Set up email with outlook


#1

Trying to get my email account set up to use with Outlook 2007. I have tried everything. I am able to send mail with web mail.

Getting errors that outlook cannot connect.

incoming: mail.mydomain.com
outgoing: mail.mydomain.com

Not sure but I have other accounts that use just mydomain.com and I have another that uses smtpauth.earthlink.net as outgoing.

I’m not sure whether you have read this
http://wiki.dreamhost.com/Outlook_Express

First, you need to replace “mydomain” with your actual domain name. (may be a redundant tip :stuck_out_tongue: )

Second, the user name should be either your full email address or the name you see in DH panel --> Mails --> Manage Mails

It sounds as though you may need to change the port usage as indicated in the wiki to get Outlook to work with your DreamHost account for outgoing mail.

I believe that Earthlink disables port 25 :wink:
