Configure Outlook Express for POPFile

  • 1. In Outlook Express select the Tools→Accounts… menu option. The Internet Accounts dialog will appear.

  • 2. Select the account you wish to modify to use POPFile and click on Properties.

  • 3. Choose the Servers tab. Make a note of the Incoming Mail (POP3) server name and the Incoming Mail Server Account Name.

  • 4. Change the Incoming Mail (POP3) server name to 127.0.0.1 and change the Incoming Mail Server Account Name to the combination of the original Incoming Mail (POP3) server name and the original Incoming Mail Server Account Name separated by a colon.

  • 5. So, if the original Incoming Mail server name was my.mail.com and your username was jdoe, your new username would be my.mail.com:jdoe
  • 6. You don't need to change the password.
  • 7. Hit OK and then Close.
  • 8. Ensure that POPFile is running and all mail will be delivered through POPFile!
  • 9. You'll need to make sure POPFile starts whenever Windows does. If you're using the Windows installer version, you can drag the 'Start POPFile in Background' link from the POPFile group in the Start menu to the Startup group. Now, Windows will load POPFile each time.

Important! If POPFile isn't loaded, the mail will not get through - and your email program won't connect!
