How do I set up my email in Outlook?

For our 1and1.com customers these are your incoming and outgoing server settings:
Incoming server (POP): pop.1and1.com
Outgoing server (SMTP): smtp.1and1.com

Step By Step:

  1. Open Outlook
  2. Go to tools> email accounts> add new email > next>
  3. Choose POP3> Next
  4. Your name: what ever name you wish to have displayed on your outgoing email
  5. Type in your email address
  6. User name: same as email address
  7. Password: is your password
  8. Next if there is an option for it, choose to manually set up
  9. Incoming Mail server Pop3: pop.1and1.com
  10. Outgoing Mail server smtp: smtp.1and1.com
  11. Then click on more settings > out going server tab > check that first box and choose ok (server requires authentication)
  12. If there an options for it, make sure you choose to keep a copy of your emails on the server (good for safe keeping)
  13. Then test that you can send and receive email, if you cannot please go back into your email settings and go to more settings and choose the advanced tab and set outgoing smtp to port 587 and then test again. Please note: Optionally, port 587 can also be used in addition to the default port (25) RFC 2476.
