Configure Your Computer's E-Mail Software

E-Mail Set-Up: Outlook 2002 (XP)

Step 1.

To begin, you need to get into the Outlook properties. To do this, locate the Microsoft Outlook icon on your desktop and right click on it. A menu will pop up similar to the one to the right. Click on Properties.
Step 2.

Click on the Show Profiles button.

Step 3.

This screen shows the different profiles configured on your machine. You may already have a profile installed automatically by Windows. You can ignore this. Click on the Add button to begin to create a new profile.


Step 4.

Outlook will now ask you to give the profile a name. Type your first initial and last name here and click OK.

Step 5.

Click 'Add a new e-mail account' and then Next.

Step 6.

Select the POP3 button and click Next.

Step 7.

In this window, you will enter the information about your e-mail account.

For the User Name, enter your e-mail account user name (including the @ sign and your domain name). 

For your Password, enter the password that was set up by InterCity Services. 

The Server Information fields should have exactly the same information as shown:
Incoming Main Server:
Outgoing Mail Server: (The Outgoing mail server will be your ISPs server information. You may need to contact your ISP for this. If you are using InterCity Services for your outgoing mail, enter:

Then click on More Settings

Step 8.

In this window, you may wish to enter a different reply E-mail address. If not, leave it as your E-mail address. When you are done, click on the Advanced tab.

Step 9.

In this tab, make sure your settings match those pictured in the example.  Click OK. This will return you to your main settings window. Click the Test Account Settings button.

Step 10.

If any errors occur, there probably is something improperly configured in your settings. Check them over for mistakes such as typos and then try the test again. Ideally, the test window should appear as it does in the example above. Click 'Close', 'OK', and then 'Next'.

Step 11.

When all the settings have been entered, and the test completed, this window will appear alerting you that your account has finished being set up. Click Finish.

Step 12.

When you are returned to this window, make sure the button, 'Always use this profile' is selected and the name of the new profile, (jdoe in this example), is shown in the field at the bottom of the window.  Click OK

The first time you run Outlook, you may be prompted to set up Outlook again through a wizard. You will want to just skip through this. At the screen that asks you if you have used Outlook before, click No. At the screen that asks which information service you want to use, click on Internet Only and click Next.  This should take you into Outlook and you can begin.
