Set up new IMAP e-mail account in Microsoft Office Outlook 2016

Bellow you find a detailed description of how you set up a new IMAP e-mail account in Microsoft Office Outlook 2016.

 

Note:
If the e-mail address you want to set up was newly created, we recommend to login into the webmail of your Control Panelbefore you start the setup. This way all the directories for example sent messages, deleted messages or drafts are created.

 

Start your webmail:
To start your preferred webmail which was set at your Control Panel simply attach the alias /up to your domain (yourdomain.tld/up). You also can use the Control Panel module Webmail to start the webmail client.
