Start Outlook (you can find it under the Start menu)
Under the Tools menu, click Services.
Click the Add button, make sure Internet E-mail is selected,
then click Ok.
The first field (mail account name) can be anything you like, for example:
For User name enter the "Display name" you'd like to appear in the
"From" line of your emails. For instance, "John Smith" or "RegCA Sales".
For E-mail address, enter the email address you'd like to
use at your domain. For example: email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org,
Click the Servers tab.
Set both Incoming mail and Outgoing mail to be your
domain name. For example: my-domain.ca.
If you've already set up an email address, enter it in as the
Account name, and it's password for Password.
If you haven't yet set up an email address (or you're using a MiniSite), put
your domain name in for Account name.

Some major ISP's (such as AOL,Sympatico,MSN,etc) block outgoing email.
If you're using one of these providers, or you receive this error when trying
to send an email: The message could not be sent because one of the recipients was
rejected by the server. The rejected e-mail address was
'email@example.com'. Subject 'Test', Account: 'my-domain.ca', Server:
'my-domain.ca', Protocol: SMTP, Server Response: '550 5.7.1 ... Relaying denied. IP name lookup failed [X.X.X.X]', Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 550, Error Number: 0x800CCC79 Click here to run a port test to find an available port.
Click the Advanced tab. Change the Outgoing mail (SMTP)
port from 25 to 26 or use or 2500 or 587 (or any port that the port test showed as available - it varies by ISP).
Click Ok to complete this dialog, then click Ok to close
services. You may need to restart Outlook for your changes to take effect.
