The Android Operating System, not only integrates with Google’s Mail via the Gmail icon, but also allows you to access other email accounts, such as your Microsoft Outlook email account.
How to Add Your Microsoft Outlook Email Address to Your Android Phone
On your Android phone, navigate to the “Email” icon, which will be located in your application drawer, and select it. Then tap “Next.” Enter the email address and password associated with your Microsoft Outlook account. Then click “Next.” Then click “Next.” The email app will attempt to autofill your email server’s information. You can simply click “Next,” as the settings may be correct. If an error occurs, you will need to manually change the settings.
Verify the port setting, which can be found in Microsoft Outlook, by selecting “Tools,” then “Account Settings,” then double-clicking on the account to open it and selecting the “Advanced” tab. Keep in mind that the port setting may be different for your Android device. If the port listed doesn’t work, check with your provider for details.
If necessary, change the “POP3 server,” to the incoming mail server, which can be found in Microsoft Outlook, by selecting “Tools,” then “Account Settings” and double-clicking on the account to open it. Enter the incoming server information. Click “Done.” Under “Security,” select “SSL (if available)” to ensure that your email account will work with your Android device, since some email servers don’t allow you to use SSL. You can try “SSL (always),” however it may not work on your Android phone. Be sure that the delete mail from server button is deactivated unless you want the ability to delete emails from your phone that will also delete from your computer. Then click “Next.”
Enter the outgoing server in the “SMTP server” window and change the port, if necessary. Cox users may find that the outgoing port is different than the port listed on their computer. For example, Central users will use Port 465 instead of Port 25 on their phone. Then click “Done.” Confirm that the rest of the data is correct, and then click “Next.”
Choose the “Email checking frequency,” whether or not to be notified of a new email and whether to “send email from this account by default.” The Android account set up process is complete. Name the account, if desired. Enter a display name for your outgoing messages. Then click “Done.” You will then be taken to your Microsoft Outlook inbox. Click “Menu” and “Compose” to send a message.
The Android email application can manage multiple email accounts just as Microsoft Outlook can.
