How to add an email to Outlook. Our hosting packages come complete with Roundcube Webmail as standard. Clients sometimes would like to continue using their preferred email provider.
Forwarding emails to your Outlook account from Webmail isn’t foolproof, third party email providers may have spam filters in place that will wrongly filter genuine emails as spam. Sometimes not even delivered to the spam folder, they just disappear.
So the better way of doing things is to set up your business email on your preferred email provider.
Here, we will show you step-by-step how to configure your Outlook settings on your desktop to retrieve your emails rather than using Webmail.
