The following instructions apply to Microsoft Outlook 16 / 365. If you use a different version of Outlook, the required steps may be different, but the same basic process will apply.
Before you start, make sure you know your email address, password and mail server for the email account you are setting up. This information you should have been provided by us.
Advantage: Synchronizes all folders and emails with the server and the devices (eg your phone, tablet and desktop/laptop computer) on which you setup the email account.
Disadvantage: Your space on the server is limited per email account to 500 MB. If you keep all your emails on the server, especially those with attachments, your email account will eventually run out of space, at which point you would be not able to receive any more emails until you freed up some space by deleting old emails.
Advantage: On your local devices (eg. your phone, tablet and desktop/laptop computer) you are not restricted to the 500MB mailbox size limit.
Disadvantage: Your emails and folder do not get synchronized to your phone or other devices or the server.
If you encounter a problem please try again, paying special attention to what you enter in step 4.
