By setting up email in Microsoft Outlook application, you can combine the features of both your webmail service and Outlook application and enjoy them together. Microsoft has simplified the procedure for setting up email in its latest versions of Outlook. In Outlook 2010, the procedure is rather simple and can be done in a very short span of time. Here are the instructions.
