How to configure POP in Outlook? How to configure IMAP in Outlook?


How to configure POP in Outlook? How to configure IMAP in Outlook?


  1. How to setup Outlook for an IMAP or POP account accessing paid or free mail server? Go to Outlook, click on File at top-left and select Account settings


  2. Manually create a mail profile as usual. On Account Type, choose POP or IMAP according to your preference. Enter your account name and password which you just obtained from your administrator.


  3. Click on More settings to the right. Click on Outgoing Server tab and check the box of My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication.
  4. Go to next tab of Advanced, check the box of This server requires an encrypted connection (SSL) and the port number will change to 995 for POP and 993 for IMAP.
  5. Then, change Outgoing server (SMTP): to 587 if value of Use the following type of encryption connection: is TLS.
  6. Change Outgoing server (SMTP): to 465 if value of Use the following type of encryption connection: is SSL.
  7. Click OK to exit and OK all the way.
Now we can use Outlook’s mail feature through IMAP or POP. But what about contacts and calendars? There is an Outlook add-in called EVOCollaborator for Outlook and it is able to handle this type of 2-steps verification process in Gmail, iCloud and Yahoo!. You can download it from EVO Official website and try it out.

EVO Collaborator for Outlook is compatible with:
  1. Public contact, calendar, task services such as Gmail, iCloud, Yahoo! and fruux

    Notes: ECO supports Gmail’s 2-step verification, Yahoo!’s App passwords and upcoming iCloud’s 2-step verification. 
  2. On-premise CardDAV/CalDAV servers such as EVO Mail Server, Mac OS X Server, OwnCloud and Zimbra
After ECO installation, any contact, calendar and task items created by other means of mobile devices or web-based interface will be synced to Outlook and vice versa.

For all items before ECO installation, you may manually select items and upload them to your CardDAV/CalDAV account.

I think it is worth every penny of it.

Please refer to the following links on how to sync popular CardDAV/CalDAV services with Outlook.
  1. Sync iCloud with Outlook
  2. Sync Mac OS X, Zimbra or OwnCloud with Outlook
