Setting up authorisation to send email in Outlook and Outlook Express

You need "authorisation" to send mail though hosted email servers such as Accentika Internet. Our helpdesk team explains how to do this with Outlook and Outlook Express

To send mail through Accentika Internet servers, you need to use your account username and password to set up your email client for smtp authorisation.

Here are some guide settings for Outlook and Outlook Express.


Open Outlook and click "Tools" in the menu bar, then select "Account Settings."

In the "Account Settings" window, from the E-mail tab click on the "New" button. 

On the bottom of the "Add New E-mail Account" check the box for "Manually configure server setting or additional server types", then click "Next >". 

Make sure that "Internet E-mail" is selected then click "Next >". 

In the "Add New E-mail Account" window fill in the below setting and then select the More Settings button. 

Your Name: ****

E-mail address: ****

Account Type:*****

Incoming mail server:******

User Name: ****

Password: ****

In the "Internet E-mail Settings" window select the "Outgoing Server" tab. Check the box for "My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication" and fill in the bullet for "Use same settings and my incoming mail server". Click OK.

Now click "Finish" on the following window.

To set SMTP authorisation, do the following:

Select "Accounts" from the Tools drop-down menu in the menu bar.

On the Internet Accounts window, select your mail account and click "Properties" to edit the email settings.

On the "Properties" page that appears, choose the "Servers" tab.

Check "My server requires authentication" box and click "Settings" on the right.

On the "Outgoing Mail Server" window that shows you can:

- use the same settings as incoming server;

- enter account name and input another password for outgoing email.

Note: make sure to check Remember password if you don't want to enter password each time you send out email.

Click OK.

Back on the Properties page, click Apply and OK to save settings and then close all dialog boxes.
