eMail Settings

Electronic mail programs vary in the way you setup preferences and options. If you are still having problems after reading the instructions below, please phone (360) 967-2399 for assistance.

Your Incoming POP3 server is always Your Outgoing mail server (SMTP) will vary according to who you use as your Internet Service Provider (the company that connects your computer to the Internet). The example below uses SBC as the Internet service provider, and is using Outlook as the email software.

By clicking on the More Setting... button in the lower-right of the E-mail Accounts dialog box, you will have access to you Internet E-mail Settings dialog box. Following are examples of settings under the four tabs of the E-mail Settings dialog box.

Under the General tab above, you may want to fill in the Organization and Reply E-mail fields.

Under the Outgoing Server tab above, your Outgoing Server may or may not require authentication. It depends on the requirements of your ISP (Internet Service Provider). Check with them if you require this. If your ISP does require authentication, then your information would like something like the above. If it does NOT, you would simply NOT check the checkbox: "My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication.

Under the Connection tab above, your connection settings may differ from the above example, depending on how you connect to the Internet; which may be through a dial-up connection, a local area network, or some other means. If you use a DSL line to connect to the Internet, you most likely would select "Connect using my local area network (LAN)." If you are using a dial-up modem connection, you would most likely select "Connect using my phone line."

Under the Advanced tab above, if you are having connection problems, you may want to set the Outgoing server (SMTP) field to 587; if that doesn't work, try 25. This may help. Or you may need to contact your Internet Service Provider (ISP) and learn from them which port to use for your "Outgoing server (SMTP)."

After completing all your Internet E-mail Settings, click on the OK button. You will return to the E-mail Accounts dialog box. Click on the Test Account Settings button to see if all your settings will work correctly. If you need further help, phone (360) 967-2399.

Also, you may always access your email from any computer, anywhere in the world, by using the Webmail system. Simply go to then enter:

  • Your individual email box Username (complete email address, such as
  • Your individual email box Password

You now have the choice of 3 different Webmail programs: horde, SquirrelMail, or ROUND CUBE. Click once on one of these options then proceed to use that program.

Previously, we only had horde available. If you continue to use horde, you will now have immediate access to all of your email boxes at once, simply by clicking on the [+] next to Mail in the left-margin heirarchy menus.

When you use Webmail, you are actually viewing the email currently on the email server. You are not downloading it into the computer you're using—only viewing it. When you use another email program, such as Outlook or Outlook Express, you actually download the email into your computer. With Webmail, you don't download the email, but merely view what is on the email server.
