Using Microsoft Outlook 2007 - configured for IMAPS.

To configure Outlook 2007 to collect your email, using IMAPS, you will need to complete the following steps.

 

  1. Open Outlook 2007 and from the ‘tools’ menu choose ‘Account settings’.

 

  1. In the ‘Account settings’ dialogue box select the ‘E-mail’ tab and click the ‘New’ option.
  2. In the ‘Auto account setup’ dialogue box check ‘Manually configure server settings’ and then press the ‘Next’ button.
    NOTE – If you already have an account configured you will see another dialogue box first, simply check ‘Microsoft exchange, POP3, IMAP or HTTP’ and press the ‘NEXT’ button.
  3. In the ‘Choose E-mail service’ dialogue box check ‘Internet E-mail’ and then press the ‘Next’ button.
  4. In the ‘Internet E-mail settings’ dialogue box enter your name and email address, Select ‘IMAP’ for the account type, enter ‘mail.lumison.net’ as both the incoming and outgoing server, enter your account username/password and then press the ‘More settings’ button.
    Note that ‘mail.lumison.net’ will only work if you are connected directly to the Lumison network. If you normally connect to us but are travelling you can use authenticated SMTP otherwise please contact your ISP for their SMTP server details.
  5. In the ‘More settings’ dialogue box select the ‘Advanced’ tab, change the encrytion type to ‘SSL’ for the incoming server (IMAP), note that the port number changes to 993, then press the ‘OK’ button.
  6. In the ‘Internet E-mail settings’ dialogue box press the ‘Test account settings’ button, ensure that both send / receive pass and then press the ‘close’ button. NOTE – If either of the tests fail you will need to retrace your steps to find the error.
  7. Once the tests have passed press the ‘Next’ button.
  8. You will be advised that account setup is complete, press the ‘Finish’ button.
  9. In the ‘Account settings’ dialogue box press the ‘Close’ button.
  10. You will now see the new IMAP folder appearing in the ‘mail folders’ window. Note that unlike POP access these folders relate directly to what is currently stored on the mail server.
