Setting Up Your E-Mail Program

We support a variety of e-mail programs, including Outlook and Outlook Express. In addition to those, you can use almost any e-mail program with your Coastal e-mail account. The main pieces of information you will need to configure your e-mail program are:
  • your Coastal username
  • your Coastal password
  • the name of the SMTP (outgoing) mail server (smtp.coastalnow.net)
  • the name of the POP (incoming) mail server (pop.coastalnow.net)

    For your convenience, we have provided step-by-step directions for configuring several e-mail programs to work with your Coastal e-mail account.
