In order to configure email in your Microsoft Outlook email client, it is necessary that you should have an email address created in your cPanel.

Please refer “How to create email account in cPanel” to know about creating email account.

Assuming you already have an email account as created above, please follow steps below to configure your email account in Microsoft Outlook client :

Click on the File tab in the upper-left corner of the Outlook window.
