Outlook easily can manage your sending and receiving email. It also provides many other features like Calendar, Tasks, Contacts and many more. So in this article, we write about how to setup outlook with your business email.
Before setting up with outlook you need a professional or business email account. If you have a Gmail, Yahoo, or Hotmail account then you can also easily setup with outlook explained below. Or if you have a professional email then you can also set up easily. The following things are required for setup.

You can follow How to Create a Professional Email Guide to get a domain name and professional or business email for your company or website. So if you have a domain and email account then you can also get the IMAP/POP and SMTP instructions. IMAP is for incoming emails and SMTP is for outgoing emails.
IMAP and POP
Let’s check out the difference between IMAP and POP first.
The IMAP allows you to access your email from any device or form any location. When you read or unread an email message using IMAP, you are not downloading or storing it on your computer. Instead, you’re reading it from the email service. So, you can check your email from different devices and locations. Your email server and your local PC’s emails are synced with each other.
IMAP only downloads or saves a message or email when you click on it, and the attached files are not automatically downloaded. With this process, you can check your messages a lot more quickly than POP.
POP contact your email service and download all of your new messages from it. Once you download any message to your PC then that message is deleted from the email service. This means emails can only be accessed from the same computer if you download them from the server. If you try to access your email from a different device, then you cannot access it. Sent Emails are also saved on your local PC, not on your email server.
