Click ‘Next’ and on the following screen you will need to enter all the account settings. Under ‘User Information’ type your name as you want it to appear on emails in people’s inboxes when they receive an email from you. Underneath this type your email address.

Under ‘Server Information’ make sure that POP3 is selected and type mail.lumison.net as your incoming mail server. If you are using a Lumison internet connection then your outgoing server (SMTP) should also be set to mail.lumison.net. If you are not using a Pulsant internet connection you should use your own ISP’s outgoing mail server(SMTP). For example if your internet is provided by BT then you should contact them and find out what you need to type in the outgoing mail server field. If you are not using a Lumison internet connection and would still like to use a Lumison SMTP server please see this article on how to do this.

Under ‘Logon Information’ type the username of your Lumison POPbox and then the password. You can choose whether to tick the ‘Remember password’ option. Ticking this is more convenient but less secure. Do not tick the box for ‘Secure Password Authentication’.

Once you have done all this click the ‘Test Account Settings’ button on the right-hand side.
