Here are the settings for a POP account using Outlook 2011 for Mac

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

1) Open Outlook and go to the Tools menu and click on Accounts.


2) Click on E-mail Account


3) Fill out the settings as follows, using your own email address and password. Make sure to Override the default port for the outgoing server. Many ISPs block port 25. In some very rare cases, port 587 will not work. If this is the case put it back on 25. If neither works, check with your ISP to confirm at least one is open.
Click Add Account


4) Click on More options.


5) Again, fill the information out as follows and click Ok. You're done!
