To setup your braunton.net email account to work with your email client follow the instructions below. In this example i have used Outlook Express, however the settings used are the same for most email clients.

  1. From the file menu select File > Tools > Accounts

  2. In the pop-up window that appears select Add > Mail...


  3. A Wizard will start to guide you through the setup. In the Display name field enter your full name, then click next.



  4. Check the I already have an e-mail address that i'd like to use checkbox, enter your email address in the format anyuser@braunton.net, then click next.



  5. Select POP3 as your incoming server type. Enter braunton.net as your incoming mailserver (POP3) and as your outgoing (SMTP) server, then click next.
    Note: If your ISP will not relay email you may need to site this to the SMTP mail server address provided by them.



  6. Enter your account name in the following format anyuser+braunton.net and enter your password, if you are the only user who accesses the PC you can check the remember password checkbox, then click next.



  7. Your new email account should be setup. You can test this by sending an email to yourself.
