Fine Line Design
This section describes how to configure either Netscape Navigator 3 or Microsoft Outlook Express / Outlook for accessing a Fine Line Design e-mail account. There are a lot of images on this page so it make take a while to download. Set up for Microsoft Mail and most other email programs is very similar. The screen shots may look different, but the information you need will be the same. Please contact us if you wish to set up a "web mail" account that you can use from any browser. This is a good option if you are traveling without your computer. It is not a good solution as a permanent email client however.
Note on E-mail Aliases: Each Fine Line Design e-mail account can contain up to 5 e-mail aliases. However, all 5 of the e-mail aliases all pipe into the same e-mail account. You only need to setup one e-mail account as described below, and you will be able to retrieve all e-mail from any of the 5 e-mail aliases. Only if you have paid an additional monthly fee for additional e-mail accounts will you have to setup more than one account in Netscape or Microsoft Outlook.
IMPORTANT NOTE: If you are using your ISP (Earthlink, MSN, Comcast, SBC, ATT, etc.) to SEND mail, use the settings they provide for all OUTGOING SMTP mail server settings. Note that if you have AOL as your ISP, they are not "Outlook friendly" they would prefer that you use their proprietary email service. Contact us and we can have your site email forwarded to your AOL account. Or you may use the settings below.
Outlook 2003 and higher (this is the most universal set up procedure. If you are having trouble with another method, try following these instructions)
