Outlook Express Basic Setup
This section is intended to demonstrate how Outlook Express may be set up to work with Sitestar.net from scratch. If your Outlook Express is already configured for any e-mail account, you need to click here instead.

  1. Load Internet Explorer.
  2. Locate the icon on the toolbar labeled Mail. Most likely, this will be the third icon from the right but if in Full-Screen mode, it will be in the middle.
  3. Click on Mail to bring up a new menu. Select Read Mail from this menu to launch Outlook Express.
  4. If any wizards or configuration screens pop up when Outlook is launched, cancel out of them.
  5. Click on the menu item Tools, then click on Accounts.
  6. In the Accounts window, you will see several tabs. Make sure that the tab labeled Mail is the one selected.
  7. If there are any existing accounts that you wish to change, click here. Otherwise, if there are no pre-existing accounts, click Add.
  8. The Add button will bring up a small menu. From this menu, select Mail.
  9. The first bit of information required is the Display Name. In this box, type mail.sitestar.net and click Next.
  10. You will then be asked for your e-mail address, which is your username @ sitestar.net (For example, if your username is johndoe, your e-mail address is johndoe@sitestar.net). Enter this into the box and click Next.
  11. The incoming mail server is a POP3 server, which is the default. Both the incoming and outgoing mail servers are mail.sitestar.net. Enter these values and click Next.
  12. If this is your only e-mail address (if you are unsure, then this is the case), then the Account Name is the same as your username, and the password is the same as your dial-up password.
  13. For reasons of convenience, it is desirable to have a check in the box entitled Remember Password.
  14. It is absolutely vital that the box labeled Log On Using Secure Password Authentication remains unchecked. Once all the settings are correct, click Next.
  15. If a Choose Connection Type window follows, select Connect Using My Phone Line from the three options and click Next.
  16. You will receive a message declaring the setup complete. Click Finish and your account is now configured.
  17. You are now back in the Internet Accounts window. From here, click the Close button on the lower right corner.
  18. Your e-mail setup is now complete. In the future, in order to check your e-mail load Explorer and select Mail, then Read Mail as you did in Steps 2 & 3.
