In order to enjoy the benefits of Outlook on our mobile devices, we can have several considerations to take into account.
Firstly, if it is an Android phone, we know that we have the advantage of being able to enter the Google store (Google Play Store) and we can download any app we want, and in this case, the Outlook app is available.
Outlook: Create New Email Account (from PC)
To create an Outlook account, follow these steps:
- Go to the Outlook website and click “Sign up for free.”
- Enter your personal information, including your name, email address, and password.
- Click “Next.”
- Verify your account by following the prompts to receive a verification email or code.
- Once your account is verified, you can start using Outlook to send and receive emails.

Remember this: Outlook = Hotmail
How to Create Outlook account? (from mobile)
Having downloaded it, we only have to open that app, if it is the first time you are opening the app, you must follow the first inductive steps that are from the “Introduction“; then after overcoming this, just go to Settings —- Add account —- Add email account.
Now you only have to write your email account; remembering that it can be your Microsoft account; educational account; professional account. After this you just have to click “Continue” to enter your password and finally click on “Login / Next“.
Finally it is only necessary to configure and synchronize the activities that you wish, as well as own configurations of the mail with the mobile that you must activate or deactivate the permissions.
NOTE: If attempting to enter the user / email; you are prompted by the “email provider”; Then you must make an IMAP or POP account setup.

How to know if it is IMAP or POP?
Easy, if the mobile e-mail application allows you to configure the “Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync” account, then it will be an IMAP type configuration:
⦁ You enter the Exchange option
⦁ You choose your name / mail and your password.
⦁ Choose the server; example: m.hotmail.com
⦁ Select the “use secure connection”
⦁ Now disable the “accept all SSL certificates”
Otherwise, then the configuration of mail that you will do, will be POP type:
⦁ User name, as follows ⦁ [email protected]
⦁ Enter the password you want to have.
⦁ POP3 Server: pop3.live.com
⦁ Port: 995
⦁ Security type: SSL / TLS. Click and activate the “accept all SSL certificates”
⦁ SMTP server: smtp.live.com
⦁ Port: 587
⦁ Security type: none
⦁ Request to log in: keep in “deactivated”
As you will see are some more steps but with this tutorial is much simpler, however it is valid to remember that these last two types of configurations are mostly the cases for very low-tech phones; or at least not for the most current devices.
