9. Enter 110 in the “Incoming server (POP3)” field and 25 in the “Outgoing server (SMTP)” field (it should be set to these values by default). If you wish to leave copies of your messages on the server, then check “Leave a copy of messages on the server” box and under it specify number of days, after which these massages should be removed from the server. If you do not wish to leave copies of messages on the server, so that your “Mailbox Quota” won’t be exceeded as you get lots of e-mails, then you should uncheck “Leave a copy of massages on the server” box. By doing so Microsoft Outlook will download all of your e-mails to your computer and will remove them from the server. If you have finished your settings click “Ok”.
