Setting up Microsoft Outlook 2013 to receive mail

To read your email messages using Microsoft Outlook, you will need to configure several Microsoft Outlook email service options. Please note that there are different versions of Outlook, so sometimes the names of menu items or fields are a little different from our instructions here.  These instructions apply to Outlook 2013.

Please Note: We provide online tutorials to help you configure your email software as a courtesy. However, our support staff are unable to provide any support on how to use or configure third-party software on your computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone. We will provide support for any issues relating to the software and services on our servers, but you will need to contact the software manufacturer or visit their relevant online support pages for help with the software that they provide.
