    Cannot Add an email account to Outlook


    I have used Outlook under Office 365 for years with little or no troubles. However, now I am trying to add a new POP email account from Cox.net but find that things have changed in the procedures I used in the past for doing so but I can't get it added to Outlook. Cox Webmail shows I can receive email from any of my existing Outlook accounts and send email from Webmail.

    Are there some special procedures for adding the account to Outlook?

    Thank you.

    Have you considered configuring your email to use IMAP rather than POP? IMAP enables to easily synchronise your emails across many devices.
