Outlook.com IMAP Mail Server Settings

You have to follow exactly the same procedure as above, except that you need to select IMAP as your email account type (and not POP).

Account type: IMAP
Incoming mail server: imap-mail.outlook.com
Outgoing mail server (SMTP): smtp-mail.outlook.com

Logon Information:
User Name: your @outlook.com email address
Password: your @outlook.com password

Then click on the “More Settings” button:
Outgoing Server tab: mark the box “My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication” and select “use same settings as my incoming mail server”.

Advanced tab – Server Port Numbers:
Incoming server (POP3): port 993
– you must also mark the box “this server requires an encrypted connection (SSL)”
Outgoing server (SMTP): port 587
– you must also choose “TLS” for the option “Use the following types of encrypted connection”.

You can use the same Outlook.com IMAP server settings for any other email app, including iOS or Android Email apps.
