Bigpond email settings for Outlook Office 365

Answered

Could someone please explain the process in setting this up? The Outlook 2016 guidelines do not work, I'm still getting timed out from my webmail. Thanks.

Re: Bigpond email settings for Outlook Office 365

Add the account manually and use the following settings. It may still time out during peak periods at the moment.

 

IMAP settings

Account type:

  • Account type: IMAP

Incoming server details:

  • Incoming server address: imap.telstra.com
  • Incoming server port: 993
  • Encrypted connection: SSL

Outgoing server details:

  • Outgoing server address: smtp.telstra.com
  • Outgoing server port: 465 (recommended) or 587
  • SMTP authentication: On
  • Encrypted connection: SSL/TLS on port 465 (recommended) or STARTTLS on port 587

Username & Password:

  • User name: Your Telstra email address - ending in ‘@bigpond.com’, ‘@bigpond.net.au’ or ‘@telstra.com.’
  • Password: Your Telstra email account password - REMEMBER it’s case sensitive.

Other settings to check:

  • Make sure ‘Outgoing server requires authentication’ is ticked.
Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.
