up your AESOP email using Microsoft Outlook 2003 and Outlook XP
Step 1. Open Microsoft Outlook and click TOOLS, then EMAIL ACCOUNTS
Step 2. Click on ADD A NEW E-MAIL ACCOUNT if you are adding a new account from scratch. If you are simply changing your existing Outlook settings, click VIEW OR CHANGE EXISTING EMAIL ACCOUNTS and skip ahead to Step 4.
Step 3: Choose either POP3 (default) or IMAP. POP3 downloads the messages to your PC and deletes them from the server. This is the standard configuration for users with one PC in one office. If you have a reason to want to keep messages on the server, for instance if you have multiple offices and check mail from multiple computers, you may want to choose IMAP. Consult your local computer support personnel for details.
Step 4. The next dialog box window should look like this one. Enter the settings below:
- In the Your Name text field, enter your full name as you would want others to see it, such as "Jane Smith"
- Enter pop.aesop.rutgers.edu if you are using POP3 (See step 2) or imap.aesop.rutgers.edu if you are using IMAP.
- Enter your Rutgers e-mail address, e.g. email@example.com
- The Outgoing mail server (SMTP) should read mail.aesop.rutgers.edu.
- Under Logon Information , enter your AESOP username and password.
Step 5. Click on MORE SETTINGS on the above screen, and this screen will appear. Choose the tab labeled OUTGOING SERVER, and check the box next to MY OUTGOING SERVER (SMTP) REQUIRES AUTHENTICATION. Make sure the radio button next to USE SAME SETTINGS AS MY INCOMING MAIL SERVER is also checked.
Step 6. On the same screen, click on ADVANCED, check both boxes next to THIS SERVER REQUIRES AN ENCRYPTED CONNECTION (SSL). The port number next to the incoming server should change automatically to 995 (for POP3) or 993 (for IMAP). For the Outgoing Server, you will need to change the port to 465. Moving the Server Timeout Slider all the way to the right (10 minutes) is also recommended.
Step 7. Click OK to close that window, and click NEXT AND FINISH to save changes.
That should be it. If you have any problems, please contact your local computing support personnel or Karl Lindauer at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 848/932-4116.
