HOW DO I configure Outlook Express for Windows?

Step 1: Enable POP settings in webmail
Note: If you have already enabled POP settings in the webmail, head down to step 2 here.
  1. Go to www.dishmail.net and login.
  2. If taken to the Start Page, click the Mail link in the banner. If taken to webmail directly, proceed.
  3. Select Settings at the top left of the screen.

  4. On the Settings page, select “Forwarding and POP/IMAP” at the top.

  5. In the “POP Download” section, select the radio button for “Enable POP for all mail”

  6. Click the dropdown box next to “When messages are accessed with POP” and pick either Keep, Archive, or Delete. These mean that when the email client downloads email:
    1. Keep keeps the downloaded email in the webmail inbox for later access.
    2. Archive keeps the downloaded email in webmail, but removes them from the webmail inbox. You can access archived email in webmail by selecting “All Mail” from the left selections.
    3. Delete removes the downloaded email from webmail. Those emails will not be available in webmail or for downloading from another client.
  7. Select “Save Changes”

Step 2: Configure the email client

Generic settings for all clients

Account Name: your full Dishmail email address (username@dishmail.net)
Email Address: your full Dishmail email address (username@dishmail.net)
Password: your Dishmail password

Incoming Mail (POP3) Server:
pop.gmail.com
Select option to use SSL
Use port 995

Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server:
smtp.gmail.com
Select option to use authentication (for the mail server, not “Secure Password Authentication”)
Select option to use TLS, STARTTLS, or SSL
Use port 587 or port 465 (choose one)

For Outlook Express users, there are two tools to auto-configure your email client. Please remember that the customer needs to enable POP forwarding in webmail first.
If you have not created a DISHMail.net account in Outlook Express, download the DISHMail.exe file.
If you have created a DISHMail.net account in Outlook Express and need to convert the settings to work with Google, download the DISHMailConv.exe file.
