If you want to connect to your Exchange server using POP/SMTP or IMAP/SMTP protocols, you can configure your mail client manually. The following instructions apply to Outlook 2007/2010/2013.
- Go to your Outlook mail settings from Start > Control Panel > Mail.
- If you cannot locate the Mail icon within Windows Control Panel, try the following steps:
- To the left of the Windows Control Panel, but in the same window, select Classic View.
- If Mail still does not appear as an individual icon, look for it under Show 32-bit Control Panel Items.
- Click the Show Profiles button and click Add for a new profile.
- Specify your Profile Name (can be anything) and click OK.
- Proceed with the steps in the next section, according to your version of Outlook.
- Choose E-mail Account and click Next.
- Choose Manually configure server settings or additional server types and click Next.
- Choose Internet E-mail and click Next.
- Type in the settings:
- Your Name: Display Name of the user
- Account Type: Choose POP or IMAP. Note: We strongly recommend to use IMAP.
- Incoming mail server: navigate to CONTROL PANEL > Users & Sevices > Advanced Settings > Incoming mail (POP/IMAP)
- Outgoing mail server: navigate to CONTROL PANEL > Users & Sevices > Advanced Settings > Outgoing mail (SMTP)
- User Name: full email address of Exchange mailbox
- Password: Exchange mailbox password.
10.Click More Settings > Outgoing Server and check My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication box
11.Switch to Advanced tab and put in the setting.
- Use the following type of Encrypted connection (for Incoming Server): SSL (port number changes automatically to 993 for IMAP; to 995 for POP)
- Use the following type of Encrypted connection (for Outgoing Server): TLS (you can use ports 25, 465 or 587).
Note: You can also increase server timeout setting to improve performance.
12.Click OK > Next > Finish.
Confirm that the necessary services are enabled for the user’s mailbox:
- Log in to CONTROL PANEL and navigate to the Users & Services > Exchange Mailboxes page (for Exchange 2003, navigate to MS Exchange Server > Mailboxes).
- Click the user’s Display Name to view the settings for the user’s mailbox.
- Click Advanced Settings (for Exchange 2003, switch to the Advanced tab).
- Make sure that POP3 (IMAP4) checkbox is selected. If they are not, select them and click Save Changes.
For Exchange 2003 accounts, make sure that the Enable SMTP Relay checkbox is selected. For Exchange 2007/2010/2013 accounts, you do not need this option, because SMTP Relay is always enabled.
