The instructions assume you have Outlook 6 / Outlook 6 Express or newer. Different versions and releases of Outlook have variations in the layout, fields, and field labels. If you cannot translate from these setup instructions to your version, contact Mindwatering Support.

Notes:
These settings assume you have already set your mail using the new account wizard, and are needing to adjust your settings accordingly.
If you have not done so, go through the basic wizard setup. See basic setup instructions by clicking this document link: Database 'Support Reference', View 'Support Library\Users\Email Setup and FAQs', Document 'Outlook Express 6.x'.

For these instructions, we are assuming your domain is "mwclient.com" and your e-mail address is "coolperson@mwclient.com".

Settings for secure (SSL) based POP and SMTP:

1.
Start Outlook if not already running.
2.
On the menu bar, choose Tools --> Accounts.
3.
On the Internet Accounts dialog, choose the Mail Tab (or All tab).
4.
Highlight your Mindwatering-based domain and click the 'Properties' button.
5.
In the Account Properties dialog, verify your settings for the account are formatted the same. Make proper adjustments for your actual name, e-mail, and domain name:

In the From drop down combo-box, select the Mindwatering-based account (e.g. MWClient).
6b.
Add a subject and test body.
6c.
Click the 'Send' button.
6d.
Note: Unless you have purchased your own SSL key (you would know if you did), you probably will get a dialog that says the SSL does not match your domain name. Afterwards, the message should send correctly.

If you get an error, check for typos in your Account settings. If none found, contact Mindwatering support for more assistance.
