How to set up email in Microsoft Outlook '98


Our Microsoft Outlook 98 tutorial shows how to setup Outlook 98 to retrieve email

  1. Open Microsoft Outlook 98 and choose "Tools" from the menu bar.

  2. Choose "Accounts" and click on the mail tab when the "Internet Accounts" manager window appears.

  3. Click on the "Add" button and then on "Mail". The Internet Connection Wizard will walk you through the setup process.

  4. First, it will ask for a display name. This is what recipients will see in the "From" line when they receive your mail.

  5. Next, the wizard asks for your email address that you want people to reply to.

  6. Next you are asked for your server information. Your incoming mail server is a POP3 and its name is (outgoing is the same, or you can use your internet connection's outgoing server eg. for ADSL connections in South Africa)

  7. Next is your account name, please use the full email address.  Then enter your password.

  8. Next, it will ask for an account name that Outlook 98 will use to refer to this particular account. You can choose whatever you want but we recommend just using your email address.

  9. If you log onto your ISP and then check your mail, choose "I will establish connection manually". If you want Outlook 98 to dial into your ISP for you, then choose "Connect using my phone line". If you choose the latter, you will need to contact your ISP for instructions on configuring your dialer. 

  10. Click on "Finish" and then on "Close".

  11. Now to retrieve your mail, in the Outlook 98 window, choose "Tools" from the menu bar, then select "Send and Receive"

Note: If you have difficulty sending emails, you may need to use a different Outgoing Server. This page explains how to quickly and easily configure your outgoing server.
