Microsoft Outlook email service is one of the choices that people consider when it comes to webmail services. After all, you do not have to go to any website to check your email because Outlook has an in-built webmail feature that you can use right there at home or office.

6) On the Account Settings page, enter your POP3 or IMAP4 server name and click “Next.”

8) For the “Incoming mail server,” enter your Email address (User Name), password and select SSL or Not.
9) The Outgoing Mail Server will be something like smtp.outlook.com; in that case, put in your email address in both Email addresses.
