Dialup Email Setup

Outlook Express Setup Instructions

To set up your email, open up 'Outlook Express'. Ignore any error messages you may receive by closing them out. When you are in the program:

  1. Click on the 'Tools' toolbar at the time, and then click 'Accounts'.
  2. Click on the 'Mail' tab. Delete anything in this tab by first clicking on it with the left mouse button one time, and then clicking the 'Remove' button on the right.
  3. Click 'Add' and then 'Mail'.
  4. You will be asked for a display name. Type in what you want people to see when you send them mail. Your email address is fine, or your name. Click 'Next'.
  5. You will be asked for your email address. Enter it, and then click 'Next'
  6. You will be asked what type of server your mail server is. Leave it at 'POP3', this is correct. The incoming mail server is 'pop3.gcccomputers.com'. The outgoing mail server is 'smtp.gcccomputers.com'. Then click 'Next'.
  7. Change the account name box to your FULL email address like you entered in step 5. (i.e. user@gcccomputers.com)
  8. Enter your password, and then click 'Next'
  9. Click 'Finish'
  10. Click 'Close'

Exit and then re-load Outlook Express and you will be able to receive your email.
