Windows 10 Mail

Steps To Setup Email On Windows 10 Mail

If you have a Windows 10 PC, it comes pre-installed with the Windows Mail App, which you can use to set up your email accounts. Windows 8 and its versions have the Mail App, and you may use this tutorial to set up your email account on Windows 8.

Note: For the SMTP and IMAP protocols, we’ll use SSL Hostnames to configure the email account.

  1. In the search field next to the start menu, type Mail.
  2. In the search results, find the Mail symbol and click it.
  3. Open the Mail app in Windows 10. An account is an option on the left side of the screen. When you click it, a new column will appear on the right. Select Add Account from the drop-down menu.
  4. Select Advanced setup.
  5. Select Internet email.
  6. In the Email Client Settings section below, enter the corresponding hostnames, port numbers, and encryption techniques for the Incoming Mail and Outgoing Mail servers based on your choices. Then press the Next button.
    SSL Email Port Settings
    Outgoing Server SMTPsmtp.domainname.comPort 26/587
    Incoming Server IMAPimap.domainname.comPort 993
    Incoming Server POPpop.domainname.comPort 995
    Non-SSL Email Port Settings
    Outgoing Server SMTPmail.domainname.comPort 25/587
    Incoming Server IMAPmail.domainname.comPort 143
    Incoming Server POPmail.domainname.comPort 110

    Note: In the preceding example, should be substituted with your actual domain name.


  7. Your email account has been configured successfully!
    Click on Done to conclude the process.
  8. Your Email Client now allows you to send and receive emails.
