    Mail Server Address


    I am trying to add a new email address to my Outlook email server. I tried to install it automatically but it keeps asking for my mail server. How do I find out what my mail server is. I have Windows 10, Office 365, Outlook 2016.

    any help would be appreciated

    Is the new address being provided by your ISP/Internet Service Provider? Or are you using Online/Webmail such as Outlook.com, Yahoo, Gmail, etc.?

    Does Office 365/Outlook 2016 have an Outlook email server ?
    I use MS Office 2010, and use the MS Office client program Outlook 2010 in W10 and W7.
    I don't have an Outlook email server.
    Maybe things are different in Office 365/Outlook 2016 ?

    Post a screen print of the error message.

    I might be able to help if you need server addresses for setting up an Outlook.com email address in an Outlook client program.
    I can't help if you have an Outlook email server.
