where do i get this info from while setting up email accounts
my display name, email name, server names, account name and password
especially the server name?
From the ISP that is providing you with your email account.
How do I set up my Hotmail and Yahoo emails to come through to Outlook 2003. I know they have different POP and STMP servers addresses, which I am also having difficulty locating. Can you please provide step-bystep assistance if you can for one, or both of these email accounts. Many thanks!
With Yahoo I'm fairly certain you cannot. They don't provide a pop3 interface. (Though I believe Yahoo UK was or is doing something with their premium for-pay service).
HotMail used to be accessible via Outlook and Outlook Express, but that's no longer supported. And again, there is no POP3 or HotMail interface.
Both are, effectively, web-only mail services.
Maybe you know the answer. One of my clients says she is using Microsoft Outlook 2003. I have an older version and the mail settings are different. I'm trying to find the area where it says Leave a copy on server. We couldn't find it. Her webmail is retaining messages that she has already received in her Outlook and she doesn't want it to.
It's in the same place for both: Tools -> Email Accounts -> View or Change -> select the account -> Change -> More Settings -> Advanced -> Leave a copy ...
Hotmail accounts accessed through Outlook, however, don't have that option.
how do i set up a Hotmail account for Outlook 2003?
Select "HTTP Server" instead of POP3 as the server type when you set up an email account normally.
Be aware that Hotmail free accounts may no longer be accessible via Outlook.
Outlook 2002 - When you click Tools | Options | Email Options | Mark
My comments with - there is a name in that box and it is grayed out. Once you select the Mark My Comments With and delete the name, then uncheck the box, as soon as you log
off and log back in the name reappears.
I'm trying to follow your instructions but still I'm getting lost. I've just set up a new website and have an email address to match the domain. I want to set this email address up to come into my Microsoft Outlook package. I'm attempting to set up Outlook but cannot get past the Email Accounts page. I don't know if I'm meant to choose Microsoft Exchange Server, Pop3, HTTP IMAP etc. Can you give me further advice?
