How to access my web mail to outlook

Copper Contributor

Hi,

I'm looking for a way to access my webmail through Outlook. although I appreciate Gmail's functionality and I'm previously using that, but I find the interface and overall experience of Outlook more appealing. So looking for a solution that allows me to manage my emails from my website page using my outlook account. With Gmail, I know that this is possible, but I would prefer to utilize outlook's because of better experience. I will appreciate yor

I'd appreciate any guidance or information on how to achieve this integration between my webmail and Outlook. Thank you!

To access your webmail through Outlook, you can set up an email account using the IMAP or POP3 protocol. Here's a general guide on how to do it:

  1. Open Microsoft Outlook on your computer.

  2. Click on the "File" tab in the top-left corner of the Outlook window.

  3. Under the "Info" section, click on "Add Account."

  4. In the "Add Account" window, select the option "Manual setup or additional server types" and click "Next."

  5. Choose "POP or IMAP" and click "Next."

  6. Fill in the required information:

    • Your Name: Enter your full name or the name you want to be displayed when sending emails.
    • Email Address: Enter your full email address (e.g., email address removed for privacy reasons).
    • Account Type: Choose either "IMAP" or "POP3." IMAP is recommended as it syncs your emails across devices, while POP3 downloads the emails to your local device.
    • Incoming Mail Server: Enter the IMAP or POP3 server address provided by your webmail service provider.
    • Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP): Enter the SMTP server address provided by your webmail service provider.
  7. Fill in the login information:

    • User Name: Enter your full email address.
    • Password: Enter the password associated with your webmail account.
  8. Click on the "More Settings" button.

  9. In the "Internet Email Settings" window, go to the "Outgoing Server" tab.

  10. Check the box that says, "My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication," and select "Use same settings as my incoming mail server."

  11. Go to the "Advanced" tab.

  12. If you are using IMAP:

    • Incoming server (IMAP): 993
    • Use the following type of encrypted connection: SSL/TLS

If you are using POP3:

diffCopy code
- Incoming server (POP3): 995 - Use the following type of encrypted connection: SSL/TLS

13. If you are using IMAP:

diffCopy code
- Outgoing server (SMTP): 587 - Use the following type of encrypted connection: STARTTLS

If you are using POP3:

diffCopy code
- Outgoing server (SMTP): 465 - Use the following type of encrypted connection: SSL/TLS

14. Click "OK" to close the "Internet Email Settings" window.

  1. Click "Next" in the "Add Account" window to test the account settings. Outlook will verify the information and establish a connection with your webmail server.

  2. Once the tests are successful, click "Close."

  3. Finally, click "Finish" to complete the setup.

Outlook will start syncing your webmail account, and you should see your emails, folders, and other data in the Outlook application. You can now send and receive emails using your webmail account through Outlook.

Thanks for your valuable and detail response.
