This page explains how to set up your Outlook mail software to check mail with the Fyles Web Design email service.
Start Outlook 2010
Click the File tab. Under Account Information, click ‘Add Account’.
Click ‘Manually configure server settings’
Click ‘Internet Email’
Complete the User Information fields as shown:
Your Name: this is displayed to people you send mail to
Server Information as follows:
Account type: IMAP
Incoming mail server: mail.fyles.co.nz
Outgoing mail server (SMTP): mail.fyles.co.nz
User name: must be your full email address
Password: as provided by Fyles Web Design
Remember password: yes, check this box unless you want to type a password each time you check your mail
Require logon using Secure Password Authentication (SPA): absolutely must be checked
Click ‘More Settings...’ to proceed
In the ‘More Settings’ dialogue box, click the ‘Outgoing Server’ tab
Check the ‘My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication’ box
This is the final screen...
Click the ‘Advanced’ tab
Choose TLS from both drop-down menus
Make sure Incoming server (IMAP) port number is 143
Make sure Outgoing server (SMTP) port number is 587 The previous two steps are the ones that some people miss - this is because when you choose TLS from the dropdown menus Outlook 2010 inserts the wrong TLS port numbers into the two fields.
Click OK - the dialogue box disappears.
Back in the large setup window, click ‘Next’. You will see progress bars and a test message will be sent. The email account will now be ready to use.
