For the instructions for Windows Live Mail, click here.
These instructions are for NCF members who wish to setup Microsoft Outlook Express for the first time. If you have *already* setup Microsoft Outlook Express and are having trouble sending mail, try these steps.
Configure Outlook Express to send and receive email at NCF by the following:
|Display name:||Enter your name as you would like it to appear on outgoing mail|
|Your email address:||accountID@ncf.ca (e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org)
Click here to reserve a personalized email alias.
|Mail server type:||Select POP3 or IMAP (what's the difference?)|
|Your incoming email server:||mail.ncf.ca|
|Your outgoing email server:||mail.ncf.ca|
|Your account name
|Enter your NCF accountID (e.g. ab123) and
'Remember password' is recommended. Do not select "Log on using Secure Password Authentication".
The above configuration should work even if you are using a wireless laptop at an internet cafe. The transfer of your password and email between your computer and NCF will be protected by SSL.
