How to configure TDS Mail Settings in Windows 10 Mail App

1. Open the Mail app in Windows 10 from the Start menu and click the Settings link (the gear icon) in the lower left area of the Mail app.
(If this is the first time using the app you can also click the Get Started link that appears in the center, then click Add Account, and skip to step 4.)

 
2. The Settings menu will appear on the right side of the app. Click Accounts.
 


3. The Accounts menu now appears on the right side of the app. Click Add Account.

 
4. The Choose an account menu pops up in the middle of the app with a scroll bar.  Scroll down and click Advanced Setup; this option is not visible on most computers until you scroll down a little.
(Do not click Other Account, it will automatically try and then fail to get the settings for TDS mail.)

 
5. The Advanced Setup menu appears. Click Internet Email.

 
6. The Internet Email Account settings window appears with a scroll bar on the right. Add the following settings, scrolling down as needed:
Account Name:  (TDS or whatever the customer wants)
Your Name:  (whatever the customer wants)
Incoming Email Server:
  mail.tds.net
Account type:  Select IMAP4 from the drop down menu
User name:  (the entire TDS email address)
Password:  (TDS email password)
Outgoing (SMTP) email server:  mail.tds.net

All 4 of the checkboxes below Outgoing (SMTP) email server should already be checked by default and need to stay checked:  Outgoing server requires authentication; Use the same user name and password for sending mail; Require SSL for incoming mail; Require SSL for outgoing mail.

 




7. Click the Sign-in button. An "All Done!" message appears; click the Done button on the bottom of it. The account will be added to the Accounts list on the left side of the Mail app.  
If there are multiple accounts the customer can click the Accounts menu on the upper left of the app to select and see the TDS account or whatever account they currently wish to view.
