With over 1.2 billion users of Microsoft office and 65 million commercial users of the Office 365 platform, Microsoft products are still in high demand. Over eighty percent of phones run on Android today, and with sixty-six percent of emails opened on mobile, syncing Outlook on Android is a necessity.
Powerful productivity features such as calendars, contacts, and reminders form a pivotal core of our work life. The ease of accessing them from all your devices is essential.
The Following Steps are to Setup your Outlook Account on an Android Device:
Step 1: Open the Google Play Store and download the Outlook for Android app. It’s a free download.
Step 2: If you’re setting up a new account, tap Get Started. It will automatically detect some of your account information. If you’re accessing an existing email, open your phone’s Settings, then tap Add Account > Outlook.
Step 3: Enter your email address and password. If it requires additional information, it will inform you what is needed.
Add Outlook.com to Android Using POP3
Open the default Android email app. Select the option to add a new account, or if it’s your first time using the app, you’ll be prompted to set up an email right away.
Enter in your full Outlook.com email address and password, then press Next. On the next screen select the “POP3 account” button. Currently, Outlook.com doesn’t support IMAP.
Now configure Incoming and Outgoing server settings. Note that for both settings you need to leave the username and password the same. Just make sure the username is the full email address @outlook.com.
