    Hi All

    Ive moved a custom domain I had with Gmail (chalkylicious.co.uk) onto Outlook.com, and the web browser email client is brilliant.
    However, I simply cannot seem to be able to setup this email account on my windows phone (nokia 625)

    With GMail this was easy - select gmail as the provider, enter custom domain email address and password, then your done.
    With outlook.com it looks like the same should happen, but it complains that the email address isnt recognised, Ive googled it and there are suggestions about entering outlook.com as the domain but that then errors saying that the login credentials arent recognised.

    Suuuuuuuurely, it CANNOT be this hard ????

    Any ideas anyone

    1. Choose Outlook when adding the account and enter your email address and password, make sure you enter the right password (if you have 2 step authentication on then make sure to generate an app password to use)

    2. For Server name enter s.outlook.com.

    3. Make sure the Use secure connection (SSL) checkbox is checked.

    4. Leave Domain blank.
