This guide assumes you have already run the Network/Dial-Up Connection Wizard and have a working Internet connection. If not, please view our guide and configure your dial-up or network connection first.

Step 1:   Open up the Outlook Express application. Click on the "Tools" menu, then click on "Accounts...".

Step 2:   An "Internet Accounts" window will appear. Click on the "Mail" tab at the top.

Step 3:   In the "Internet Accounts" window, click the "Add" button, and select "Mail..." from the drop-down menu.

Step 4:   Enter your full name in the text box that appears as shown. This will be shown on all outgoing e-mails you send, so be sure to type it with proper capitalization. Click the "Next" button when you are finished.

Step 5:   Enter your e-mail address. This is in the form of "" where username is the one you previously typed for your dialup connection. Click the "Next" button when you are finished.

Step 6:   Enter the mail servers as shown and then click the "Next" button.

Step 7:   When prompted for your username and password, enter it exactly as you did in the "Dial-Up Connection Wizard". We recommend enabling the "Remember password" option so you do not have to enter it each time you check your e-mail. However, if you are on a computer with multiple users, you may want to disable this option for security reasons. Click the "Next" button when you are finished.

Step 8:   Your e-mail is now configured. Click the "Finish" button to continue into Outlook Express.

Step 9:   To check your existing email, click the "Send/Recv" button on Outlook Express' toolbar. A window like the following will pop-up and your computer will dialup to DLS.

Step 10:   To compose a new e-mail, click the "New Mail" button on Outlook Express' toolbar. The following window will appear. Type in the e-mail address of the person you wish to send to, type a subject and your message, then click the "Send" button.
