Unicom Email Setup

How to set up your Unicom mailbox in Outlook 2003

  1. Open Outlook 2003, click Tools in the top menu, then click E-mail Accounts.

  2. Select Add a new e-mail account, then click the Next button.



  3. Select POP3 from the list of available server types, then click Next.



  4. Enter your name in the Your Name text-box and your email address in the E-mail Address text-box.

  5. Enter your full email address in the User Name text-box and your mailbox password in the Password text-box.

  6. The incoming mail server is dependent on the domain of your Unicom email address.  The domain of your email address is whatever follows the “@” symbol.  You should enter ‘mail.domain’ in as the incoming mail server, for example;


    If your email address ends with “@unicombox.co.uk” then type 'mail.unicombox.co.uk' for your incoming mail server.


    If your email address ends with “@unicombox.com” then type 'mail.unicombox.com' for your incoming mail server.


    If your email address ends with “@unicomemail.co.uk” then type 'mail.unicomemail.co.uk' for your incoming mail server.

  7. In the Incoming mail server (POP3) text-box, enter mail.unicombox.co.uk.

  8. In the Outgoing mail server (SMTP) text-box, enter smtp.dslconnect.co.uk.

  9. Click the More Settings button.

  10. Click the Outgoing Server tab.

  11. Select My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication, ensure Use same settings as my incoming mail server is selected, then click the OK button.



  12. Click the Test Account Settings button and correct any errors that it identifies.



    Note: Outlook's Test Account Settings procedure occasionally fails even if the account settings are correct. If it repeatedly fails and you are certain that the account settings are correct, skip to step 12, then test your setup by sending an email to yourself.

  13. When the test gives you the message Congratulations! All tests completed successfully, click the Next button, then click the Finish button.
