Microsoft Outlook 2003 Setup

Click on "Tools" and then "E-mail Accounts..." On the "E-mail Accounts" window, choose "Add a new e-mail account" and then click "Next" Here you have the choice to setup a POP3 account or an IMAP account.

(POP3 downloads your emails off of our server and onto your computer. Any other device will not receive the new emails.)

(IMAP will only download a copy of what's on the server. All emails stay on the server until you specifically delete and purge them. This is useful to use if you have more than one device checking your email.)

Click "Next" and start filling out your account informationhere:
