoing mail servers
  • Select the More Settings… button.

Outgoing Server Settings

8. Click on the Outgoing Server tab and ensure that the My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication checkbox is selected, as well as Use same settings as my incoming mail server

Advanced Settings

9. Select the Advanced tab

  •  Incoming server: 995 (POP) or 993 (IMAP)
  • Use the following type of encrypted connection: SSL
  • Outgoing server (SMTP): 465
  • Use the following type of encrypted connection: SSL

10. Click OK to save these settings
11. Click Next and Finish

* Note: In isolated cases mail.domain (e.g. mail.example.com) and smtp.domain won’t work. In these cases you will need to use the server name instead e.g. www34.cpt1.host-h.net. Find my server name.

Your Outlook mail program should now be set up to send and receive mail.
