    What else we need to know?

    • If you are unsure whether to use POP3 or IMAP4, opt for using IMAP4, as it supports more features.

    • If you access your email account online with the website outlook.com need the Windows Live ID credentials provided by your administrator and password. The Windows Live ID credentials are also your primary email address and include the domain name, eg youname@contoso.com.

    • In some cases, if you have configured Thunderbird to use IMAP, you must configure it to put sent messages in the Sent Items folder on the
    For Exchange server. You can do as follows:
    1. To log into the email account with Thunderbird, click the Get mail from Thunderbird.
    2. In Thunderbird, on the Tools menu, click Account Settings.
    3. In the navigation pane of Account Settings, select Copies & Folders mail account.
    4. On the Copies & Folders in to send messages automatically, select Other. In the dropdown, select your user name and then sent items.
    5. Click OK.
