Outlook Express
« on: June 12, 2010, 05:05:16 AM »
Ah the joy of having a short memory. Someone 5 1/2 years ago told me how to setup Outlook Express but in the meantime I learned how to tie my shoes or something else important and of course the Outlook Express information went out the side door. Can someone (using really small words) tell me how to setup Outlook Express to work with my mail account at Centurytel.net?    :shy:

Setting up outlook is pretty easy (I prefer Thunderbird v3)
But first thing you need before you start, do you know the server settings and your password?

Password yes, same as Centurytel logon. Server -- not a clue - it was pop something or other.    :shy:

all you need then is your incoming and outgoing (POP3 & SMTP) server then you have everything you need to set it up and I can walk you through it.

I went to Centurytel to get the info you needed. Instead of just the info they sent me a long E-Mail with all the setup instructions so it's a done deal. Guess this one should be closed.    :cheesy:

Print and keep that email. When setting up my customers the info I need is those servers, and anything special they need. With that info you can use any email client :-)

Locking thread.
