Microsoft Outlook - IMAP
Microsoft provides a number of email clients to access your emails via. Please note that your version of Outlook may not look visually the same as the screenshots featured in this guide however all versions of Outlook will set up according to the steps below.
Step by Step Guide
Double click on the Microsoft Outlook shortcut to start up Outlook and wait for the program to load. Once Outlook has loaded click on the 'Tools' menu then 'Account Settings' and 'New' to begin the process of adding a new mailbox to Outlook. (Please note that if you're using Outlook 2010 or 2013 you need to go to 'File' instead of 'Tools').
On the 'Auto Account Setup' window click the tick box at the bottom named 'Manually configure server settings and additional server types' and click 'Next'.
This window will give you a number of options which allow you to set up the server settings for our mailbox. The 'Your Name' field should include the name you want to appear on the recipient's email program when you send them an email (this doesn't have to be the same as your email address).
In 'Account Type' select 'IMAP'. In the 'Incoming Mail Server' field you should insert mail1.spoton.net (example: mail.itseeze.co.uk). For the 'Outgoing Mail Server' it should be mail1.spoton.net.
The 'Username' field should be filled in with your entire email address, for example firstname.lastname@example.org. The requested password will be the password to log into your mailbox that you were sent along with your user name. Now we need to change some more advanced settings, click the 'More Settings' button in the bottom right hand corner.
In the 'Outgoing Server' tab ensure that your settings match the screen grab above.
In the 'Advanced' tab, ensure that the incoming server is set to port 993, and the outgoing server is set to 465 and ensure that 'SSL' is chosen as the method of your encrypted connection for both the incoming and outgoing server.
In the 'Delivery' sub-menu, ensure that 'Leave a copy of messages on the server' and 'remove from server when deleted from 'Deleted Items' are ticked.
Now click 'OK' and you'll be returned to the previous window.
Now you're back at the 'Internet Email Settings' window, on the right hand side there is a 'Test Account Settings' button. Click on this button and Outlook will test your settings are correct by sending you a test message. If everything is fine, it'll display a message like above and you can click 'Next'.
Outlook will now finish setting your mailbox up and when complete you will receive a message like the one shown above. Congratulations you now have a fully functioning mailbox!
