Thank you. I went through all the steps,but it says that it can't find the server. I'm using Outlook 13,and my domain is a .net,does that maybe make a difference?
Please send me the error message and the domain name to answers@afrihost.com so that i can assist you further.

Depending on the version of Microsoft Oulook, you shoud be able to use the below steps to configure your emails.

  1. For incoming and outgoing mail server, you can use mail.mywebsitename.co.za for both Incoming and Outgoing. 
  2. When asked for authentication, this will be your email address and password. No SSL option needs to be selected.
  3. In More Settings, select Outgoing email server > select My Outgoing Server requires authentication and Use same Settings as my Incoming.
  4. Lastly, in More Settings > select the Advanced tab and ensure your outgoing server port is set to port 587 and that should do the trick!
