Once you have created an email account in the Hostpoint Control Panel, you can set it up in your email-programme. In this guide, we will show you step-by-step how to set up your email-address with Outlook Office 365.

E-Mail account administration

Click on «File» at the top left and then «Add Account».

Outlook 1 EN

Automatic configuration

Enter your complete e-mail-address.

With the following click on «Connect», the system automatically searches for the correct account settings.

Outlook 2 EN

In the «Password» field, enter the corresponding password for your e-mail-address that you defined when you created the e-mail-address in the Hostpoint Control Panel. Now click on «Connect».

Outlook 3 EN

If you see this success notification (see screenshot), your account has been successfully set up.

Outlook 4 EN

If the automatic setup fails and you get a certificate error warning, then you can accept the certificate and your email address will work. The warning appears because our SSL certificates for our e-mail-servers are not specific to your own domain, but to *

Manual configuration

To set up the E-Mail address yourself, go to «Advanced options», select «Let me set up my account manually», then click «Connect».

Outlook 5 EN

Choosing the account type: POP or IMAP

Now choose between a POP- or IMAP-Account.

With the IMAP option, your e-mails remain on the server. When reading, a copy is downloaded from the server each time.
With the POP option, your e-mails are downloaded to your Outlook and stored. The messages are deleted from the server. You can therefore read your e-mails offline at any time - e.g. on the train.

If you are not sure, select the account type «IMAP-account».

Outlook 6 EN

Enter your E-Mail-password in the «Password» Field that you defined when creating the e-mail-address in the Hostpoint Control Panel and click on «Connect».

Outlook 7 EN

If you see this success notification (see screenshot), your account has been successfully set up.

Outlook 4 EN

Exceptional case

If you have made a mistake when entering the Username (E-Mail-address) or the Password, you will see an error message. In this case, select «Change Account Settings».

Outlook 9 EN

In the account settings, enter the server address for IMAP or for POP for «Incoming e-mail».  For «Outgoing e-mail», enter as the server’s name.

Select either «STARTTLS» or «SSL/TLS» as the encryption method for both servers.

Verify the Port Settings according to the follwing List:

Account- and connection typePort
