Access your Office365 Account from an Email Program using IMAP

Office365 provides IMAP access to your Office365 account, so you can connect to your email from mobile devices and desktop email clients.

 
 

Office365 supports IMAP / SMTP

This means you don't have to use Office365's webmail interface! You can check your email and send messages using other email programs (like Mailspring, Outlook Express, Apple Mail, or Mozilla Thunderbird). Using desktop email applications can improve your workflow. They typically offer more options, and your email is still available on your computer when you're disconnected from the internet.

Setup Your Office365 Account with Your Email Program Using IMAP

To access your Office365 email account from a desktop email program, you'll need the IMAP and SMTP settings below:

Office365 IMAP Server outlook.office365.com
