    Changing email server info in MS Outlook

    by zlzpqx ·

    I use Windows 10 for my HP PC.

    I want to change the email server information in Outlook’s Account Settings.

    Microsoft’s website provides the following information:


    You can change the accounts that are contained, their settings, and data storage options for each profile.

    Exit Outlook.

    In Control Panel, click or double-click Mail.

    Mail appears in different Control Panel locations depending on the version of the Microsoft Windows operating system, Control Panel view selected, and whether a 32- or 64-bit operating system or version of Outlook is installed.

    The easiest way to locate Mail is to open Control Panel in Windows, and then in the Search box at the top of window, type Mail.


    Frustratingly, the above instructions do not at all work.

    How do I access Outlook’s Account Settings?

      This seems to be specific to Outlook 2013.

      “Unlike other commands and settings for Microsoft Outlook 2013, profiles are edited in Control Panel in Windows, not within Outlook.”

      If I was working this I’d check which Outlook version was in use.

      Here I have 64-bit Windows 10, and 32-bit Outlook 2010, and an E-mail (32 bit) applet in Control Panel, in which the 2 topmost buttons (accounts and data files) do absolutely nothing.

      So I open Outlook 2010 and in File>Info I find a button labeled “Account settings”. Makes more sense to me than using Control Panel.

      I don’t have Outlook 2019 or Outlook 365 or whatever the latest version is. But if I had, and I couldn’t find it, I’m rather sure that googling OUTLOOK 2019 ACCOUNT SETTINGS or OUTLOOK 365 ACCOUNT SETTINGS would find the information I need.
