How do I add my Email Account to my Email Client?


If your church has a domain through Concordia Technology Solutions and has an email package, and you’ve been provided with one of those email addresses, you may want to be able to access that email address outside of the webmail portal provided. If this is the case, you will need to set up your email address in an email client. This article will discuss the proper settings you need as well as how to set up your email client in one of the most popular email clients, Microsoft Outlook.

To set up your email in Microsoft Outlook, first, open Microsoft Outlook. In the top left corner of the page, click on File, and then click the “Add Account” button. From here, depending on your version of Outlook, your directions may vary slightly, the version described here is for Outlook 365

Fill in your email address in the “Email address” box and click the “Advanced options” button and check the box for “Let me set up my account manually”, and then press Connect. Then, select the “IMAP” option. It will fail, but then click the “Change Account Settings” button. From here, use the settings below to set up your account.

Username: your full email address
Password: your email password
Inbound and outbound mail server hostname:
The ports can be left blank to use the default values.  However, if you need them: 

  • Inbound port: SSL993 | Non-SSL: 143 
  • Outbound SMTP port: SSL465| Non-SSL: 25 or 587

After filling in these settings, click Connect, and your account will be added to Outlook.

These settings will be the same for other email client, but a note if you’re trying to add your email to an iOS device, when you enter your email address and password for the Outbound SMTP server The device may say this is optional, but, if this isn’t entered, you won’t be able to send emails from your phone with this account.
