Introduction

Generally there are two ways of checking emails. POP3 downloads your emails from the email server of the university to your computer. IMAP leaves the emails on the server and you can only check them locally. If you only use one PC to check your emails, the best option is to choose POP3. If you have several computers to check your emails, choose IMAP. Please note that with IMAP an Internet connection is always necessary when you want to check your emails.

Configuration of Outlook 2010

Step 1 : Start Outlook 2010 and set up a new email account. This is done by choosing the item File in the menu bar (see image 1).
