How to setup your own email address, using SkyUser's SMTP service for Outlook Express

Open Outlook Express

From the top menus choose tools>accounts.

Select mail tab.

Select a mail account and then click properties box on the right hand side.

Select the servers tab, and in outgoing server box enter "mail.skyusermail.com"

Next tick the box at the bottom of the tab labelled "my mail server requires authentication". Click "settings" next to it, and after selecting "log on using" button, enter your username and password as supplied in smtp confirmation message from skyuser. (These are the ones that you sent to SkyUser on your SMTP application, as we no longer send these in the confirmation PM)

Make sure "log on using secure password authentication" is not selected.

Click ok, apply, ok, etc

et voila.

If you have multiple email accounts, you will need to repeat entire procedure for each account listed in the mail accounts tab.

If you need any further help, ask in our forums here.
