By Maya Walker

Using Outlook with Time Warner email makes it possible for you to check your email in other locations, such as work. After setting up your email account in Outlook, you can send and receive email messages as you normally would using Time Warner's web-based mail. You can access your Time Warner email using Outlook with an active Internet connection and the correct settings. With the right information, you can set up your Time Warner email in Outlook in a matter of minutes.

Step 1

Select "Tools," then "E-Mail Accounts" to add the Time Warner email account.

Step 2

Select "Add a new e-mail account," and then click "Next." Select "POP3," then click "Next." At the "User Information" screen, type the way you want your name to be displayed to email recipients in the "Your Name" field.

Step 3

Type your email address in the "E-Mail Address" field. It is important to put your whole email address in this field, not just your user name.

Step 4

Fill in the "Incoming mail server (POP3)" field. If you do not have the incoming mail server settings for your email, they are available on Time Warner's website (see Resources).

Step 5

Fill in the "Outgoing mail server (SMTP)" field. It is also available on Time Warner's website.

Step 6

Type in your user name and password under "Logon Information." Check the "Remember password" box.

Step 7

Test the email settings that you entered. Click "Test Account Settings" and check for an error message. If your password or settings are incorrect, verify the settings and check again.

Step 8

Label the email account. Click "More Settings," then the "General" tab. The name for the email account should be filled in under "Mail Account."

Step 9

Save your settings. Click "OK," then "Next" and finally "Finish."
