Let’s assume Outlook is installed in your system. Now if it’s your first time, open Outlook 2007 first. Immediately a window will appear asking you for setting up your email account. Click on Yes.

A new window will pop up for an Auto Account Setup. Select the Manually configure server settings or additional server types option and click on Next.

A new window will appear to setup Internet E-mail Settings. Though these are the common settings but use the ones provided by your email provider.

Incoming server (POP3): mail.server.com | port 110 | No encrypted connection
But it can also be mail.anotherserver.com | port 995 | encrypted connection: SSL

Outgoing server (SMTP): mail.server.com | port 587 | No encrypted connection
But it can also be mail.anotherserver.com | port 465 | encrypted connection: SSL

It will be required to provide Logon Information with your username (email) and password (provided by your email provider)

One thing to remember that never leave copies of messages in the server, otherwise your server account will keep pilling up emails until its full and it will results in errors and preventing you from sending and receiving emails. You may delete them from your Outlook’s inbox but that will make no difference.
