SMTP server

Click on Advanced tab.

IMAP ports
POP3 port 110     IMPAP port 143
SMTP port 587 (depends upon your ISP requirements which vary)
We recommend using port 587 because some ISPs block port 25.
Make sure the Delivery check box is unchecked. If "leave a copy on the server"
is checked all the read emails will remain on the server & the email box will fill up.

(If you wish to pick up the email for one account from more than one computer, click on "leave a copy on the server" AND click on "remove from server" after x days - don't use a high number or your email account will fill up)
Click OK

When the next screen displays Click on finish.

Your email account set up is complete.
