WINDOWS – Outlook 2013
Once you have set up the email address in My Panel, you can then add the account to Outlook 2013. Follow these steps:
1. Open the software
Click File → Information → Add account to configure a new account.
2. Select option
Select the option Manually configure server settings or additional server types and click Next.
3. Select service
Select POP or IMAP and then click Next.
4. Enter the details
Your name: Enter your name in this field. You can also leave this field blank if desired. If left blank, the recipient will see your email address as the sender, otherwise they see the name entered in this field.
Email address: Enter the email address you want to configure. If you are unsure whether the address has already been set up on the server, refer to the guide on setting up an email address in My Panel.
Account type: Select POP3 or IMAP. We recommend using IMAP to access your emails because the emails remain saved on the server. This allows you to read emails from different computers and mobile devices as well. With POP3, the emails are deleted from the server after they are downloaded to your computer.
Incoming server: Enter lx#.hoststar.hosting. (The first letter of the server name is a small L like Linux. Replace # with the effective server number of your hosting.).
Outgoing server: Enter the same details as for the incoming mail server.
User name: The username is the email address you want to configure.
Password: The password you selected for the email address in My Panel. If you do not know the password, refer to the instructions for changing your email password.
After you have entered your details, click More settings....
5. Outgoing server
Click the Outgoing Server tab and then enable authentication for the outgoing mail server and enable the option Use my settings as my incoming mail server.
6. Advanced settings
Next, click the Advanced tab and change the SMTP port from 25 to 587. If you have enabled SSL for the outgoing mail server, change the port to 465.
The port for the incoming mail server varies depending on the protocol you have selected (POP3 or IMAP) and whether SSL is enabled. Depending on the configuration, select the following port:
- IMAP without SSL: 143
- IMAP with SSL: 993
- POP3 without SSL: 110
- POP3 with SSL: 995
If you are using IMAP, enter INBOX in the Root folder path field (without quotation marks). Otherwise, emails will not be displayed correctly.
If the account is set up for POP3, you can enable the Leave a copy of messages on the server if desired. Please note that the messages should be deleted from the server after a reasonable period. Otherwise, your mailbox may fill up.
Then click OK.
7. Test and finish
Click Next to test the account settings.
Fix any mistakes you find and then check the settings again.
Click Next and then Finish to exit the wizard. You have now finished setting up your email account.
