Setup Email in Outlook App on Phone

This article will assist with setting up email on the Outlook app for smart phones.

#1 – Open or install the Outlook app.

#2 – After the app is open, it may immediately prompt you to add an account.  However, if you already have an account setup in Outlook, you’ll see your existing email.  Tap on the Outlook icon at the top left:

#3 – Next, a screen will show up with folders of your existing account.  Tap on the gear icon at the bottom left:

#4 – You’ll see the screen below.  Tap to Add Mail Account:

#5 – After you tap to add a mail account, a prompt will come up at the bottom of the screen.  Choose the first option to add a mail account.

#7 – Next, you will either get a screen like the one below or you will get a prompt from the bottom of the screen to choose the account type.  Click on either POP or IMAP. IMPORTANT: If you choose IMAP, all of your email will be stored on the server until you delete it.  If you have a basic email account and not an upgraded account, the mailbox will fill up quickly and prevent new messages from coming in until you are under your mailbox limit.
