Configure Outlook Settings in using DSL with Outlook

Many of you are familiar that email client programs such as Microsoft Outlook work by actively downloading messages off your email servers and into local folders on your computer. This allows you to send and receive all your emails from within Microsoft Outlook itself. The process of setting up an Outlook account in efficiently managing your emails works the same way regardless of the type of Internet connection you may have (DSL, cable modem, T1, public Wi-Fi etc) and in configuring a few necessary Outlook settings.

It requires only a few simple steps.

How to use DSL with Outlook by configuring Outlook Settings

  1. First obtain the required server information (Incoming and Outgoing Email Servers, the Email Username and Password) from your email service provider. Now verify if the email provider uses outgoing server authentication or secure socket layer (SSL) connections. Also validate if your provider uses the default server port numbers or alternate port numbers.
  2. Determine the type of network connection your home DSL service uses. Do so by contacting the technical support department for your DSL service provider or by navigating to your computer’s network connections control panel to check if your home DSL Internet is represented by a “Local Area

  3. Next step, create an Outlook account. Open “Tools” menu from your Outlook settings and click on “Accounts“, “Account Settings” or “Email Accounts” based on the version of Outlook you have installed. Now create a new account and fill in the required server and login information you obtained in step 1. If your DSL connection uses a broadband connection instead of an LAC, you will need to specify this setting in your Outlook account. You will then notice a section labeled “Connection” on your screen. If not, click either on “Advanced” or “More Settings” to locate the same. Click on the checkbox that reads “Always connect to this account using” followed by “broadband connection” from the pull-down menu.
  4. Finally to test your new Outlook account, close out of the accounts window then click “Send/Receive“. If your email messages download properly into your Outlook inbox, you are now ready to use Outlook with your new DSL connection. However, in case of any type of server connection error, chances are you may have incorrectly configured your Outlook account. Or that there may be another connection problem preventing you from accessing your emails. In this case, contact technical support for your DSL Internet provider.
