Scott Campbell

In order to find your Outlook web server, you need to follow a few simple steps. This tutorial will guide you through the process, so you can easily locate the necessary information.

Step 1: Accessing Your Outlook Account

To begin, open your preferred web browser and navigate to the Outlook login page. Enter your email address and password to log into your account.

Step 2: Navigating to Account Settings

Once you are logged in, look for the gear icon in the top right corner of the page. Click on it and a dropdown menu will appear. From this menu, select “Options” to access your account settings.

Step 3: Finding Server Settings

Within the “Options” menu, locate and click on “Mail” under the “General” category. On the left-hand side of the page, you will find a list of mailbox-related options. Scroll down until you see “POP and IMAP” and click on it.


Note: POP (Post Office Protocol) and IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol) are two different protocols used for email retrieval. POP is known for downloading messages onto your device and removing them from the server, while IMAP allows you to access your emails directly from the server without downloading them.

Step 4: Locating Server Information

In the “POP and IMAP” settings section, you will find all the necessary information related to your Outlook web server.

  • Incoming Mail Server:
  • This is also known as POP or IMAP server. It typically follows a format like “” or “”.

  • Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP):
  • This is the server responsible for sending your emails. It is usually something like “smtp-mail.

  • Port Numbers:
  • For both incoming and outgoing servers, you will need to know the port numbers. The most common ports for IMAP are 993 for SSL and 143 for non-SSL connections.

    POP typically uses port 995 for SSL and 110 for non-SSL connections. SMTP commonly uses port 465 or 587.

Step 5: Applying Server Information

Once you have gathered the necessary server information, you can use it to set up your email client or any other application that requires access to your Outlook account. Make sure to enter the correct server addresses and port numbers in the appropriate fields.

By following these steps, you should be able to locate your Outlook web server easily. Remember to double-check all the information before applying it to ensure a successful setup.
