Incoming Mail Server: pop.oraica.com

Under 'Delivery', we recommend that you select 'Leave a copy of the message on the server' and against 'Remove from server after' set the number of days to 8. If you don't download you mail regularly you might want to set it to a higher number, say 15 days.

Click OK and Outlook will test the connections to the mailbox for send and receive.

If you wish you can click on 'Test account settings ...' after clicking OK. This will send out a test message and receive a test message.

You can now perform a send and receive to deliver your email.
