Please note that this tutorial shows how to setup a basic POP connection in Outlook, using your own ISP's server for sending out emails. However there are a vast number of different ways you can configure your email, as well as a vast number of different email clients and versions. You can also use IMAP instead of POP. For specific support on configuring your email software, please refer to your software vendors instructions or the person you use for your computer support, for specific support for the software client you are using. All the different email server settings you need for configuring your email can be found at http://www.knowledgebase.loungenetwork.co.nz/index.php?op=view&t=377 . If you are not sure if you are using the right username and password, you can test it by logging into webmail at www.controlpanel.co.nz
