IMAP mail retrieval
After loading Outlook Express, click on Tools and then click on Options. When you create a new account, you'll be prompted for your full name:
Enter your e-mail address:
Select "IMAP", and use "mail.cscweb.net" for both your incoming and outgoing mail servers:
Use your login (ie: "pop12345") for your account name, along with the associated password:
Right click on the newly created mail folder and select "Properties":
Select the "Servers" tab and check the box under "Outgoing Mail Server" for "My server requires authentication":
Return to E-Mail Help
- Select the "Advanced" tab.
- Within the Advanced tab, Select "This server requires a secure connection" for BOTH Outgoing and Incoming mail.
- Change the port number for "Outgoing Mail" to 587 (instead of 25), to bypass any outgoing mail restrictions your ISP has in place.
- Click OK - you're done!
