Summary

This article describes how to edit an existing email account in Microsoft Outlook 2003 in Windows XP. The exact steps to take depend on the email service you use.

1. Open Microsoft Outlook 2003

2. In Microsoft Outlook, from the Tools menu, select E-Mail Accounts.

Then select 'view or change existing e-mail accounts' from the wizard window.

3. Double click on the email account you want to change.

4. To change the incoming mail server or sometimes it's referred to as POP server, edit the 'Incoming mail server (POP3)' field under 'Server Information.' Please note: pop.secureserver.net 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.

Please note: smtpout.secureserver.net 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.

Click on the 'more settings' button for entering default port numbers and authentication settings. Click OK once done.


6. Click on 'Next' and then 'Finish.'
