Setting up IMAP email account in Outlook 2007

Here is a step by step guide on setting up your e-mail account in Microsoft Outlook 2007.

NOTE: To complete these steps, you will need to know your email address, password, incoming mail server name, and outgoing mail server name that is provided by your service provider (in most cases Integralvision will have supplied this information).

  1. Start Outlook.
  2. On the Tools menu, click Account Settings.
  3. Click New.
  4. Click ‘Microsoft Exchange, POP3, IMAP, or HTTP’, and then click Next.
  5. In the Auto Account Setup dialog box, click to select the Manually configure server settings or additional server types check box, and then click Next.
  6. Click Internet E-Mail, and then click Next.
  7. Fill out the required settings as following:
  8. Your Name: Your name exactly as you want it to appear to recipients when they receive email from you.
  9. Email Address: your full email address – eg yourname@yourdomain.com
  10. Account Type: IMAP (recommended)
  11. Incoming mail server: mail.<domain> – replace <domain> with your domain name, so for example mail.yourdomain.com
  12. Outgoing mail server (SMTP): mail.<domain> – same as the Incoming mail server
  13. Username: your full email address once again
  14. Password: your mail box password
  15. Ensure that ‘Require logon using Secure Password Authentication (SPA) remains unchecked. This is important as you may experience difficulty sending email with this enabled.
  16. Click “More Settings…” in the bottom right of the window.
  17. Click “Outgoing Server” tab at the top.
  18. Tick the box labelled “My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication”.
  19. Click “Advanced” tab at the top.
  20. In the Outgoing mail (SMTP) box, type 25. *Note, if you have trouble sending e-mail, please try changing this to port 587.
  21. Ensure that ‘This server requires an encrypted connection (SSL) is unchecked.
  22. The ‘Use the following type of encrypted connection:’ option should be set to None.
  23. Click “Ok” to close the window.
  24. Click Next after you have completed entering this configuration information, and then click Finish
