WINDOWS MAIL USING ACTIVESYNC W/SSL
This guide provides instructions for configuring Windows Mail to access your Webnames.ca hosted email account via ActiveSync. The setup will result in the connection of email, calendar, tasks, and contacts all being synchronized with what appears in webmail for this same email account. To synchronize between two or more devices, configure them all to connect via ActiveSync
Note: In other versions of mail programs, the location and look of certain steps may differ, however the same general steps and settings may be used.
This guide assumes that email services have been purchased, and email addresses have been created in the email administration interface.
NOTE: If you are switching from an existing IMAP or POP3 connection to using Activesync, the following steps will create a new connection in Windows Mail to your existing email account. After this new connection is created and working, the previous IMAP connection can be deleted. No mail will be lost, since with both IMAP and Activesync, your email resides on the our mail server at all times.
Select the Windows icon in the lower left of your desktop and search for, or scroll to Mail in your list of programs.
Once Mail has opened, click on Accounts on the left and then + Add account on the right.
In the Add an account window, select Advanced Setup from the list of account types.
In the next window, select Exchange ActiveSync.
In the next window, enter the following:
Email Address: Full Email Address
Password: Your Password
User name: Full Email Address
Domain: Your domain name
Server requires encrypted (SSL) connection: checked
Account Name: Any name/label you like
Click Sign in and setup is then complete.
