Office Outlook 2007 logo Follow the procedure below to setup Outlook 2007 for use with your Smart Solutions email account. The only information you need to know before starting the setup process is your email address, and your password, which you should have received when you requested your account.

  1. Start Outlook how you normally would. For example, by clicking on the icon on the desktop, in the Start Menu, or from the icons along the bottom of your screen.

  2. Click the "Tools" menu and choose "Account Settings":

  4. Choose "Microsoft Exchange, POP3, IMAP, or HTTP" and click Next.

  5. Click "Manually configure server settings..." without filling in any information.

  6. Choose "Internet E-mail" and click Next.

  7. Fill in this screen completely with your information. Enter "mail.yourwebsitename.com" in both the "Incoming..." and "Outgoing..." boxes. Replace "yourwebsitename" with your real website's name. For example, if your website were http://www.echurch.net, you would enter "mail.echurch.net" in both of these fields.

    Your "User Name" is also your new e-mail address. Enter your full e-mail address, including both the parts before and after the "@" sign in this box. Your password is preassigned and must be entered in the "Password" area. Check "Remember password." Then choose "More Settings."

    Next, place a check in the top box: "My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication." Make sure the first sub-option ("Use same settings...") is selected and click "OK".
