WinXP - eMail Clients & Microsoft Exchange Servers

This post is about eMail Clients Pegasus and Thunderbird when using a Microsoft Exchange Server.

The company I work for recently changed from a local (non-SSL) eMail Server to a Microsoft Cloud Exchange Server (microsoftonline.com), using SSL security. This presented some setup problems with Pegasus and Thunderbird that some users prefer.

Below are the screenshots (click on image for full view) of the settings that worked.

The Port Numbers used are standard for SSL.

WARNING: Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 users

  • You should already have Windows Search 4.o installed, but....

  • ...IF you do not, it is critical that you install Windows Search 4.o BEFORE opening Outlook 2007.

IN ADDITION: If you are updating your eMail Account to a Microsoft Exchange Server, you should edit your eMail Account via Control Panel, eMail icon, NOT by opening Outlook.
