The following is a general guide to setting up Microsoft’s Outlook Express for Macintosh version 5 to enable you to send and receive e-mails. 

It is recommended that you retain your existing e-mail account with your ISP, and not remove it from your mail accounts - this will allow you to continue receiving mail sent to your old e-mail address(es).

Step 1

Having Outlook Express loaded, from the main window you will be able to set up Outlook Express to send and retrieve mail from the e-mail account you have hosted with cheynegang.co.uk. Click on Tools:Accounts to enter into this set-up process.

Step 2

Here a pop-up screen will appear with 3 tabs - Mail, News, Directory Service - Click on the first of these tabs - 'Mail' - then click on 'New' in the top left corner.

Step 3

The display name is the name that will appear in the 'From' field every time you send an e-mail. In the available space, enter the name you wish to appear (John Cheyne is used in this example) and then click on the right arrow to continue.

Step 4

This step requires you to enter the email address you are configuring this account for. Click on the radio button 'I already have an email address that I'd like to use'. In this case, the account is being configured for John at the domain cheynegang.co.uk, hence the email john@cheynegang.co.uk. Type in the name of the email address you are configuring (e.g. john@cheynegang.co.uk) and click on the right arrow to continue.

Step 5

Sending and retrieving mails requires the use of e-mail servers. For your cheynegang.co.uk e-mail account, the Incoming mail server is a POP server, this is the default server selected in Outlook Express, however if this drop down menu option has been changed click on it and change it to POP.

In the next two boxes, the addresses for the incoming and outgoing mail servers are required.

The incoming mail server address is : pop.oneandone.co.uk
The outgoing mail server address is : auth.smtp.oneandone.co.uk

Click on the right arrow to proceed to the next page.

Step 6

Here you must have your e-mail account ID and password for the account you are configuring ready. Your e-mail address, account ID and password should be sent to you, if not, e-mail me.

Enter your account ID and password details, and it is up to if you wish for the system to remember your password or if you want to re-enter it every time accessing your mail. Click on the right arrow to proceed to the next step.

Step 7

Enter an account name, this can be your new e-mail address or your own name to identify this account. Click on 'Configure account manually'. DO NOT click on 'Finish' at this point.

Setting Your New Mailbox with Authentication Mode

Following using the Account Setup Assistant, you will now need to set up your new account as your default mailbox and to set to authentication mode, i.e. our mailboxes require a password when mail is sent out as well as for receiving mail. You should now have the following display.

Click on the panel marked 'Click here for advanced sending options'. Ensure that the option that the server requires authentication, and also check that it is set to use the same account ID and password for receiving.

Click on OK in all boxes to finish.

You are done! You account is now fully configured and ready to start sending and receiving mails through cheynegang.co.uk and 1&1 with Microsoft's Outlook Express for Macintosh software.
