Click “Next,” and then “Finish.”If you encounter any challenges setting up your IMAP, use the Microsoft guide provided on their website.
It might interest you to get some Windows Live Mail help about errors you might encounter.
Microsoft outlines these errors by their codes, types, and description.
However, there have been error reports from IMAP users.
If you experience such errors as Server Error 3219 and Windows Live Mail Error ID 0x8DE00005, then read on for your solution.
These errors indicate that you can no longer use the old technology, Delta Sync protocol, on your account anymore. Next, when prompted “Let devices and apps use POP but don’t allow them to delete messages,” click Yes5. Once you’ve enabled POP3, head to your Windows Live Mail. Tick the box that reads “Manually configure server settings”3.
Although Microsoft provides detailed instructions on how to set up IMAP on your account, there have been reports of error messages on such accounts. If your experience with the IMAP has been a non-functioning email, then you may want to set up a POP3 instead. There you’ll create a new account for your old email address. Next, choose “POP” using the server “address pop-mail.outlook.com,” and choose “Port: 995” with a secure connection (Secure Socket Layer or SSL); this sets up “Incoming server information.”4.
The types of errors include general errors, Winsock errors, Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) errors, HTTPMail errord, Network News Transport Protocol (NNTP) errors, Remote access errors, and Internet Message Access Protocol (IMAP) errors.
Details on these can be found on Microsoft’s support page.
