This page explains how to set up IncrediMail to send and receive email for a POP mailbox that you've created.
Before you continue, you should enter your email address (the address you want to set up in IncrediMail) in the box above. Entering your email address makes sure that the instructions below are correct.
1. Start the IncrediMail program.
You can use the Start menu to start IncrediMail. When it opens, click Tools, then Accounts from the menu bar:
2. The "Mail Accounts" window will open.
Click the Add Button:
3. The "Account Wizard" will open.
Select Let me configure settings myself and press Next:
4. Enter your name and email address.
Enter your name. This is the name that other people will see when you send them email. It should be your real name, such as "John Smith" or "Joan of Arc".
5. Enter the Incoming and Outgoing mail servers.
IncrediMail will try to do an online search for your server settings. If the search takes more than a few seconds, press the Skip button.
Enter the settings like this:
- My incoming mail server type is: POP3
- Incoming mail server: mail.tigertech.net
- Outgoing mail server: mail.tigertech.net
6. Enter your Username and Password.
The "Username" is the same as your email address. The password is your email password.
7. The final screen of the wizard appears.
Click OK to close the wizard.
While the wizard has collected the basic information needed to receive email, a couple of other changes are needed to make sure that you can send mail. Continue with the steps below to finish setting up IncrediMail.
8. Open the Properties window for your account.
Select the account you just added, then press Properties:
9. The Properties window appears.
Click the Servers tab and check the box for "My server requires authentication":
Then press More Settings and make sure the option to "Use same settings as my incoming mail server" is selected:
Press OK to continue.
10. Change the SMTP port number.
Click on the Advanced tab and change the Outgoing mail (SMTP) port number from 25 to 587:
The Delivery section settings are optional, and you can select the option(s) you would like. However, you should probably check the Leave a copy of messages on server option if you intend to read the mail using another mail program or our webmail pages: If you don’t, Incredimail will delete the server messages when it copies them to your computer, and the other program or webmail won’t see them at all.
11. Close the setup windows.
Press OK, then Close to close the Mail Accounts window.
Setup is complete
You're finished! Try sending yourself a test email message to make sure it works.
