As you know, Outlook.com e-mail services come from Hotmail e-mail services and are provided for free. Starting in 2016, Microsoft made the change again in relation to its email service. Microsoft moved the Outlook.com account to the Exchange Online Office 365 mail server (which is supported by Office 365).
As we all know, Microsoft provides an Exchange Online account as an email solution hosted via Office 365. This means that the Outlook.com account has been migrated to the enterprise-class email infrastructure of Office. 365 free, certainly has many advantages.
Microsoft has started this migration process in early 2016 and is being phased in. U.S. accounts make the first turn and then follow most accounts. Move all targeted accounts to completion by the end of 2016.
To find out if your mailbox has been moved, you can visit the Outlook.com website. Once your mailbox has been moved, you will find the Outlook Mail label in the upper left corner of the Outlook.com website, otherwise you will still find the Outlook.com label.
Microsoft migration affects how you configure Microsoft Outlook using Outlook.com. If you use Microsoft Outlook 2007 or 2010 and your account is not migrated to the Outlook Mail (Exchange) platform, Outlook.com (Hotmail) provides access through the special connector, the Outlook Connector Hotmail.
If your account still is not migrated to the Outlook Mail (Exchange) platform and you are using Microsoft Outlook 2013 or 2016, you can connect to your Outlook.com (Hotmail) account through Exchange Active Sync ( EAS).
This is different when your Outlook.com (Hotmail) account has been moved to the Outlook Mail (Exchange) platform and you are using Microsoft Outlook 2013 or 2016. Configure Microsoft Outlook 2013 or 2016 with your Outlook account. com has been stored on the Outlook Mail (Exchange) platform is quite easy.
Microsoft Outlook will use the Auto-Detect service to automatically configure it. You can just configure it using automatic account setup and use the email address stored on the Outlook.com platform (@hotmail, @live, @msn, @passport).
In this article, I will configure Microsoft Outlook 2016 with Outlook.com using @@mailmail. The author has previously checked and it looks like the account has been moved to the Outlook Mail platform with the Outlook Mail label screen.
You need to know that configuring Microsoft Outlook 2013 or 2016 with Outlook.com whose account is hosted on the Outlook messaging platform does not support manual methods. Here’s how to configure Microsoft Outlook with Outlook.com through Auto Account Setup:
The first time you run Microsoft Outlook 2016. Assuming you have just configured Microsoft Outlook 2016, no email account has been added. You will find the Welcome to Microsoft Outlook 2016 dialog box. Click the Next button to continue.
In the Microsoft Outlook Account Setup dialog box, make sure the radio button (radio button) is selected (1) and then click the Next button to continue (2).
In the Add Account dialog box, make sure you have selected the radio button (radio button) Email account button (1), then enter your name in the Name text box (2), enter your email address in the box Text E-mail Address (3)), enter your email account password in the Password text box (4), repeat the password entry in the Re-enter password text box, and then click the Next to continue.
Still in the Add Account dialog, the process of configuring additional accounts will begin. This process takes a few minutes (about 15 minutes).
Then, the Windows Security dialog box will appear, you will need to re-enter your email account password, select the Remember me credentials check box, and then click the OK button.
The configuration is resumed, does not take much time. When finished, click the Finish button because it’s enough to get here. If you check the box (Change box) Change account settings and then click the Next button, there are some other settings that may actually be ignored.
Microsoft Outlook will then open by email and the email account is added. If you have many emails, the process of importing into Microsoft Outlook will take a little longer.
