Unicom Email Setup

How to set up your Unicom mailbox in Outlook 2007.

  1. Open Outlook 2007. When the Startup Wizard displays, click Next.

    Note: If the Startup Wizard doesn't open automatically, select Account Settings from the Tools menu. Click New. In the Add New E-mail Account dialog box, select Microsoft Exchange, Pop3, IMAP, or HTTP, then click Next.

  2. On the Choose E-mail Service page, select ensure Microsoft Exchange, POP3, IMAP, or HTTP is selected to indicate you want to configure an email account, and then click Next.



  3. On the Auto Account Setup page do not enter any information. Instead, at the bottom of the page, select Manually configure server settings or additional server types, and then click Next.



  4. On the Choose E-mail Service page, select Internet E-mail, and then click Next.

  5. On the Internet E-mail Settings page, enter your email account information as follows:

    Your Name
    Enter your first and last name

    Email Address
    Enter your Unicom email address

    Account Type
    Select POP3

    Incoming mail server
    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.

    Outgoing mail server
    Type 'smtp.dslconnect.co.uk' for your outgoing mail server

    User Name
    Enter your unicombox email address again

    Password
    Enter your unicombox mailbox password

  6. Select the Remember Password checkbox if you wish (not recommended on a shared computer), and then click More Settings.



  7. In the Internet E-mail Settings window, click More Settings... and go to the Outgoing Server tab. Check My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication and select Use same settings as my incoming mail server.

  8. Go to the Advanced tab. Verify that you have 110 for your incoming server (POP3) and 80 for your outgoing server (SMTP), and then click OK.

  9. Click Test Account Settings. Microsoft will send itself a message to test your incoming and outgoing capabilities. Once this is complete, click Next.

  10. Click Finish.
