Configuring Email for Windows & Outlook

To configure your email (on the codeframe hosting service), you will need to have received your email address and password details already – so, if you have those, these are the steps to follow

Navigate to the Control Panel

Control Panel is accessed by pressing the Windows key on your keyboard (or clicking the Windows start button or pressing Ctrl + R) and typing Control Panel

Run the Mail program

If you can see a Search box at the top of the screen, type Mail and hit Enter. Alternatively, locate the View By option and select Large Icons then locate the Mail program in the listing and select it

Create a new profile

  • Click the Show Profiles button
  • Click the Add button
  • Enter any name you like for the profile. (If you are looking for inspiration here, type codeframe)
  • Click Ok
  • Select Manual setup and click Next
  • Choose IMAP and click Next

Enter the Basic Configuration information

  • Enter your name as you would like it displayed
  • Enter your email address
  • Select IMAP
  • Enter the incoming mail server as
  • Enter the outgoing mail server as
  • Enter the Username as your email address (you should have received this from us or your administrator separately)
  • Enter the Password (again, communicated to you separately)

Enter the More Settings information

  • Click More Settings
  • Enter the Organisation and then your email address for Reply Email
  • Select the Outgoing Server tab and check the box named My Outgoing Server requires authentication and ensure that Use same settings as my incoming server is selected
  • Select the Advanced tab
  • Set the Incoming Server number to 993
  • Set the Encrypted connection to SSL
  • Set the Outgoing Server number to 465
  • Set the Encrypted connection to SSL

You’re All Done!

That’s it, all done. You can now click OkNext and Finish to complete the setup

Whilst doing this, the email program will attempt to connect to your mailbox and send and receive an email – hopefully, the tests should pass and you’re good to go!
