How to Set Up Email on Outlook 2019 for Windows

In this article

Outlook is a useful email client to send and receive emails.

You can add multiple email accounts on Outlook, and if you are our customer, Olive & Lake can add them for you free of charge. We can even do it remotely using AnyDesk.

We use IMAP accounts, a two-way system of storing your email data on your local computer and the hosting server.

You don’t need to worry about losing emails from your inbox by using IMAP. Olive & Lake’s web hosting offers email storage on a secure server at no extra cost to the normal hosting fee.

We always set up emails on Outlook for our customers, but if you want to do it by yourself, this article can help you. You will learn step by step how to connect your emails to Outlook 2019.
