What are the POP/SMTP settings for an @outlook.com address? Is IMAP supported?
Outlook.com accounts use Exchange ActiveSync as their default protocol. You can access messages and sync contacts using any modern web browser or a client that supports Exchange ActiveSync, such as Outlook 2013, earlier versions of Outlook with the Hotmail Connector add-in, and mobile apps on iOS, Windows Phone, and newer Android devices.
According to Microsoft’s documentation, IMAP is not supported.
Use of POP/SMTP is discouraged for @outlook.com addresses, but it will work if you set the servers to pop3.live.com and smtp.live.com, respectively. Note that you must sign in to the SMTP server to send mail.
