POP and IMAP email settings for Outlook

POP and IMAP email settings for Outlook

In order to add your email account to Outlook, Outlook on the web, Outlook.com, or the Mail and Calendar apps for Windows 10, you'll need several pieces of information including the type of account, the incoming and outgoing server names, and the SSL and port settings. Your email provider can give you these settings, but we've provided the settings for the most popular email providers below.

Find your IMAP or POP server settings

If you're using a common email service, such as Outlook.com or Gmail, use this table to find your email provider's incoming (IMAP or POP) and outgoing (SMTP) server settings. If you're using a regional email provider, please contact them for this information.

TIP: Unsure who your email provider is? Look at your email address. The word immediately after the @ symbol is usually your email provider.
