Outlook Express

  • Start Outlook Express. Then click on the [File] menu, [Identities], and [Add New Identity].

  • Type in a name for the Identity. This can be anything you want. (Optional: If you want to require a password to read/receive your email, then check the "Require a Password" box, enter a password in the new window that pops up, and click OK.) Click OK.
  • Next a message will pop up asking if you wish to switch to the new Identity now. Select [Yes].
  • Outlook Express will close and re-open, and the Internet Connection wizard will appear. Click "Create a new Internet Email Account" and click [Yes].
  • Type your name in the Display Name box. Click the Next button.
  • Click "I already have an e-mail address that I'd like to use." Type your email address in the E-mail address box. Click the Next button.
  • Supply the following information:
    My incoming mail is a: POP3
    Incoming mail (POP3, IMAP, or HTTP) server: mail.boreal.org
    Outgoing mail (SMTP) server: mail.boreal.org

    Click the Next button.

  • Supply the following information:
    Account name: (everything before @boreal.org in your email address)
    Password: (your email password)

    Make sure the Remember Password box is checked - this way you won't have to re-type your password every time you check your email. Click the Next button, and click Finish.

  • You're done! To check this email address, when you're in Outlook Express click the [File] menu, [Switch Identity]. Click on the identity for the email you want to read, or click [Main Identity] for the main email address, and click [OK].
