How do I configure the email (Outlook express / Netscape / Eudora) client to read and write my Rediffmail mails?

Set up POP 3 for Outlook Express
Outlook Express allows you to add a new email account to your existing profile. This means you do not have to replace your current settings in order to send and receive Rediffmail messages.
  • From the Tools menu, choose ‘Accounts.’
  • Select the ‘Mail’ tab.
  • Click the ‘Add’ button.
  • From the Add menu, click ‘Mail.’
  • In the ‘Display Name’, type your name and click ‘Next.’
  • In the ‘Email Address’, type your Rediffmail address.
  • Select ‘POP3’ to answer the question ‘My incoming mail server is a...’
  • In the Incoming mail (POP3, IMAP, or HTTP) server box, type ‘pop.rediffmail.com’
  • In the Outgoing mail (SMTP) server box, type ‘smtp.rediffmail.com’
  • Click ‘Next.’
  • In the Account Name box, type your Rediffmail address
  • In the Password box, type your Rediffmail Password.
  • If you want Outlook Express to remember your password, check the ‘Remember password’ box.
  • Do not check the boxes labelled ‘Log on using Secure...’
  • Click ‘Next.’
  • Click ‘Finish.’
Set up POP 3 for Netscape Messenger
  • From the Edit menu on the toolbar, select ‘Preferences.’

  • In the Server name box, type ‘pop.rediffmail.com.’
  • Under Server Type, click the pull-down list and select ‘POP3 Server.’
  • Under User Name, type your Rediffmail address. Important: Please use a '+' sign instead of the '@' in the address.
  • Check ‘Remember password’ so you don't have to re-enter your password each time you start Messenger. You'll be prompted for your password initially.
  • Select the ‘POP’ tab and check the box labelled ‘Leave messages on server.’
  • Click ‘OK.’
  • In the Outgoing mail (SMTP) server box, type ‘smtp.rediffmail.com’
  • In the Outgoing mail server user name box, type your Rediffmail address. Important: Please use a '+' sign instead of the '@' in the address.

  • Under the Mail & Newsgroups category on the left, select ‘Identity.’
  • In the Email Address box, type your Rediffmail address
  • Click ‘OK.’
Set up POP 3 for Eudora
  • Click on the Tools Menu and select ‘Personalities.’
  • Right click in the ‘Personalities’ box (on the left of the screen) and select ‘New.’
  • The New Account Wizard will take you through the set-up. Use the following settings:
  • Personality Name: Enter your name
  • Account Settings: Select ‘Create a new account.’
  • Personal Information: Enter your name.
  • Email Address: Enter your Rediffmail address.
  • Login Name: Enter your Rediffmail address again.
