Email POP Account Setup: Windows 10

Windows 8.1 removed support for the POP we supply as standard in our hosting packages but it seems that Windows 10 has re-instated it.

First of all you’ll need;
Your email address which is also your username – the full email address
Your password
The mail servers generally mail.yourdomain.co.uk

1

Open the Windows 10 Email app either from the Start menu or your list of apps.

Once open, press the Settings icon, which is located in the bottom left corner.

On the menu which pops up from the right hand side, choose  Accounts.
Press Add Account
Press Advanced Setup (at the bottom of the list)
Press Internet email

You are now ready to set up the account.

First, choose a name for the account that Windows can use to label it and make it distinctive from any other providers you may have already added previously.

Next, fill out your username and password combo, which gets you into the server and retrieves any mail stored in the mailbox.

Choose POP3 from the options that follow

After that, comes the SMTP and POP server information

The completed form should look something like this, with the username, password, and completed SMTP account info.

Once these are all cleared, click Sign-in, and you’re good to go.

If the account was added successfully, you should now see it appear on the right-hand pop up bar in Windows Mail which lists all accounts tied to Windows Mail.

Note that Windows 10 Mail App does not have the option Leave a copy of messages on the server, that is necessary in the Microsoft Outlook email client.
