4. If asked whether you'd like to open this particular account automatically every time you start Outlook Express, click Yes (if you do) or No (if you don't).

If you don't want to be asked this question again, click to check the Always perform this check... box.

5. Check When Outlook Express starts, go directly to my Inbox.

Outlook Express directs all incoming mail to the Inbox, so it makes sense to bypass this opening page.

If you don't see the list of folders and contacts on the left, click Layout on the View menu. Click Contacts and Folder List to check them, and then click OK.

Set Up an Outlook Express E-Mail Account

The Internet Connection Wizard makes short work of setting up your online mailbox by walking you through each step for every e-mail account you set up.

1. Before you get going, make sure you know your email address along with your password.

This is information about the e-mail servers:

The type of e-mail server you use: POP3
The name of the incoming e-mail server: mail.erath.net
The name of the outgoing e-mail server: mail.erath.net

Second, information about your account:

Your account name will be your username with @erath.net and your password


2. Start Outlook Express, and on the Tools menu, click Accounts.

If the Internet Connection Wizard starts up automatically, skip ahead to step 4.

3. Click Add, and then click Mail to open the Internet Connection Wizard.
Mail option from the Add button

4. On the Your Name page of the wizard, type your name as you want it to appear to everyone who gets e-mail from you, and then click Next.

Most people use their full name, but you can use any name—even a nickname—that people will recognize.

5. On the Internet Explorer Address page, type your e-mail address, and then click Next.
6. On the E-mail Server Names page, fill in the Incoming mail, and then click Next.

7. On the Internet Mail Logon page, type your account name and password.

Note: If you're concerned about break-ins to your e-mail, click to clear the check in the Remember Password box. You'll then be prompted for the password each time you send or retrieve mail.

8. Click Next, and then click Finish.

You're ready to send your first e-mail!
