How to Setup Mail for Windows 10

This guide will walk you through the process of setting up an email address in the default mail application included with Windows 10. 

When you first open the Mail app you should be presented with the "Welcome Screen" which should help guide us through the process of setting up an email address.

Step 1

Let’s start the setup by clicking "Add account".

Step 2

On this next screen (Add an account) you want to select "Advanced setup" to continue.

Step 3

On the next screen, select "Internet email".

Step 4

On this step, we need to enter all the email and server settings for your email account. If you are not sure what the mail settings are or where to find this information please check out our "How to Create an Email Address in Easy Sites". The information required is listed under Help next to the email address you are setting up. 

Once you have found the server settings, enter the information in the relevant fields. Please see the settings below for an example of where everything goes.

Example

Our servers require you use a secure connection to ensure your emails are encrypted. Please ensure the following options are ticked.

  • Outgoing server requires authentication
  • Use the same username and password for sending emails
  • Require SSL for incoming emails
  • Require SSL for outgoing Emails 

Once everything has been entered, please click "Sign in" to continue. 

Step 6

Your email settings will now be checked and if everything tested successfully click "Done" to complete the setup process. Your emails are now setup; Mail will start synchronising all your emails. Click "New mail" to get started. 

And you're done!
