Configure my Hosting email accounts in Outlook

Configuring the mail account in Outlook

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

The configuration shown in this manual requires the installation of a TLS security certificate for your Hosting email

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

  • Incoming mail server: mail.domain.com
    • IMAP port: 993
    • POP3 port: 995
  • Outgoing mail server: mail.domain.com
    • SMTP port: 465
  • Mail account
  • Password
  • Protocol: SSL/TLS

To view the connection data of your email account from SWPanel you can check this manual.

First, let's see 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 configured.

Configuring an email account for the first time

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

The automatic account configuration will open, we will have to fill it with the requested fields, Name (it is not necessary to specify any specific data, we can put the name we want), the email address to be configured and the password to access the account:

We remind you that from SWPanel you will not be able to see the information about the password of the email account, because, in compliance with the ISO 27001, the LOPD and the RGPD, we do not store or provide personal passwords and we do not have access to the passwords of email accounts, much less provide them.

Once the automatic configuration is completed, an alert message will be displayed specifying that it has been successfully configured. The account, by default, will be configured in IMAP. In order to check that the configuration has been carried out correctly and to be able to change the account settings to POP3, click on the "Change account settings" checkbox and click Next:

The configuration screen will open. Next we verify that the server data, the incoming and outgoing mail ports and the incoming mail protocol are the desired ones. We will also configure the mail protocol, in this case we will configure the account with IMAP protocol. Afterwards, click on Finish:
