    windows 10 MAIL


    I have got new computer and was getting my mail using MAIL(outlook/Hotmail).
    But I am getting a lot of spam ,so thought id try Spamfighter.
    After a lot of searching I find I'm connecting thro IMAP and I need to use POP3 ?
    But as I'm signed in with Microsoft it tied my email account thro IMAP and I cant delete it.I searched your site and web but found no advice .
    I could do reinstall>delete Microsoft sign in ?,
    I was wondering if I can set up my same Hotmail address as a second "pop account" ?
    Any advice would help.
    regards

    Is this what you mean, not just for the app, but, your account in general:

    Change email account settings - Outlook

    How do I change outlook from IMAP to POP - Microsoft Community

    The settings for hotmail are the same as outlook. They are the same thing(for quite some time now), just under different names.
    hotmail is now outlook - Bing

    I'm getting confused cliff s,
    I have mail app which connects using IMAP, MAIL will not let you alter or delete the account.
    and it is the MAIL app that calls up my mail.??
