Setting Up Outlook Express to Work with Xplorex Mail:
Open Outlook Express. Note that Outlook Express is different from Microsoft Outlook; instructions for Microsoft Outlook can be found here.
Click on Tools, Accounts:
A new window will appear. Click on Add, and select Mail:
Enter your Display Name. This is what will appear to people when they receive your email message. Click Next when done.
E-Mail Address: Enter the email account you just created – email@example.com. Click Next when done.
Ensure POP3 appears in the drop down menu. Enter the server information as follows:
Incoming mail server (POP3): mail.xplorex.com
Outgoing mail server (SMTP): mail.xplorex.com
Note: Sometimes people using Telus as their ISP will have issues with their Outgoing mail server. If these settings do not work, you will have to change your SMTP server to smtp.telus.net. However, try the default Xplorex mail settings first.
Your Account Name is your complete email address. Outlook will, by default, copy only the start of your email address – overwrite the information with your full email address, as shown below.
Password: Type in the password you chose in the Xplorex System backend. By selecting “Remember password”, you will not be prompted to type in your password when you open Outlook Express. Do not check this box if you share your computer with others. Click Next.
Click Finish. You are now ready to send and receive email with the Xplorex System!
