Please don't let the language bother you, this configuration was done on a German Outlook 2007. Anyone should be able to follow the examples, orienting by the dialog shape and button positions.

Manually Configure Email Settings


Step 2. Select Internet E-Mail or IMAP

Select Internet Email IMAP

  • SMTP Server:
  • Username: E-Mail address

Then click "More Settings" (Number 2 in the image below):


Step 4: Switch to the "Outgoing Server" Tab and select "SMTP Requires Authentification", "Same Settings as Incoming Mail"

SMTP requires the same authentication as Incoming Server
