How do I setup my mailbox in Outlook?

We make use of ‘autodiscover’ technology, so that in the majority of cases, Microsoft Outlook can set up your account for you with only an email address and a password.

Automatic Setup

  • In Outlook, choose the File tab
  • Under ‘Account Information’, choose Add Account
  • On the Auto Account Setup page, enter your name, email address, and password, and then choose Next
  • Choose Finish

 

Manual Setup

If automatic setup failed, you can choose Manual setup or additional server types to enter your settings manually. Use these settings:

Account type: IMAP
Incoming mail server: imap.stackmail.com.
Outgoing mail server: smtp.stackmail.com.
Incoming server port (IMAP): 993
Use the following type of encrypted connection: SSL
Outgoing server port (SMTP): 587
Use the following type of encrypted connection: TLS

When setting up your account, please choose More Settings > Outgoing Server and check the box for ‘My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication’.

If you experience any problems with the connection or receive a certificate warning, please disable SSL/TLS encryption and change the incoming server port to 143.
