Microsoft Office 365 Email

Postby GlennMUK » Fri Dec 07, 2012 8:08 pm


Has anyone setup the Microsoft Office 365 Email yet?

I have just set up my office account online and trying to connect my POP3 email account that I have hosted with Webworld but it doesnt seem to like the settings i have put in....

It wants the following info:

* Display name: my name
* E-mail address: my email address
* User name: my email address
Password: my email password
* Incoming server:
Authentication: Basic
Encryption: None
* Port: 143

It rejects the above but I don't know what is wrong. Any ideas?
Funnily enough it lets me send email out using the above settings but it just cant connect to the incoming mail server. Could be the port number? Anyone?

Also - I have tried it on incoming mail port number 110 which is the one I use on my outlook client and this is not working either.

Hi Glenn,

You should be using port 110 for POP and port 25 for SMTP. The other settings look fine to me. If your still not getting a connection then perhaps its a firewall issue. Can you access your email through the webmail? If so then everything should be working on the mail server side.
