POP and IMAP email settings for Outlook

In order to add your email account to Outlook, Outlook on the web, Outlook.com, or the Mail and Calendar apps for Windows 10, you'll need several pieces of information including the type of account, the incoming and outgoing server names, and the SSL and port settings. Your email provider can give you these settings, but we've provided the settings for the most popular email providers below.

Find your POP and IMAP server settings

Choose your email provider from the dropdown box to find your server settings. If your provider isn't listed, visit your email provider's website, for example https://yahoo.com for Yahoo! accounts, and contact their technical support.

Tip: Unsure who your email provider is? Look at your email address. The word immediately after the @ symbol is usually your email provider.
