Welcome to the Freeola Internet customer support pages. This guide is designed to help with setting up a Freeola email address on the Outlook app on Windows 10/11. For more internet help topics please visit our main Support Guides Page.

Before Continuing

Please visit your MyFreeola account and make a note of the following information before continuing, you'll need to know this for later on in the guide:

1 - What protocol your e-mail address is set up to use (IMAP or POP3).

2 - What service is assigned to your e-mail address (EmailPro, Free Email or One Address).

3 - Your e-mail address password.

You can find this information by clicking Email Settings in the left-hand navigation in MyFreeola, then My Email Addresses. You should then be able to click Settings & Features button next to the relevant e-mail address to view all required email settings.

This guide will outline the steps needed to add a new email account to this mail client, along with how to edit the account details of an account already on the software.

Adding an account to Outlook
  1. To start, open the Outlook App (or use the Upgrade/Try option within Windows Mail if you haven't upgraded yet). If this is your first time using the software you will immediately be prompted to set up your account.
    If you already have an account on Outlook and wish to add an additional address, select Settings (cog icon) from the top menu bar, then Accounts > Email accounts > Add account.

  2. Enter your Freeola email address in the provided field then click Continue.
