Access Your Email
via Microsoft
Outlook

You will need to configure your mail program to log into our mail servers.  We have described below how to setup Microsoft Outlook to access and send your mail.  The discussion below should also be useful for other mail software, as most mail programs require basically the same information.

New Hosting Clients and New Domains:  Please note that although your account exists on our server you won't be able to receive email at you@yourdomain.com until InterNIC has finished processing your domain name registration or modification or name server information.  This is only applies to new accounts or new domains.

Microsoft Outlook Email Software

When you add a new email account to Outlook, you will need to add the following details.

Display Name = Your Actual Name
Email Address = you@yourdomain.com
My Incoming Mail is a = POP3
Incoming Mail = mail.yourdomain.com
Outgoing Mail = mail.yourdomain.com
Account Name = you@yourdomain.com
Password = your password for this email address

After your POP3 account is setup by adding a new mail account, you can view the properties of the mail account and check to ensure the fields are filled out correctly as show below.  By completing all the fields, your emails will appear more professional to your clients.
