Configure email accounts of my Shared Hosting: Outlook

Configure the email account in Outlook

In offices and personal computers, one of the most used programs is Microsoft Outlook as a mail manager for corporate mail accounts or personalized mail.

The data that we must take into account for the configuration of the email account are the following:

  • Incoming mail server
  • Outgoing mail server
  • Account name
  • Password
  • SMTP port: 587
  • IMAP port: 143
  • POP3 port: 110
  • Protocol: Start TLS

Let's see first how to configure Outlook if it is the first time you access it. Later, we will see how to configure it if we already have an account previously configured.

Set up an email account for the first time

We open the application. Your welcome to Outlook message will open. Click on next:

Automatic account setup will open. We must fill it in with the requested fields, Name (it is not necessary to specify any specific information, we can put the name we want), the email address to configure and the password to access the account:

We remember you that from SWPanel you will not be able to see the information about the email account password, because in compliance with ISO 27001, the LOPD and the RGPD, we do not store or provide personal codes, as well as we do not have access to the Email account keys we don't even provide them.

The moment the automatic configuration starts, Outlook will detect that the SSL certificate (if it has a certificate) is not "trusted". As in the case of Google, Microsoft only detects its own certificates as trusted certificates, that is, those that correspond to "hotmail.com", so we should not worry or think that our certificate is invalid, Unlike.

In order to proceed without any problem, we must follow a few extra steps.

Once the message appears, click on "see certificate":

In the certificate information window, we check that the data of the server for which the certificate is issued are correct (our Cloud mail server should appear under the name of the certificate), as well as the expiration date of the certificate, and click in "install certificate":
