1. From Start choose Email. Windows Mail is already installed on Windows Vista.
2. Then go to Tools > Accounts
3. Click Add which is the first button on the right.
4. Select E-mail Accounts and then click Next.
5. In Display Name enter your name, your nickname, or your company’s name depending on how you want to be displayed when you send an email and then click Next.
6. In E-mail address enter your e-mail address and then click Next (in the example we are creating an email account for an imaginary email: firstname.lastname@example.org).
7. In the following window that appears do the following:
Incoming Mail Server: Your incoming server is mail.mydomain.com.au, where mydomain.com.au is the name of your domain.
Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP): You must use the Outgoing Mail Server Name of your current Internet Server Provider (ISP). An SMTP server is used by your email client (e.g. outlook) to send your mail. It is preferable to use the SMTP server provided by your Internet Service Provider (ISP), this is because some ISPs place restrictions on SMTP servers. As such, we provide the list below of the SMTP server of common Australian ISPs.
The option Log on using Secure Password Authentication (SPA) should be unchecked (at the default value). After finishing with the above click Next.
8. Complete the Internet Mail Logon window and then click Next.
E-mail Address: Enter your e-mail address (in the example we are creating an email account for an imaginary email: email@example.com).
Password: The password is case sensitive. Decide if you want to check the "Remember password" field.
9. At this stage you have completed your email setup. Please note that you must check (select) the option Do not download my e-mail at this time.
The process is completed when you click Finish.
