For proper synchronization, it may be necessary before configuring Outlook 2013 with your XMission email address to create a few additional folders. We highly advise taking the following steps prior to configuring Outlook 2013.

First, in your web browser go to https://webmail.xmission.com and login with your XMission username and password. Then, simply click the Folders button along the top blue bar.


From here, you will see a list of the existing folders for your XMission email address. If any of the following folders are missing, you will want to manually add them.

  • Archives
  • Drafts
  • Sent
  • Junk
  • Trash

To add any of these folders, simply click the Choose Action pull-down menu and select Create Folder.


Once you've ensured none of the above folders are missing, you're ready to configure Outlook 2013 to check your XMission email.

To add an email address in Outlook 2013, first go to the File menu option near the upper left-hand corner within Outlook as seen below.


With Info selected, click Add Account.


Select Manual setup or additional server types and click Next.


Select POP or IMAP and click Next.


Fill out the information on this window as seen in the example below (with your own unique E-mail address, username, and password) and then click on the More Settings... button.


Go to the Outgoing Server tab and check the box that says My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication and ensure Use same settings as my incoming mail server is selected underneath that.


Now, go to the Advanced tab and change the Outgoing server (SMTP) port to 465 and select SSL for the preferred type of encryption. Then, simply click OK.


You will be returned to original "Account Settings" screen. From here, simply click Next.


Outlook will now test your account settings. Once it has succeeded, simply click Close from the test window and then Finish to complete the process.
