 Initial Setup for Beonline Service

Once you have contacted us to set up a new account, your computer needs to be configured to dial into Beonline and use our servers for things like email. This guide will show you, step by step, how to access your Beonline account.

To start the walkthrough with graphics, click here.

If you would like to print instructions for the setup, they are included below:

  1. Click on the Start button (lower left-hand corner of the screen)
  2. Click on "Run..."
  3. In the box that appears, type "icwconn1" (no quotes), then press "OK"
  4. The Internet Connection Wizard will load and present you with a few options. Select the option labeled "I want to setup my Internet connection manually..." (this is usually option 3). Click "Next"
  5. Select the option labeled "I connect through a phone line and modem" and click "Next"
  6. It will ask for the phone number to dial. This is not your phone number. Enter 614 for the area code, United State as the country, and 441-4055 for the telephone number, then click "Next"
  7. You will now be prompted for your user name and password. Keep in mind that the username is not your full email address, but rather the first part of it. (ex: if my login name is jsmith, my email address is jsmith@beol.net. I would only enter jsmith if asked for my user name) Click "Next"
  8. You will be asked to name the connection you have just created. The default "Connection to 441-4055 " is fine. If you choose to name it something different, make sure that it is descriptive, such as "Beonline"
  9. Now that the connection is set up, it is time to configure email. You will be asked if you wish to setup an Internet mail account. Choose yes and click Next.
  10. Choose "Create a new Internet mail account" and click Next
  11. Enter your full name (ex: John Smith) as the Display Name and click Next.
  12. Enter your email address (username@beol.net, ex: jsmith@beol.net) and click Next.
  13. For the type of incoming mail server, choose POP3 (it should be selected already). In the box labeled "Incoming mail (POP3, IMAP, of HTTP) server:" enter "pop.gmail.com". Enter the smtp.gmail.com for the outgoing mail server and click Next.
  14. Enter your login name where it asks for Account name. This will probably already be filled in. Enter your password in the box and, if desired, check the box labeled Save Password. Do not check the box to login using Secure Password Authentication. Click Next.
  15. You are done! If you would like to connect immediately, leave a checkmark in the box presented to you, and click Finish. If you don't wish to connect now, just uncheck the box and click Finish. To access the Internet from now on, just open Internet Explorer (there should be an icon on your desktop) or Outlook Express for email (if you don't see a shortcut, look under Start->Programs->Outlook Express).
