You can add and maintain more than one email account in Microsoft Outlook and easily bounce from one to another. Here’s how.
Do you use Microsoft Outlook but have more than one email account? Instead of separately checking your messages from your primary account and your Gmail account and any other mail accounts, you can add them all to Outlook and access each one from the same application. The process of adding multiple accounts isn’t difficult, and once you’ve set them up, you then have a single spot in which you can check all your email. I set up my primary email account, my Gmail account, and an account for one of my clients all under the umbrella of Outlook. That gives me easy access to all my email and allows me to use Outlook’s robust, built-in features with each account.
Let’s say you haven’t yet configured Microsoft Outlook with any accounts. Open Outlook. Click Next to get past the intro screen. Then answer Yes to the question: Do you want to set up Outlook to connect to an email account? Next choose the option for Manual setup or additional server types.
Outlook asks if you want to use an Office 365 account, a POP or IMAP account, or Exchange ActiveSync. For the sake of this exercise, we’ll set up a POP email account. At the next screen, add your name, email address, incoming and outgoing server names, username, password, and other information for this account. You can find the names of the incoming and outgoing servers by asking your email provider or by running a Web search for those items along with the name of your provider.
