Outlook e-mail using hughesnet HELP!

Anyone have any insight on how to configure the "Outlook" Microsoft program, can't log onto the hughesnet server.... Keep getting errors even with the Hughes Tech support and my "GEEK Squad" people. I don't want to use the e-mail on the net, I want to control the e-mail on Outlook so I have extra protection on computer system! Any ideas? Thanks, S. Walker

I can see how that'd be super frustrating. Have you tried the steps outlined here?  http://customer.kb.hughesnet.com/Pages/7014.aspx

 

They're under Outlook Mail Settings.

I use it all the time for POP (not IMAP - IMAP tends to go real slow on satellite):

1. Email address and username are your full address including the @Hughes.net part.
2. Password is obvious

3. Incoming server is mail.hughes.net, port 995, Use SSL.
4. Outgoing server is smtp.hughes.net, port 465, Use SSL.
5. Authentication uses Incoming Server Info, Unqualified domain should be blank.
