This tutorial assumes you have already created your new email account in your web hosting account…typically through your hosting control panel.

Start by clicking the TOOLS LINK. Then click INTERNET OPTIONS.

The INTERNET MAIL OPTIONS WINDOW will appear.

The easiest way to setup a new email account is to run the SETUP WIZARD. Click the START SETUP WIZARD button.

Click NEXT.

Enter the NEW EMAIL ADDRESS in the provided box. Click NEXT.

Now you have to enter your INCOMING POP3 SERVER NAME which would have been provided to you in your welcome email. Typically the Incoming POP3 server name is mail.yourdomain.com where yourdomain.com must be replaced with your own domain name.

Enter your POP3 SERVER SETTING now and then click NEXT.

Now enter the EMAIL USER NAME as provided to you by your hosting provider. This may be the entire email address or just the user name prefix.

Now enter your EMAIL PASSWORD and then click NEXT.

Depending on your hosting server configuration, your username may be the FULL EMAIL ADDRESS or just the email prefix. If the full email address does not work, simply come back and enter the username as just the prefix.

Click OK.

Now you have to enter your OUTGOING SMTP MAIL SERVER SETTINGS which is typically the same as your POP3 setting. The wizard will automatically preselect your settings to match your POP3 SETTINGS meaning you will not need to edit this field.

Click NEXT.

Choose how you will connect to the internet, then click NEXT.

Click FINISH to complete the setup wizard. The email account has been setup but there’s one more step.

Click the SENDING SMTP tab.

Make sure the SMTP HOST we’re setting up is selected, then click EDIT.

Click the SECURITY tab.

Check the box near the bottom of the window so that the SMTP PORT REQUIRES AUTHENTICATION.

SMTP AUTHENTICATION means that Pegasus will login to your mail server even when sending emails (not just receiving) ensuring that you are the ONLY one that can send emails from your account.

Most SMTP servers use the SAME USERNAME AND PASSWORD as the POP3 servers, so lets select those settings. Click the SELECT button.

Highlight the POP3 DEFINITION that was just created and then click SELECT.

Your SMTP AUTHENTICATION SETTING has been set.

Scroll down.

Click OK.

Scroll down again.

Click OK.

That’s it! You’ve successfully setup an email account and can now start sending and receiving emails from that account from Pegasus.
