Add an additional email account to outlook

I hope that you are familiar with the Outlook application, not adding screenshots. Only giving a clear description for you.

  • Open Microsoft Outlook on your computer.
  • Go to the File tab, Info will be selected automatically.
  • Select + Add Account.
  • Enter your account information like account display name, email address, password, etc. as asked.
  • Your account will be configured automatically.
  • Click Finish to complete.

You must need the following info

To add another email to outlook you just need some information like POP3/IMAP settings, app password for Gmail/Yahoo, and email credentials.

App Password is needed

If Outlook says that your password is wrong but you know that your password is 100% correct, then you may not know that webmail like Gmail/yahoo needs an app password to be generated. If you provide an email password Outlook will not be able to add your account. If you do not know how to generate an app password, please go through this link to learn.

Server and POP3/IMAP information

If Outlook is not able to connect to your email server due to server and POP3./IMAP information being incorrect and you have to recheck this.

Go o the File tab and select Account Settings>Server settings then update your server and port number for both incoming and outgoing email. Remember that these port numbers can be different for different email servers.

If your account adding is failed you have to check these server settings. Ask your network administrator for the server address and port numbers.

Email credentials

The email credentials mean your email address and the password. Please be careful while typing your email password, if it is wrong you will not be able to log in to your account.

Other information you need to know

PST stands for Personal Storage Table. It is an Outlook data file that stores a local copy of your all data. All your emails, contacts, and everything is stored inside it. If you add another email address to Outlook all your emails will be stored here in the same PST file. You can also customize it and create different PST files for different email addresses.

Benefits of using adding another email to Outlook

What do you think about it? Is it not beneficial to add another email address on the same platform like Microsoft Outlook? Definitely, it will give you an advantage. It will save you time a lot. Sometimes, you may forget to check another account if you are busy, if you are using the same platform you will never miss it.

The main advantage is using the calendar and contacts. If you add another email to Outlook you can use the same calendar to schedule your tasks, you can share the same contacts, and you do not need to open another webmail or another platform to copy and paste your contacts.

More interesting is that you can sync your google calendar to Outlook, all you have in the same platform.

Email Sending facilities from any account

I am highlighting this as it is very much interesting to anyone. Wherever you receive any email, in any inbox you can reply from another account. Just open the email that you receive, before sending click on the To button and change your account.

People may surprise that how it is possible. But you know the secret.
