NOTE: If you would rather have a tech show you how, then watch the video above. Be sure to make it full screen. Easier to see, that way.

NOTE: This tutorial is for Microsoft Outlook 2007. If you have a different version and cannot figure things out using this tutorial, contact us and we may be able to help.

1. Click Tools > Account Settings. Click "New."

2. Ignore all the text entry boxes, and just tick the check box that says, "Manually configure server settings or additional server types." Click Next.

3. Ensure "Internet Email" is selected. Click Next.

4. "Internet E-mail Settings"

  • Enter your Name.

  • Enter your Email Address.

  • Account type: POP3

  • Incoming Mail Server: mail.plainsnet.net

  • Outgoing Mail Server: mail.plainsnet.net

  • Enter your User Name. It is your email address without the "@plainsnet.net" at the end. So for the email "example@plainsnet.net," the user name would be "example".

  • Enter your Password.

  • Click "More Settings."


5. "More Settings"

  • Click the "Outgoing Server" tab.

  • Tick the check box that says, "My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication."

  • Click the "Advanced" tab.

  • Under "Incoming Server," tick the check box that says, "This server requires an encrypted connection (SSL)."

  • Under "Outgoing Server," use the drop-down menu to choose "SSL."

  • Click OK.


6. Click Next > Finish. Click Close.

7. You're done! Click Send/Receive to receive mail. You may see a warning which says, "The server you are connected to is using a security certificate that cannot be verified." Click Yes.
