To set up your iiNet email address on Windows 10 Mail, simply follow the steps below, or watch the video.
Search for Mail in the search bar and click the envelope icon to open Windows 10 Mail.
If this is your first time using the program, you may see a Welcome screen. If you do, click Add Account.
If you don't see this screen, simply click Accounts.
Click Add Account in the settings menu that appears on the right hand side of the screen.

Send your messages using this name: The name that will appear on emails you send
If your email address doesn't end in "@iinet.net.au", please see iiNet Group Email Settings.
Enter the following details for the Incoming and Outgoing email server and Account type:
Incoming email server: mail.iinet.net.au OR imap.themessagingco.com.au
Account type: IMAP4
Outgoing (SMTP) mail server: mail.iinet.net.au OR smtp.themessagingco.com.au
We recommend IMAP4 if you use multiple devices, otherwise POP3 will work for you.
Tick the checkboxes next to the following:
Outgoing server requires authentication
Use the same username and password for sending emails
Require SSL for incoming emails
Require SSL for outgoing emails
Click Sign in and you're done!
You should now be able to select your mailbox from your list of accounts. We recommend you send a test email to and from your iiNet email address to confirm it is working. If your email is not working, please call us on 13 22 58 for a hand.
