How to Set Up Outlook to use your cPanel Email Account
Microsoft Outlook is a 3rd party email client software that you can use to connect and manage your cPanel Email Account. It is mainly used for receiving, sending, and storing emails. However, it has plenty of other functions such as calendar, tasks, contacts, and many more. It is important to understand that while Outlook and other email clients can be used to connect your cPanel email, we do not support all of its functionalities and behavior. Read more here.
There are a few things that you must prepare before you start configuring the email client.
