- Enter the Server Information for Incoming and Outgoing mail server. This information will vary as follows, depending on if you are setting up an @c4.net or @yourdomainame.com Email Account:
For @c4.net Email Accounts:
Incoming mail server = mailman.c4.net
Outgoing mail server (SMTP) = mailman.c4.net
For @yourdomainname.com Email Accounts:
Incoming mail server = mail.yourdomain.com
Outgoing mail server (SMTP) = mail.yourdomain.com

If, however, you would like to have new mail messages deliver to an existing Outlook data file, change that setting in the 'Deliver new messages to' area of this screen. Use the Browse button to locate the existing file you wish to append messages to.
- Click the More Settings… button, and select the Outgoing Server tab
