When configuring POP3 email accounts in Outlook 2013, you can now opt to have multiple emails accounts going into a single inbox, or have a separate inbox for each mailbox. These instructions are for setting up a POP3 account in Outlook 2013.

If you would like to know more about the difference between IMAP and POP, then please click here.

1)
1)To setup your POP3 account, launch Outlook. Click on File.


2)2)You will need to click on Account settings, then again on the Account settings in the drop down.


3)You have a choice here. If this is a new IMAP account then select New. You will see a couple of screens not pictured with a new account. You will want to setup an email account and select IMAP or POP If you already have the account setup and are changing the settings, then highlight the appropriate account in the list and click Change


4)Enter the settings, as shown. If you select new Outlook data file then you will see an inbox for each configured account on the left side of Outlook when checking mail. If you select existing Outlook data file, then you will have all mail brought into a single inbox. Pictures of the 2 can be found at the end of these instructions. Click on More settings.


5)Enter the settings as shown in the next 2 pictures.



Below are how the different configurations will appear when using Outlook 2013. The first will have a single mailbox name with all configured accounts filtering into a single inbox. You can use Outlook rules to automatically move incoming emails to different folders for organization.

The second image shows multiple inboxes. 1 for each configured account.

What exactly is the issue you are having. There are many people that are successfully using Outlook 2013?

Okay so I am having problems too. Just bought Outlook 2013 and cannot get it to work with the settings listed above. Any help? Since Homestead doesn't have a 24/7 customer service...

when I try to set up the email settings after putting 110 for the incoming server and 587 for smtp server, I hit next and a pop up comes up saying to enter user name and password for pop.homestead.com. I click save and then a pop up comes up saying to enter the user name and password for smtp.homestead.com. Test account fails and then the smtp pop up comes on again...and so on.

By default, in Outlook, they only put the part before the @domain for the user name, it must be the whole email. If your email is me@domain.com, Outlook puts me in the user name. You need me@domain.com.

Does that help?

Thanks
