Sending and receiving email with Outlook 2010
Outlook 2010 is a personal information management application that allows you to email, schedule your calendar, manage contacts, and more. It is part of the Office 2010 suite and is commonly used in the workplace. Here we will use firstname.lastname@example.org as an example.
Step 1: Add an email account
After launching Outlook 2010, click "File" on the top of the client interface, then click "Add Account" to add an email account.
Choose "Manually configure server settings or additional server types" to add email account email@example.com. Click Next to continue.
Choose "Internet Email" and click Next to continue.
Step 2: Set up incoming and outgoing mail server
Choose a name for your account, which would be the name that people see when they receive email from you. Here we will just use Test. Email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. As you continue, you will see incoming and outgoing mail server info. For IMAP account, choose type as "IMAP" and use imap.pivo.com as incoming mail server. Use smtp.pivo.com as outgoing mail server.
For Logon information, enter your full email address, and the password for the email account. After all the fields have been filled out, click on "More Settings" for further configuration.
In the window that shows up "Internet E-mail Settings", click on "Outgoing Server" and set up SMTP authentication as shown in the picture below.
Click on "Advanced" tab, use IMAP SSL port 993 for incoming mail server port and SMTP SSL port 465 for outgoing mail server port. Check the setting one more time and click Ok to save the settings.
Click "Finish" to complete the configuration
Now we will be able to send and receive email using email@example.com.
NOTE: If you are using POP3 protocol, please change the incoming server address to pop.pivo.com, and POP SSL port 995. If you are using non SSL port, please refer here for port information.
