If you're annoyed by the fact that Outlook, by default, puts a line (strikethrough) in deleted e-mails, see this FAQ.

  • Select Add a new e-mail account and click on Next
  • Select IMAP (or POP, if you prefer) and click on Next
  • Click on Allow when asked about autodiscover.xml and then click on Finish
  • If you don't get an alert about autodiscover, setup Incoming and Outgoing mail servers manually, as per our servers & ports page ( and
  • In the username field type in your full e-mail address
  • Click on the More Settings button and in the Outgoing Server tab, mark the checkbox for "My outgoing SMTP server requires authentication"
  • On the Advanced tab, check ports, for IMAP with SSL checkbox enabled, use port 995 and for SMTP with SSL, use 465
  • Click on OK to close configuration windows


Outlook 2003 will not store sent emails in IMAP's sent items folder. For a workaround, either upgrade to a newer Outlook or check this FAQ. Setting up trash to use IMAP is much more complicated in Outlook 2003, requiring macros, etc., so it's suggested to upgrade to a newer Outlook.
