Configure Microsoft Outlook for POP3

Use Microsoft Outlook to write email on your PC or Mac, reply to email, and sort email yourself. You can find out how to configure Microsoft Outlook so that you can retrieve your e-mails from your eclipso mailbox via POP3 here.

POP3 is suitable for all those who want to download unsorted e-mails from our servers and sort them themselves.

If you want to pre-sort incoming e-mails in your eclipso mailbox, we recommend that you change the account type so that you can use IMAP. With IMAP you can synchronize your e-mails to all devices and thus have the same status everywhere.

2. Click on "File" in the menu bar, "Information" in the submenu and then on the "Add account" button:
