Tutorial for setting up OutlookExpress POP3 and IMAP

Configure IMAP or POP3 in Outlook Express

You can set up Microsoft Outlook to use POP3 or IMAP.

Difference between POP3 and IMAP are following, with IMAP is used for same mail account on multiple devices. Whenever you read an email on one device, that is synced to the IMAP server and then synced down to all the other devices and marked as read on every device. POP3, on the other hand, downloads the emails to a client then (typically) deletes it from the server. So this means if you get an email whilst you are out and about on your mobile phone and read it, you will not get it on your desktop PC.

6. Enter your e-mail address as account name and your password. Click Next.



7. Now click Finish...



8. ...and you are almost done. Return to Tools -> Accounts ->Mail. Select the respective account and click Properties ->Outgoing Server. Check the box next to My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication and confirm with OK.
