Setup Outlook 2003

Outlook is the most used mail client which is being used by many people. If Outlook is being installed on the computer, then you have to configure Outlook so you can collect your e-mail and read it. If Outlook is installed and configured, it automatically gets the e-mail from an Exchange server within a network or from another e-mail provider like Gmail etc.

If Outlook is just installed and you open it for the first time a wizard will be started so you can configure Outlook as you wish.

Here you have to select which type of server gets your e-mail.
Normally if you are working in a company network there is an Exchange Server so then you choose for the option 'Microsoft Exchange Server'.

If you use Outlook in a home situation and you have a provide like Gmail, you should choose for the option 'POP3'.

The other options are common not used very often.

If you have chosen the right mail server you click 'Next'. In this example I will discuss the POP3 mail server because this is the most used type of server in a home situation.

User information:

Here you enter your name and you e-mail address.

Server Information:

Here you have to enter the server information which you normally have received
from your Internet provider or e-mail provider. For example if you have an e-mail
address at Gmail, you enter at the 'Incoming mail server (POP3)' textbox: 'pop.gmail.com' and at the 'Outgoing mail server (SMTP) textbox: 'smtp.gmail.com'.

These server types you can normally find also on the website of the provider.
