  • Hello,

    You can use Outlook 2007/2010 client.

    Configure Outlook profile:

      • Open Outlook. Select Account Settings... from the Tools menu
      • On the E-mail tab, click New.
      • Select "Manually configure server settings or additional server types" and click Next >.
      • Select Internet E-mail and click Next >.
      • Enter the following information for E-mail Accounts.
      • Your Name: Enter the name you wish recipients to see when they receive your message.
      • Email Address:This is the address that your       contacts' email program will reply to your messages. This is also the       address that will get recorded in your contacts' address book if they add       you as a contact.
      • Account Type: POP3
      • Incoming mail server: Enter
      • Outgoing mail server (SMTP): Enter
      • User Name: Enter your full e-mail address
      • Password: If you wish for Outlook to save       your password, check the box labeled Remember Password and enter       your password in the text field.
      • Click More Settings...

    6. Click on the Outgoing Server tab, and check the box labeled My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication. Then choose to Use same settings as my incoming mail server.

    1. Click      on the Advanced tab.
      1. Under Incoming Server (POP3), the port number       should be set to 110.
      2. Under Outgoing Server (SMTP), the port number       should be set to 587.

    8. Click OK

    9. Click Next. Click Finish.

    Let me know any further help.

    Thank you.
