Basic help is contained here. For detailed illustrated help configuring versions of Outlook, Pegasus, Eudora, or Netscape click here.
Note: Web-based mail will not work through some versions of AOL. In this case, use AOL for your Internet connection, then minimize it and open another browser (i.e., Internet Explorer).
Go to tools/accounts/add/mail.
A dialog box will open.
Fill in the blanks as follows:
Display Name: whatever you want people to see in the "from" box of an e-mail from you
An e-mail address you'd like to use: firstname.lastname@example.org
Incoming mail server is a POP3 server:
Outgoing mail server is an SMTP server:
Make sure the box under outgoing server "My server requires authentication" is checked.
Account name: email@example.com
Password: your password (ensure you have the proper case selected)
Note: Have the program remember your password or not, depending on your preference.
Fill in applicable connection information (if the window pops up)
Recent security enhancements require authentication when sending mail. Choose the email account that has been created and click properties. Click the servers tab. Check the box next to "My server requires authentication".
To test this, click on send/receive
The program will go to the mail server, log in and retrieve messages on the server (if there are any there). Then it will send any messages you have pending. You should not receive any error messages if your domain transfer is complete.
Differences for other mail clients:
Eudora and Eudora Lite settings are similar, with the same incoming and outgoing mail server information, but the program requires users to be completely defined.
username%mail.domain firstname.lastname@example.org name.com
The above goes into the pop account box.
Netscape setup should be the same as Outlook, but if it doesn't work make your account name like this: name%domain.com
If you have any other mail clients to set up, please refer to your documentation; they're all similar to method you use to log in at the web interface: "mail.yoursitename.com".
