HOW TO ADD AN EMAIL ACCOUNT TO OUTLOOK 2010

    As a POP3 account

Open Outlook and go to File in the upper left-hand corner. Click on the small button called Account Settings and than click once again on the drop-down called Account Settings...

 A new window will appear called "Account Settings". Click on New...

Choose E-mail Account and press next.

If you want to set it up as a POP account choose the option Manually configure server settings or additional server types. If you're wanting it set as an IMAP skip down five pictures.

Choose Internet E-mail and press Next.

Enter your name and email address in the User Information section. In the Server Information section make sure your account type is set to POP3. Your incoming mail server is pop.emypeople.net (this will also work if you have a custom domain unless you ever change hosting companies) and your outgoing mail server smtp.emypeople.net. Enter your username (full email address) and password. Before pressing Next make sure you've entered the correct information.

Once satisfied that you have entered the proper settings go ahead and hit Next.

A window will pop up testing the settings to make sure that what you've entered will work to actually send emails. Once it's done testing it'll let you know that all tests completed and prompt you to click close to continue. If it throws an error make sure you've entered the correct settings and that you're connected and than try testing again.

Last of all you should see a window letting you know it's been added successfully. Just close out of everything until you're back to Outlook's main page. Happy emailing!
