Outlook Email Account Query

Found 3rd Feb 2011
Ok guys how do you set up just an outlook email address?

Is outlook just for syncing up past email accounts?

The only time I was able to manage and control my email through Outlook was when I worked for th computer games company in Dundee. I loved the system and have never been able to use it again since the company went bust.

I have opened up Outlook then, when asked, I have typed in name.surname@yahoo.co.uk and password
It searches for a bit then stops with an error

I have no idea how it works but would certainly like to have the functionality of the program once again

I have so many email address

yahoo, o2, Hotmail etc

Do you need to use an old email address like Yahoo or can you set up a brand new email through Outlook and use that for ages?

Personally gmail has a brilliant online interface for just about everything you could need email wise and more.
But if you'd like outlook to access it you can change a setting in gmail to turn on pop or Imap access which will allow outlook to access your account.
Gmail has good help pages which will assist you with the settings.

Yeh I was finding it hard to get Yahoo to work

Gmail was so easy

Gmail has imap support for free which makes it a good choice to use through Outlook instead of the POP interface many still only offer.

I think OP means he has a gmail account being accessed via outlook. I do this and request gmail to archive emails once outlook has received them. That way they are stored in outlook and also in gmail for online access
