I\'ve asked this before but nobody answered.

Using the Web hosting provided by I created my own site and I\'m entitled to an e-mail account. I would like to receive the emails sent to my account using Outlook but I don\'t know how to configure it.

If my email is

and my user account is cmyname

and my password is cmycode

Which are the server configurations for the Outlock. I need the names of the POP3 and SMTP for incoming and outcoming emails.

Thank you very much!

Dear Clarisa, Mar 15, 2003

it depends on your ISP (Internet Service Provider). You have to ask them for server settings.

BTW, Outlook is NOT the best mail client. Consider using Outlook Express, which is much more convenient as a TYPICAL mail client.

Hi, Clarisa! Mar 15, 2003

You must ask your internet provider because both POP3 and SMTP vary according to the provider.

Good luck!

1. Click on Web Hosting Mar 15, 2003

2. First thing you see will be: \"For information on your domain(s), click below:\"

followed by (clickable) \"\".

3. Click on \"\" and print out the page that follows (instructions for configuring you account).

I can\'t specify further because from here on everything depends on your ISP and the smtp code it uses (your \"pop\" will be \"\", as the instructions will tell you).

It is really easy: all you have to do is pay! Mar 15, 2003

The free mail service you get in Proz is provided by, and I must say it is a very good service. But it does not give you pop3 or smpt access. To get these services, plus a 25 MB mailbox, spam filters, no ads, human service, a brand new Porsche, a piece of heaven, and everything else, you must pay USD$20 for one year.

If you are interested in learning more about these added services, in the mailbox information page of your email service, in the lower portiong, you can see a list of the enhanced characteristics, plus a link to a still longer list of them, and another one to the purchase page.

If you already have a paid mail address, why don\'t you use it for your emails? I would.

(I lied. The Porsche is not new.)

And enjoy your work, as I do mine!

Than you, Parrot! Mar 15, 2003

As the wise Lorito said, the instructions were at \"Hosting\", I just had to click there twice, and follow the instructions!

Thank you, Parrot, and thank you all!

You mean it\'s second hand? Still a good deal if you ask me. icon_smile.gif
