There are a lot of webmail services available on the internet, but for someone who uses Windows Outlook, these webmail services become very inconvenient. Outlook will enable you to keep web browsing and email services as two distinct separate operations. Sympatico is one such webmail service. But the question is, how do you configure the Sympatico account to your Outlook program?
Well, all you have to do is use the Outlook settings procedure to configure the Sympatico account. To perform this configuration, you will have to know a few server addresses for Sympatico. No worries, we have found those server addresses. You will learn about them as you read on.
Let’s get straight into the Outlook settings procedure.
Outlook settings procedure to configure Sympatico email account
- To start off with the Outlook settings procedure, you have to open the Windows Outlook. Go to “Files” option and select the “Account Settings” option. Click on “New”.
- Enter your Sympatico log in information which includes your name and email ID. To proceed with the Outlook settings procedure, select the “Manual Configuration” option. At the mail-server setup, enter “POP3”.
- The next step in the Outlook settings procedure is to enter your “Incoming mail” address and “Outgoing mail” address. Enter the address for “Incoming mail” as “pophm.sympatico.ca” (this was the server address that was to be found earlier). Enter the address for “Outgoing mail” as “smtphm.sympatico.ca”. Note that, while entering both the server addresses, don’t use quotes.
- Click on the “Require logon using Secure Password Authentication” option and click on the “Next” option. In order to complete the Outlook settings procedure, just click on finish.
If it wasn’t for the Outlook settings procedure, this would have become an impossible task. That should be all the help you need to configure your Sympatico email account in Windows Outlook.
