MS Outlook XP (2002) setup

Configuring Microsoft Outlook XP (2002)

1.  To begin configuring Microsoft Outlook 2000 with your Fire2Wire account, (1) right click the Microsoft Outlook icon on your desktop, and (2) choose Properties from the menu that pops up.
(1) (2)

2.  On the "Mail" dialog box that comes up, click the Add button.

3.  Type a name to refer to your mail account and press OK.  You might name your profile "Fire2Wire Email", "Work mail", your email address, or whatever else will help you identify this account in the future.

4.  Since we are setting up the email account on this computer for the first time, select "Add a new e-mail account", and click Next.

5.  This dialog box presents you several choices as to the type of server we operate.  Select POP3, and click Next.  If you have a particular reason to, you may choose IMAP if you like.

6.  This is where you put in the important information.  Please make sure you spell everything properly, and remember that your logon information is cAse SeNSiTivE.

Most likely your "User Name" and password are all lower case, unless you requested otherwise when your account was set up on our system.

Both the incoming and outgoing mail server fields should have "mail.fire2wire.com" (no quotes) in them.

When you have finished this, please click on More Settings.

7.  On the "Internet E-Mail Settings" dialog box, click on the "Outgoing Server" tab.  Please check the box which reads "My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication".   The default choice of "Use same settings as my incoming mail server" should be fine.  Click on OK after this.

8.  Please verify once again that all the information on the "E-mail Accounts" dialog box is accurate, and click Next.  The computer will now inform you that it has collected all the information it needed.  Simply click Finish.

9.  You should now see the profile name that you created earlier.  Simply dismiss this dialog box by pressing OK.  Outlook XP (2002) is now ready for use.
