Setting Up Entourage 2008

These are the steps you need to follow to set up Entourage 2008 to check your email:

  1. From Start choose Entourage 2008 (it is assumed that you have used this program before so the Internet Connection Wizard is not initiated).
  2. Go to Tools and select Add Account.

  3. Click New.

  4. Select an Account Type and click OK.

  5. Enter a name for your new account in the Account Name field.

    Below is a description of the fields:
    Name Enter your name, your nick name, or your company’s name depending on how you want to be displayed when you send email.
    E-mail Address Enter your e-mail address (in the example we are creating an email account for the imaginary email address [email protected]).
    Account Type Should be IMAP (this allows you to check your email from multiple devices).
    Receiving Mail Your incoming server is mail.mydomain.com, where mydomain.com is the name of your domain.
    Sending Mail (SMTP) We recommend using the Outgoing Mail Server Name of your current Internet Server Provider (ISP). Alternatively you can use mail.mydomain.com (replace mydomain.com with your actual domain).
    Account ID The email address you have been given.
    Password The password is case sensitive. Decide if you want to check the Remember password field.

  6. When you're done, click OK.

Congratulations! You have added your email account to Entourage 2008. You should now be able to use it to manage your email account.
