Microsoft Email App Configuration

Your Microsoft 365 Email Account(s) can be added to Microsoft Outlook and/or any other Desktop, Tablet or Mobile email client or app.

POP access is disabled by default. See the section below on how to enable POP access in Outlook.com.

Outlook.com does not require Secure Password Authentication (SPA).

Incoming and outgoing servers are the same.

Choosing POP or IMAP
POP and IMAP are different ways of handling your incoming mail.

If you are using multiple devices such as a mobile phone app and a desktop client or outlook.com on the web then you should use the IMAP protocol for your incoming server settings. This allows all of your messages and folders to remain synced on every single device you connect with. ALL DEVICES need to be configured using the IMAP protocol as your incoming server for this to work properly.

POP or POP3 means that when you check for new mail messages, they are downloaded on the device you are using and removed from the server. Therefore, if you were to login using a different device, you would need see the emails that were downloaded on your other device.

Choose POP or IMAP - You can only use one protocol for your incoming server settings
