BTInet Email on Outlook 2010

 

Outlook 2010 can be setup with IMAP using (imap.btinet.com) or POP using (pop.btinet.com)

  •       The incoming IMAP server is imap.btinet.com using port 143
  •       The incoming POP server is pop.btinet.com using port 110
  •       The outgoing server SMTP is smtp.btinet.com using port 587

To edit these settings Start Outlook 2010 and select File from the ribbon (upper left), select Info from the side panel, then select Account settings. This will open up a dialogue box similar to the one pictured below.

Once you have confirmed these settings we need to configure the option More Settings. Under More Settings, under Outgoing Server, make sure the “My outgoing server requires authentication” is checked and that “use same settings as my incoming mail server is selected”.

Under the Advanced Tab we want to make sure that the Outgoing Server number is 587 and that the option “This server requires an encrypted connection” is either TLS or SSL (In the rare case that one of these encryptions types does not work please try using them with port 465).
