Incoming mail (POP3, IMAP) server : mail.domain.comOutgoing mail (SMTP) server :

(replace your OWN domain name for domain) 


Then, click Next.





6. In the Account Name and Password fields, enter your email address and password, and then click Next. 




7. On the setup confirmation page, click Finish. 




8. On the Mail tab, select the account you just created, and then click Properties.




9. Go to the Servers tab. 



10.  Select My server requires authentication, and then click Apply. 





11. Go to the Advanced tab.
