How to set up your email address in Microsoft Outlook for MacOS

Want to be able to send and receive email at your Porkbun-hosted email address? If you're a Mac user and you're using Microsoft Outlook for Mac*, here's how:

1
Set up a hosted email address.
2
Open Outlook. From the Outlook menu, select "Preferences."

3
In the "Outlook Preferences" panel select "Accounts."

4

At the lower right corner of the Accounts panel click the Plus + icon and select "New Account."

5
On the "Set Up Your Email" screen, type in your Porkbun email address and click "Continue".

6

Outlook will think for a moment and then display "Sorry! We couldn't find a match." Select the IMAP/POP icon to continue to the manual setup screen.

Here you'll need to specify some additional settings manually:
  • Type should default to IMAP.
  • Email address and Username are both the full Email Address.
  • Enter the password you created.
  • Incoming Mail server is imap.porkbun.com
    • Port: 993, Check "Use SSL to connect."
  • Outgoing Mail server is smtp.porkbun.com
    • Port: 587, Check "Use SSL to connect."

Click "Add Account."

Click the "Done" button to complete the setup.

That's it! Outlook for macOS is now configured to send and receive from your custom email address.
