  2. Now click on Mail and select Sync email

POP SecurityTLS
Username Your email address
Password Your Microsoft account password


What is the difference between POP3 and IMAP?

When setting up your email address, you can choose to use POP or IMAP for incoming emails.

Using IMAP for Incoming Emails:

  • all changes made to an email (read it, delete it…) will be synchronised across all devices you're using the email address with (e.g. PC, tablet, smartphone…)
  • emails are stored on Microsoft's mail servers
  • if you loose your device, you're emails are still available

Using POP for Incoming Emails:

  • the emails are downloaded to your device
  • if you loose your device, your emails are lost (if you don't have a backup)
    POP saves disk space on the mail server, so you don't run out of storage capacity in your mailbox

➡️ For most use cases, IMAP is the better option as it gives you a lot of flexibility combined with the security that you don't have to worry about data loss. For very large mailboxes, however, POP could be a considerable option.
