Manual HughesNet E-mail Set-up for Outlook
If neither of the above methods work, however, you will need to set up your e-mail details manually in Outlook. In Outlook 2010, go to File > Add Account and select Manually configure server settings or additional server types before clicking Next.
Here, select Internet E-mail and then in the Next screen enter your name and e-mail address in the appropriate fields. Decide on whether you wish to collect your e-mail via POP or IMAP (either is available) and then enter the server details:
Incoming mail server: mail.hughes.net
Outgoing mail server: smtp.hughes.net
For the Logon Information, your username (typically your e-mail address) and password should be entered.
Next, click on More Settings… and open the Outgoing Server tab. Here you should check the My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication option, along with the default option of Use same settings as my incoming mail server. Click OK, then Next and Finish to complete the set-up of your HughesNet account in Microsoft Outlook!
As you get used to manually setting up e-mail accounts in Outlook, the process becomes easier to remember - in the meantime, bookmark this page or print out the details for future reference.
