This tutorial shows you how to set up Microsoft Windows Mail for Vista to work with your e-mail account with NameHOG. To Set Up Your E-mail Account follow the steps below.

For the purposes of this example, where it mentions yourdomainname.com, or any data in field names which are mentioned below, use your own information. The youdomainname.com should be replaced literally with the domain name you have setup with us, eg mywebsite.co.uk or abctoys123.com etc.


1. In Microsoft Windows Mail, from the Tools menu, select Accounts



2. On the right hand side, click on the Add... button.



3. On this screen select and click on E-mail Account, then click Next



4. In the Display Name field, enter you full name and click Next



5. In the E-mail address field, enter your email address that you have seup in CPanel, then click Next.



6. In the E-mail username and Password fields, enter your email address and password, this is the email account that you have added within your CPanel. Ensure that the Remember password checkbox is ticked. When done, click Next .



7. On the Set up e-mail servers page, enter your information as follows:


My incoming e-mail server type, Select: POP3
Incoming mail (POP3 or IMAP) server: mail.yourdomainname.com
Outgoing e-mail server (SMTP) name: mail.yourdomainname.com


Click the box for "Outgoing server requires authentication", then click Next



8. On the Congratulations page, select the "Do not download my e-mail at this time" check box. Then click on Finish.



9. You can now see your account you have setup, select it and click on Properties.



10. On the General tab which is first to appear, the top field is highlighted, you may wish to change this to your name as in the box underneath, e.g Thomas Dun. This is purely a cosmetic thing to helpp you identify the account. You also may want to put the reply address in aswell, which is the same as the E-mail address specified in the field above. See next step.



11. Now you have made the changed, you should see the below screen. No click the Advanced tab.



12. Select the Advanced tab and change the Outgoing Mail (SMTP) server port number from 25 which is the default, to 26 as below, and then click Apply, and then on OK. We use Port 26 as this 99% of the time works best with ISP's as most service providers block thord party port 25 traffic.



13. Click on the Close button to finish the setup.



14. Your account is now setup and ready to use. If you have multiple accounts, please repeat steps 1 through to 12 with the other account information.


15. If you have followed this guide exactly as above and NOT checked any other extra tick boxes etc, and also set an account up within your CPanel, we guarantee your email will work 100% fine with no trouble.
