How to Setup Email in Microsoft Outlook

A benefit of buying a domain and hosting a website is the inclusion of email addresses for your domain name. Using domain specific email addresses (like how I use @devadigm.com) helps add to the a businesses professional presence. You wouldn’t see medium to large companies using a gmail or yahoo email address.

Here is a step-by-step tutorial (with screenshots!) of how to setup an email address in Microsoft Outlook

To complete this, you’ll need your email address, password, and both your incoming and outgoing mail servers. If you’re a client of {DEVADiGM} or one of our partners, this information should have been emailed to you at your existing email address. If you haven’t received it, please email us.
