These instructions cover setting up your email on the Windows Mail and Calendar App for Windows 10. Because we do not have older versions of Windows we will only have a tutorial for the newest Version of the Windows Mail and Calendar App which as of this date (08/30/2017) is Windows 10. This tutorial may work with older versions, however, that is not guaranteed. If you have an older version of the Windows Mail and Calendar App please contact Microsoft for support. As new versions come out, we will add those in other tutorials, not removing this one. Although all of the versions may be different, the email settings will stay the same. Here is a list of information that you will need to put in your email app settings. 

  • The incoming server must be set to, mail.yourdomain (i.e. if your domain is sharefaith.com then your inbound server would be mail.sharefiaith.com.
  • The incoming port must be 143 unless you have an ssl (not typical) then it is 993.
  • The outgoing server must be set to, smtp.sharefaithwebsites.net.
  • The outgoing Port must be set to 587 unless you want to use ssl then it is 465.
  • Make sure that all of your usernames have your complete email address.
  • Make sure that none of your email addresses have a capital letter in them.
