Setting up Email
There are several different Email clients on the market these days. The appearance and process for each may vary; however, the steps to follow in setting up a Subscriber’s email account are generally the same.
To set up email, the Install must complete the following steps:
- Assign the incoming email server (POP3)
- Assign the outgoing e-mail server (SMTP)
- Assign the subscriber information
All of this information is included in the work order sent to the Technician via Email or in the WildBlue sub-tab in the AdminTool.
