Microsoft Outlook Support

Castles provides limited support for independent email software programs. Many customers use Microsoft Outlook and others use a variety of programs, some new and some very old. All Castles customers using our email system have access to Web Mail and we encourage you to use that. We do understand that many prefer their stand alone email program. However, with that, in most cases you’re on your own to determine the problem and resolve it.

• Changing Passwords

If you need to change your password, you should log into your web mail account, click on Options and change your password. Please review Castles email rules and settings.

• Email Not Working?

First, make sure you are actually connected to the Internet. Open a web browser and go to any search engine and do a basic search for something generic like dog, cat or horse. If the search is successful, do an image search for the same thing. Images should load rather quickly. If not, then you may have an Internet or WiFi issue. Resolve that first. In many cases, if you have a poor Internet connection, your email program will time out when talking to the email server.

Once you have determined that you’re connected to the Internet with good speed, than proceed to troubleshoot your email problem.
