Any popular POP3 email client (software on your computer for accessing your email) can be used to access your email. We recommend Microsoft's Outlook Express for use on Windows desktops. The information below will explain how to set up and configure your email program for POP3 access to your email.
These are the settings to use in your email software:
Incoming (POP3) Server: mail.ablehost.com
Outgoing (SMTP) Server: mail.ablehost.com
Username: email@example.com (use FULL email address!)
Outgoing Mail Server Requires Authentication. (IMPORTANT) You must indicate in your email program that your Outgoing Mail Server Requires Authentication. This is usually presented as a check box in email client configuration and it is a required setting. If you are prompted for a username and password for SMTP authentication in your email program, use the same username (full email address) and password that you use for POP authorization.
Using Outlook or Outlook Express. If you use Microsoft's Outlook or Outlook Express, you can find a walk-through of the setup procedure here.
