The Internet E-mail Settings Dialog Box
The information that you entered in the "How to Configure the
Internet E-mail Information Service" section is added to various
tabs in the Internet E-mail Settings dialog box. This
is where you make modifications and changes to your Internet E-mail
The General tab is the location that you use to
rename your e-mail account.
- Mail Account: Type a name for this account.
- Organization: The name of your company; not a required entry.
- Reply E-mail: This is optional and only used if you want replies
to your messages sent to another e-mail address.
Outgoing Server Tab
The Outgoing Server tab is new for Outlook 2002. The
Test Account Settings button sets all required fields
on this tab.
- The My server requires authentication check box: Click to select
this check box to turn this setting on, and to select the type of
log on authentication your server requires.
- The Log on using Secure Password Authentication check box. Click
to select this check box only if NCW-Online instructs you to. Very few
providers use this setting.
- The Log onto incoming mail server before sending mail check box.
NCW-Online requires that you receive messages first. It implies that
you are an authenticated user, and are not using the ISP to send
unwanted commercial messages (SPAM) to unsuspecting recipients.
- Connection Section The Connection tab contains
information about how to connect to your e-mail server. There are
three ways to connect to your ISP's e-mail server. Select one of the
appropriate connection type listed in this section.
- Connect using my local area network (LAN): This connection
allows you to log on to your e-mail server through your existing
network connection. Your network configuration must support access
to the Internet. Please see your network administrator for more
- Connect using my phone line: The Internet Mail Service looks for
a Dialup Networking connection to establish a log on with your
ISP. Once you are logged on to your ISP, it attempts to connect to
your ISP's e-mail server. If this section is not available (grayed
out), it may indicate that the Microsoft Windows Dialup Networking
feature is not installed on your computer. Please refer to the
"If Dialup Networking Is Not installed" section of this
article for more information.
- Connect Using Internet Explorer's or a 3rd Party Dialer: If you
click to select this option, Outlook uses a default connection
method that has already been configured.
- Modem Section
- After you click Connect using my phone line, you must define a
Dialup Networking connection to use. You can select an existing
connection from the list, or you can click Add to
create a new connection.
- To edit the properties of a connection, use the drop-down list box
to select the desired connection, and then click Properties.
This takes you to the existing connection's Properties page.
The Advanced tab allows you to set the POP3 and SMTP
server ports, define whether the server requires secure connection, and
define server timeout settings and delivery settings. The delivery
settings allow you to read a message, but leave the message on the
server for a specified time. This feature is especially helpful if you
use the same e-mail account from more than one computer.

verified and then uploads the messages from your Outbox and
