Steps to Set-up QuickBooks Email Service on QuickBooks Desktop
Before proceeding, you need to prepare and setup your Microsoft Outlook profile.
You can use your existing Outlook profile or create a new one to set up your QuickBooks email service. You will also require Outlook username, password, incoming mail server address, outgoing mail server address and incoming email server type. In case you don’t have these details, you can contact your ISP (Internet Service Provider).

Important: QuickBooks Desktop, unlike the Secure Webmail, prompts you to provide your password the first time you use regular webmail to send an email.
In case QB Desktop still doesn’t take your password, please know that web mail providers (Gmail, Yahoo, etc.) practice two-step verification and want users to check the account setting for the same.
If you are a Cox user: Cox’s standard SMTP setting is not to use SSL or login credentials when sending emails. QB Desktop prefers SSL connections and wants you to provide login information. Thus, using port 25 and no SSL connection with SMTP doesn’t function with QuickBooks Desktop. A different trick is to use SSL with port 587 or 465.
If you are a CableOne users: Please use the following information since CableOne uses Google servers.
