Send and receive your domain emails in your Outlook.com/Hotmail account.
Late last year I wrote a post with steps to send and receive domain email in Gmail. This is what I do.
Recently a client with a hotmail.com account was having trouble with the webmail interface for her domain email. One solution I proposed was to send and receive the domain emails from within her Hotmail account.
Get the mail server details
As with Gmail, you will need to know the mail server details for the hosting company. In the Gmail post I list the mail server details for some Irish hosting companies.
Importing email into Hotmail/Outlook
The first step is to go into Settings (the gear icon above and to the right of the email listing).
And then click View all Outlook settings, then Sync email and Other email accounts.
You begin by entering the display name (the text that recipients will see instead of your email address), the email address and the password for the email account. You will need to check the Manually configure account settings (POP, IMAP, or send-only account) checkbox.
Mail Server Settings
When you click OK the dialog will expand to allow you enter the POP/SMTP server settings.
If you have entered all the details correctly you will be returned to the Sync email settings page. Here you can set the default From address. When you compose an email you can choose whether to use your Hotmail/Outlook email as the From or the newly added external email account.
If you don’t see the From button when composing an email you may have to enable it in the Compose and reply section of the settings – the Always show From checkbox.
Make sure to click Save if you make a change.
Start sending emails
Now you can send emails as the domain email. You can select the domain email from the dropdown when you click the From button at the top of the new email page
Outlook.com will check your POP3 email server about once per hour.
