These instructions are for Microsoft Outlook 2003, but the methods are similar for all other versions.
Note: Outlook 97 and unpatched Outlook 2000 installations may require upgrades (patches) from Microsoft.
These are needed in order to authenticate against the servers.
Older versions of Outlook Express may have authentication problems - we suggest using the free email client from Mozilla, called "Thunderbird". It's 100% free, has many advanced features and is easy to use and setup.

    This will open the window shown below.
  7. On the Internet E-mail Settings window, select the "Outgoing Server" tab.

    If this is a workstation, we suggest that you leave the SMTP server set to port 25.
