How to configure an email account in FoxMail

The purpose of this tutorial is to show you how to setup an email account in the desktop program FoxMail so that you will be able to send and receive email.

The first step for setting up any email program is to create the email account. This is typically done through your web hosting account in the cPanel contol panel. If you need any assistance in setting up your email account, please view the tutorial: How to create a POP email account.

Let's assume you have created your new account and are now ready to configure FoxMail so that you can send and receive email from that account right on your desktop.

Begin by opening the FoxMail program on your desktop, then:

  • Click on the Account link in the menu at the top of the page.
  • From the drop-down menu, select and click on *New* to open the FoxMail Account Wizard window then click Next.
  • In this window you will enter a User Name. This can be anything as it only identifies the new account in FoxMail (it is not the username required to login to email).
  • Now click on the Next button again.
  • In this window, enter the Sender Name as you would like it to appear in the *from* field of outgoing emails into the first box.
  • In the second box, enter your complete new email address then click Next.
  • This window is for your Incoming (POP3) and Outgoing (SMTP) server names, these names have been provided to you in your welcome email from LampNetworks. They are simply **
  • In the first box marked *POP3 Server*, enter your server setting.
  • In the box below marked *Account*, enter the Account Username (this will be your email address).
  • Into the next box, enter your email password.
  • Into the next box, enter your outgoing (SMTP) server setting then click Next.
  • On this screen, check the box in front of the statement *SMTP server needs Authentication* (Allow Authentication).
  • Click Finish to return to the main screen.

SMTP authentication means that FoxMail will login to your mail server even when sending emails, not just when receiving. This is to ensure that you are the only one that can send emails from your account.

That is all there is to it. We have successfully setup an email account in FoxMail and can now begin to send and receive emails from that account.

You may setup as many accounts as you wish, but remember, in order for the accounts to work, you must first create them in your hosting cPanel. Otherwise, they don't exist as far as FoxMail is concerned. For additional assistance, contact us by submitting a support ticket.
