This tutorial assumes you have already created your new email account in your web hosting account…typically through your hosting control panel.
Start by clicking the TOOLS LINK at the top screen menu bar.
The INCREDIMAIL ACCOUNT WINDOW will open.
Select CONFIGURE SETTINGS MANUALLY then click NEXT.
Enter the NAME you would like to appear in the FROM FIELD of outgoing messages.
Next enter your NEW EMAIL ADDRESS in the box provided. Click NEXT.
Now you have to enter your INCOMING POP3 AND OUTGOING SMTP MAIL SERVER NAMES.
These server names will have been provided to you in your welcome email and oftentimes are simply mail.yourdomain.com.
Choose POP3 for the incoming mail server setting. Now enter our INCOMING (POP3) AND OUTING (SMTP) SERVER SETTINGS in the provided boxes.
Now enter the EMAIL USER NAME as provided to you by your hosting provider. This may be the entire email address or just the user name prefix.
Enter your EMAIL PASSWORD in the provided box.
The email account has been set up but there’s one more step. Click the PROPERTIES button.
Click on the SERVERS tab near the top of the window.
Make sure the outgoing mail server (SMTP) AUTHENTICATION box is checked.
SMTP AUTHENTICATION means that IncrediMail will login to your mail server even when sending emails (not just receiving) ensuring that you are the ONLY one that can send emails from your account.
Click the MORE SETTINGS button. Most SMTP servers use the SAME USERNAME AND PASSWORD as the POP3 servers.
Click OK. Then click OK again.
That’s it! You’ve successfully setup an email account and can now start sending and receiving emails from that account from IncrediMail.
