Do you already have emails with the popular email service Outlook.com (formally Hotmail and Windows Live)?

Do you like the idea of having all your emails in one place?

If the answer to both questions is yes, then this tutorial is for you!

Log into your Outlook.com email account.

Click the Settings Cogwheel at the Top Right of the screen.

Click on View all Outlook settings (highlighted in yellow)

Make sure Email is selected on the Left.

Click Sync email, then Other email accounts (highlighted in yellow)

Enter your Display Name as you wish it to be seen by your email recipients, the email address for the account you are connecting, and the password for that account.

Softwayr recommends creating a new folder to stay organised, and then tick the manually configure check box and click OK.

Your username is the same as the email address asigned to the account, enter it in the username box and scroll down.


Fill in the connection details specific to your email account and click OK.

You can find your connection details within the Email Accounts section of cPanel by clicking on Connect Devices.

You will now see your new email account listed on the Sync email screen.

Click on the X next to the Discard button to close the screen.

You have now successfully added your email account to Outlook.com. Emails will now start flowing in. To see the special folder for your domain’s emails, you may need to reload your inbox by pressing F5 or clicking your browser’s reload button.

Hopefully this tutorial was clear and easy to follow, but as always, should you need a hand, get in touch for further help. 🙂
