Set Up Mail on Windows 10

The purpose of this page is to describe how to set up a new email account to work with OlympusNet email servers.

Note: Windows 10 Mail does not have a setting to remove email from the OlympusNet server. One must log in to Webmail to manually delete email after downloading, as desired.

  1. Click on the Windows banner in the lower left.
  2. If you do not see the block that says Mail, instead select 'All apps' just above the banner icon. Both are outlined in red in the screenshot below.

  3. Select Mail, or All Apps and then Mail.
  4. Click on Accounts, then Add Account.

  5. From the options select Advanced Setup.  *Note: the scroll bar is invisible unless moused-over; Advanced Setup is the option below Other Account. The OlympusNet account works only with the Advanced Setup options.

  6. Enter your email information in the fields that follow: it is easiest to tab from field to field, because again the scroll bar is invisible and erratic. Do not click "sign in" until past the four check boxes at the end.  Note: For the incoming/outgoing Server Names domain customers, mailc11.megamailservers.com should be used.  The screenshots show mail.userservices.net, which customer@olympus.net should use.
  7. An update to the settings in Fall 2017 has rearranged the fields shown in the screenshot below. Newly purchased computers will have that update, and older computers will eventually get the rearrangement in an update.  The new arrangement of the fields will be:
    Email Address [enter email address]
    User name [enter email address again]
    Password [enter email password]
    Account name [enter Olympus, or email address if you have more than one OlympusNet email]
    Send message using this name [enter preferred personal name, first and last, nickname, etc.]
    Incoming mail server [enter relevant server name]
    Account type [select Pop3]
    Outgoing (SMTP) email server [enter relevant server name]
    Check the four check boxes that follow, and click Sign In

  8. Click Sign In.

  10. Click the Ready To Go button. The view of your Inbox appears like the screenshot below:
