How to setup an e-mail account in Outlook / Outlook Express
To better serve your needs, we have switched to a local mail server. Included in this upgrade is a SPAM filter, and web based access. This will allow you to access your e-mail when away from home. This upgrade requires you to reset your password and update some settings. The old e-mail server will soon be shut off, so make the change as soon as possible. Any e-mail messages left on the old server will be lost.
To access your account, and change your password, go to http://mail.sbtnet.com and follow these steps:
1. Login to your mail account by typing your e-mail address into the E-mail Address box. (see Figure1 )
E-mail address: email@example.com
Password: johndoe Note: Your temporary password is the same as your username.
2. Once you have successfully logged in, click on the Options link, you will find it in the lower left-hand side of the screen. (see Figure2)
3. With the Personalize tab Selected type the new password in the password box and the confirm password box. (see Figure3)
4. Click the Save button at the bottom of the screen.
You have successfully changed your password, and are ready for the next step.
5. Setting up your e-mail client (such as Outlook Express or Microsoft outlook) you will need to add a new mail account with the following information:
Incoming (POP3) mail server: mail.sbtnet.com
