This guide explains how to create an email account in Microsoft Outlook 2010. We assume that you have installed Microsoft Outlook 2010 on your PC and that you have not set up any email accounts previously.
We recommend that the email account be set up using IMAP instead of POP3, so that the emails will remain on our server instead of being deleted when they are downloaded. For this reason, this guide will show how to create the email account using IMAP.

To set up email in Outlook 2010, you must use the values supplied below. Exchange these values with the values valid for your email account with PRO ISP. In this example, we used ola@dittdomene.net as the email address with a specified password.

For the inbound and outbound email server, you should use cpanelX.proisp.no as the server name if you are using SSL (recommended). The X should then be exchanged for the number of the PRO ISP server on which the email account is configured. If you do not use SSL, you can also use mail.dittdomene.net, where dittdomene.net must then be exchanged for the domain for which you wish to configure the email account in Outlook 2010.

User name: ola@dittdomene.net
Password: ********

Inbound mail server (without SSL): mail.dittdomene.net
Outbound mail server SMTP (without SSL): mail.dittdomene.net

Inbound mail server (SSL): cpanelX.proisp.no
Outbound mail server SMTP (SSL): cpanelX.proisp.no

Port for inbound mail server:
    - POP without SSL: 110
    - POP with SSL: 995
    - IMAP without SSL: 143
    - IMAP with SSL: 993
Port for outbound mail server SMTP without SSL: 26
Port for outbound SMTP with SSL: 465
