Important Points

  • These instructions assume your email account has already been setup and is collecting email correctly.
  • Take a note of any settings you change.
  • Only change the items specified - you should not need to change either your email address, POP3 server, POP3 username / password.
  • These instructions are only for Microsoft Outlook 2003 - for other email programs please see How To Setup inboxFX SMTP Server or contact us.
  • We have instructions for alternate port which is generally used if your ISP blocks the normal port 25 SMTP access (as most ISPs do these days!).

  • From the main screen open the the 'Tools' menu and then select 'E-mail Accounts...'

Step Six

  • Tick 'My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication'
  • Select 'Log on using'

  • Tick the 'Remember password' option
