Outlook is part of Microsoft Suite and can be used with your UK2 email address. This article will walk you through the setup of Outlook for your email account for your website email.


Add Your Email Account In Outlook

  1. Open the Outlook application on your desktop.

  2. Once Outlook has loaded, open the “File” tab.

  3. Click “Add Account”.


  4. Enter your email address. Under 'Advanced Options', check the 'Let me set up my account manually' box.


  5. On the next screen, select the account type. In this case, it will be either POP or IMAP. We recommend IMAP.

  6. On the following screen enter all necessary personal information in the boxes provided:

For IMAP

      • Incoming mail
        • Server: mail.uk2.net
        • Port: 993
        • Encryption method: SSL/TLS
      • Outgoing mail
        • Server: mail.uk2.net
        • Port: 465
        • Encryption method: SSL/TLS

For POP

      • Incoming mail
        • Server: mail.uk2.net

        • Port: 995

        • Tick the 'This server requires an encrypted connection' box

      • Outgoing mail
        • Server: mail.uk2.net
        • Port: 465
        • Encryption method: SSL/TLS

7. Click Next


8. Enter the account password, and click connect. Outlook will run a number of tests to confirm the authenticity and will then create your new account. After clicking 'OK', you will be automatically directed to your inbox.
