How to configure an email account in Opera

This tutorial assumes you've already created your new email account in your web hosting account..... typically through your hosting control panel

Now let's learn how to setup that new email account in Opera, so you'll be able to send/receive emails to/from that new email account from here

1) Start by clicking the Tools link here

2) Then click Mail and chat accounts...

3) Click Yes to create a new email account

4) Click the Regular e-mail (POP) link here

5) Enter the Real Name as you would like it to appear in the From field of outgoing emails here

6) Enter the new email address here

7) Enter your Organization name here

8) Then click Next

9) Now enter the Login name as provided to you by your hosting provider..... this may be the entire email address (john@demo1234.com), or just the username prefix (john)..... you should check with your provider to be sure

10) Then enter your email password here

11) Click Next

12) Now you have to enter your Incoming (POP3) and Outgoing (SMTP) server names

These server names will have been provided to you in your welcome email, and often times are simply mail.yourdomain.com

They were automatically inserted into their fields correctly, so we do not have to alter them

13) Un-check this box if you do not want your messages left on your hosting server after you download them

Depending on your ISP (Internet Service Provider), you may not be able to use the SMTP server setting provided by your hosting provider; you may have to use the SMTP server setting supplied by your ISP

If you are unable to send emails from your new account after it's setup, try changing this SMTP setting to that provided by your ISP, and try again

14) Click Finish to exit the Account Wizard

That's it! We've successfully setup an email account, and can now start sending and receiving emails to and from that account, from Opera
