How To Set Up Email on Outlook on Office 365 Manually

Share

Outlook is primarily an email platform that gives you the freedom to manage how you send and receive emails, and also includes other functions like calendar, contacts, task manager, among others.

Exchanging emails is its primary purpose. Alternatively, you can use multiple email accounts to communicate with colleagues within your organisation. But wouldn’t it be easier and less complicated to communicate through a single platform? That is what Outlook is for.

For that reason, mailboxes like Office 365, IMAP accounts, etc. can be set up within your Outlook account for easy and simplified exchange of data in the form of emails, which you’ll learn in this guide.

Learn how to configure your mail client to make sure your email works seamlessly on software like Outlook by following the steps below:

    If you have Email Hosting:

     
    • Incoming mail server: imap.premium.crazydomains.com
