    There is some stuff you have to do before putting your email on outlook You must type pop3 or http, http would be the best one and then type in your email address and all other the other things. Thanks

    Allow Outlook to get its settings automatically. Just enter your name, email address (including the domain) and password and then click Next. It will then search for the appropriate settings and apply them to the account. You might get an error about not being able to use an encrypted connection/credentials, if this happens click on Next to use unencrypted ones. Your account should now be set up.

    Just bought new Dell with windows 8 and went through the start up and sign up a Microsoft 8 account and was under the impression my E-mail would go right into the Start mail? no go --- some how my Hot mail is now Outlook? I can get it through my internet explorer - How do I get my mail into the Start Mail ? I tried the standard setup.
