Outlook Email Software Setup – 2013 to 2019
Are you looking to update your account settings instead? Find our guide for that here.
Before setting up email on your device(s), you will need to have purchased cPanel shared hosting and set up any required mailbox(es) for your domain OR purchased and configured dedicated email hosting mailbox(es) for your domain.
Once you’ve created a mailbox using one of these methods, you will be able to retrieve server settings from cPanel. If you’re using Dedicated Email Hosting, this will be in the welcome email we send out once your mailbox is configured.
