Check POP3 Email Settings in Outlook 2010

If you have a POP3 email address setup in Outlook 2010, you may wish to edit these details such as associated name and other settings. Follow the steps below to proceed:

Step 1 – At the top left of Outlook 2010, click the FILE tab, then click and open the Account Settings -> Account Settings buttons.


Step 2 – You will now see a list of emails, double click the POP3 email address you wish to edit.


Step 3 – After double clicking your email address, you will see the following details for editing. For example, if you wish to change your name, simply edit the “Your Name” field at the top. When you are done making changes, click “NEXT” at the bottom left to finish. It may do a test send/receive to ensure the account is working. Please note, unless you have been instructed, do not edit the server, username or password fields as this will cause your email to stop working correctly.

Step 4 – Close all windows to complete the changes.
