How to set up an email account in Outlook Express

When you start Outlook Express and there is no email account already set up then the wizard will automatically start. If there is already an account setup and you want to add another then this is what you do:
  1. Open Outlook Express
  2. Go to the tools menu at the top
  3. Choose Accounts from the tools menu
  4. To add an account choose Add
  5. Then choose mail (for mail account)
Before you set up your email account in Outlook Express, you will need to know a few things first:
  1. Your email address.
  2. Your username. This is your username for your internet service provider. Sometimes it can be your email address that they provide with internet connection.
  3. Your password. This will be a password for the above account.
  4. Incoming mail server. This will be provided by your internet service. For example: mail.bigpond.com
  5. Outgoing mail server. Sometimes this is the same as the incoming mail server.
