This guide takes you step-by-step through the process of setting up your Texo-hosted hosted email account using the online Outlook.com mail client.
For Outlook 2016, Outlook 2013, Outlook 2010 or Outlook for Mac, refer to those specific guides.
Replace example.com with your domain name.
Check your password by browsing to Webmail and trying to log in. If you aren’t able to log in, then you have the incorrect password. Forgotten passwords can be reset in your control panel – you will need to get your domain or web administrator to update it for you if you don’t have control panel access.
