Summary

This article describes how to edit an existing email account in Microsoft Entourage in Mac OS X 10.6. The exact steps to take depend on the email service you use.

Changing your incoming and outgoing mail servers

1. Open Microsoft Entourage (click on it  from the Dock or open it from the Applications folder).

2. Go to the 'Tools' Menu and select 'Accounts'. Double click the account you wish to edit from the mail section of 'Accounts'.

3. To change the incoming mail server or sometimes it's referred to as POP server, edit the 'POP server' field under the receiving mail section of account settings. Please note: mail.centralit.co.uk is only an example. If Central IT provides your company with email services, then your incoming mail server will be your own domain address such as mail.example.co.uk or com.


4. To change your outgoing mail server or sometimes it's referred to as SMTP server, click on the 'SMTP Server' under the sending mail section of account settings. Please note: mail.centralit.co.uk is only an example. If Central IT provides your company with email services, then your outgoing mail server will be your own domain address such as mail.example.co.uk or com.

Click on the 'Advanced sending options' button for entering default port numbers and authentication settings.

5. Once you're happy with your settings click on 'OK' and then close the 'Accounts' window.
