To set up your Outlook 2003 for IMAP
 
If you follow these following steps you should be fine:
 
  1. Make sure that you have your current password, if you do not we DO NOT keep these on file (this is for security reasons and all passwords are encrypted on our server and we do not keep the key!), so we will have to generate a new one for you. Please contact us here for your details, remember to include your email address that you want reset.
  2. Assuming now you have your username, these are the settings that you require
    • Incomming or imap server is imap.fbi.ie
    • select ssl as connection security type
    • port is 993
    • Outgoing or smtp server is smtp.fbi.ie
    • select ssl as connection security type
    • port 587

You can test your settings here with our online web based email client.
