Email


Need help setting up email accounts or mailing lists on the server?


Quick start institutions for any program:
Both incoming and outgoing mail servers are mail.lishost.org
The out going server DOES require authentication.
You may use POP or IMAP.
Your username for the server is your email address % your domain.
ex. My email is [email protected], so my username is blake%example.com.

Below are instructions for
Outlook
Outlook Express
Do not use Thunderbird with LISHost.org


Setting up your LISHost email for Microsoft Outlook:

You can choose either POP3 or IMAP for Server Type:


Some examples for setting up a POP account, you can follow the same instructions for IMAP as well.

Note: Your user name uses a % instead of a @, so if your email address [email protected], you'll need to use blake%example.com as the "User Name."
Note: Now you'll need to click on "More Settings"
The only thing in here you MUST change is on the "Outgoing Server" tab:
Make sure you've checked that box that says "My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication"
You will not be able to send email without checking that box!


Do Not Miss This Step!


Instructions for Outlook express:





Note: Your user name uses a % instead of a @, so if your email address [email protected], you'll need to use blake%example.com as the "User Name."


After you've entered those settings, you'll need to click on the Properties button and make one more change.


Make sure you've checked that box that says "My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication"
You will not be able to send email without checking that box!
