Setup an email account in Outlook 2010

Before you begin, please make sure that you have a valid email account and you have collected all necessary data: username for the email account, email account password, server address POP/IMAP and SMTP. For example, if you have a domain name like ‘mydomain.com’ and an email account ‘user@mydomain.com’, the username will be ‘user@mydomain.com’ and the email server addresses will be ‘mail.mydomain.com’, for both POP/IMAP and SMTP.

3. In this moment your account is configured through IMAP, so the messages are stored on the server. To configure your account for POP3 select 'Manually configure server settings' and hit 'Next'. Note !!! When you use POP the email will be deleted from the server and will be stored locally on your computer.
