Step 9: Fill in the fields on the screen

Account Type: Select POP3

Step 13: Go to the “Outgoing Server” Tab and make sure to check the box next to the option “My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication” and be sure the radio button is checked next to “Use same settings as my incoming mail server”
Step 14: Click on the “Connection” tab and select the type of internet connect you are using. Then click “OK” on the bottom right of the popup (most customers do not need to do this step)
Step 15: Click “Next” and then click “Finish” to complete the email account setup.

Note: Leave a copy of messages on the server:
i) Place a tick in this box if you want to leave a copy of your downloaded mail on the server (recommended if you access this account from another device, such as a mobile phone).
ii) Remove the tick if you would prefer to have the messages deleted immediately after they have been downloaded.
