Mail Program Setup: Outlook Express
Before you setup anything in the mail program you need to create at least one user account (with the Site owner panel). You can view this demo to learn how to create mail accounts.
In Outlook Express you can create new mail accounts in "Tools"->"Accounts"->"Mail"->"Add"->"Mail".
If your domain is "yourdomain.com" and the user is "username", you should use this info:
Incoming mail (POP3): mail.yourdomain.com
Outgoing mail (SMTP): mail.yourdomain.com
Account/Login/User name: firstname.lastname@example.org
Password: The password for "username".
Make sure to check the option: "My server requires authentication". (The exact wording may be slightly different depending on your mail program)
Do NOT check the option: "Logon using secure password authentication". (Again, the exact wording may be slightly different depending on your mail program)
Advanced info (probably not needed):
Outgoing mail port: 25
Incoming mail port: 110
Many ISP's started blocking the port for outgoing mail - the customers can ONLY send mail through the ISP's own outgoing mail servers.
This is because several virus are turning private computers into spam mail servers.
