APPLE – Outlook for Mac
If you have set up the email address in My Panel, you can then add the account to Outlook for Mac. Follow these steps:
1. Open the software
Open Outlook on your Mac. Under Tools, click Accounts to manage your email accounts.
Below Add Account you will see several options. Select Email Account.
3. Email address
Email address: Enter the email address you want to configure.
Password: The password for the email address you set previously in My Panel. If you do not know the password, refer to the instructions for changing your email password.
Disable the option Configure automatically.
4. Advanced configuration
After you have entered the email address and password, the window is expanded, and you can enter additional settings.
User name: The username is the email address you want to configure.
Type: Select POP 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. In the case of POP, emails are deleted from the server after they are downloaded to your Mac.
Incoming and outgoing mail servers: 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).
If you want to use SSL encryption, enable the Use SSL to connect option.
Change the appropriate ports.
The port for the incoming mail server varies depending on the protocol you have selected (IMAP or POP3) and whether SSL is enabled. Depending on the configuration, select the following port:
- IMAP without SSL: 143
- IMAP with SSL: 993
- POP without SSL: 110
- POP with SSL: 995
Enter port 587 for the outgoing mail server if you are not using SSL, or port 465 if you are using SSL.
Next, click Add Account.
5. Advanced settings
You have now completed the basic configuration for your email account. There are a few additional settings you must configure before you can begin sending and receiving emails:
Account description: Enter a description for the account as desired.
Full name: Enter your first and last name, or the company name. (You may choose either.)
Email address: The email address you are setting up appears here.
Check that the details for the incoming and outgoing mail servers are correct.
Then click More Options to configure SMTP authentication.
6. More options
Our mail servers require SMTP authentication to send emails. Under Authentication, select "Use Incoming Server Info and click OK.
All settings for your email address have now been configured for Outlook for Mac.
