(* If your version of Outlook has simply 'Accounts' listed (Office 2000), please follow the instructions about how to set up Outlook Express).

4 Enter these settings into the appropriate fields in the screen shown below.
(1) Enter your name as you wish it to be viewed by the people to whom you send your email.
(2) The "E-mail Address" is in the format alias@username.plus.com - where 'alias' is the email alias that you wish to use (for example your first name), and username is the username that you chose when you signed up.

If you have registered and hosted a domain on your PlusNet account you may wish to enter alias@yourdomain.co.uk as your email address (replacing your own domain name of course!).

Server Information:

When you have finished entering these email settings, click on the More Settings button.
