Configuring Microsoft Outlook Express



Double-click the "Outlook Express" icon to start Microsoft Outlook Express.

Click the Tools menu, then click Accounts....



On the "Internet Accounts" page, click the Add button, then click the Mail... menu item.


In the "Display Name" box, enter your name as you want it to appear on your
e-mail messages.

Then click the Next button.



Make sure the radio button labeled "I already have an e-mail address that I'd like to use." is selected.

In the "E-mail address" box, enter your e-mail address (which is your Gallatin River username followed by @grics.net).



Make sure the "incoming mail server" pull-down box is set to a POP3 server.

In the
"Incoming mail server" box, enter pop.grics.net.

In the
"Outgoing mail server" box, enter smtp.grics.net.

Then click the Next button.



In the "Account name" box, enter your Gallatin River username.

In the "Password" box, enter your Gallatin River password.

Then click the Next button.



Click the Finish button.


You should now see your new e-mail account (labeled "pop.grics.net") listed in the Accounts window.

Click the Close button.



You are now ready to begin using Outlook Express to send and receive e-mail.

By default, Outlook Express checks for new e-mail messages every 30 minutes. You can change this value by clicking the Tools menu, then clicking the Options... menu item, then changing the value for "Check for new messages every 30 minutes" under the General tab.

You can also check for new e-mail messages manually by clicking the Tools menu, clicking Send and Receive, then clicking the Send and Receive All menu option.

An even faster way to manually check for new
e-mail messages is to press Ctrl-M or the Send/Recv button on the toolbar.
