Program configuration for Outlook Express 5 - 6
Make the following adjustments to use our news server:
If our news server is the first you use with Outlook Express, please continue with the configuration as described at step #3.
You can add another news server by selecting Tools / Accounts:
Click at the register card News and choose Add / News:
Now you need to enter the configuration data.
Please enter your correct e-mail address in the field E-mail address and click Next.
Enter the name of our news server: News.CIS.DFN.DE
Please enter your username into the field Account name as well as your password into the field Password.
Storing your account information in the news reader's configuration is a potential security risk. If you are unsure, please refer to our FAQ at http://news.cis.dfn.de/faq.html#1.6.
It is not necessary to enter a password if your institution is a member of the institutional access scheme (Anwenderzulassung) and you are accessing the server from your institution's network.
"Log on using Secure Password Authentication (SPA)" must remain unchecked!
Click at Next and confirm the end of this configuration part with Finish.
Afterwards you can select the newsgroups you are interested in.
Select the register card Advanced and choose the maximum value for Server Timeouts. If you prefer both authentication and articles to be transferred over an encrypted connection, check "This server requires a secure connection (SSL)" and set "Port number" to 563; otherwise leave it unchanged at "119".
A click on Apply and then on OK finishes the configuration.
The buttons for HTML should be unchecked.
