To setup your email address as a IMAP account in Outlook 2007, start by clicking on Tools found at the top of the screen, followed by Account Settings…


On the Account Settings screen, select New… to add your email service as an IMAP account.


Next, enter your Name as you would like it to appear when sending Email, with your Email Address and Password in full.


Once this information in entered, select the option to Manually configure server settings… and click on Next.


Your Name and E-Mail Address should already be present in the User Information section. In the Server Information section, ensure the type is IMAP, with the Incoming mail server entered as sslmail.execulink.com, and the Outgoing mail server (SMTP) entered as sslmail.execulink.com. The Logon Information should have your Full Email Address in the User Name field, as well as your Password entered below.


Now, click on More Settings…

On the Outgoing Server tab, place a check mark beside My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication.


Next, click on the Advanced tab. Use the drop down menu to select SSL for both the Incoming and Outgoing server beside the option to Use the following type of encrypted connection. This should automatically change the Incoming Port number to 993, however you will need to manually enter the Outgoing Port number as 465. Once this is completed, click OK.


You should be back at the Settings screen now, so click on Next at the bottom right of the screen.


This completes the Account Setup. Once you click on Finish, Outlook should automatically perform a Send/Receive function and attempt to synchronize your IMAP folders.


If you do not have any mail waiting to be downloaded, a good way to test the settings is to send yourself an email. Once you have sent the test message to yourself, click on Send/Receive to expedite the process of Outlook checking for new messages on the mail server.
