Subject: Tech: Two email accts in Outlook
From: Susan of DT
Date: 15 Jul 14 - 12:28 PM

I used to have Verizon email and set up my email, files, calendar, and contacts on MS Outlook (not Express) on the Verizon email. I moved last year and now have Comcast email, which I added to Outlook. I paid to extend my Verizon email address for a year. What will happen if I let that lapse? Will I lose all my files/contacts/calendar? Will Outlook always look for Verizon and get stuck when it cannot find it? What other terrible things could happen? Or will everything behave beautifully in Outlook with just no more Verizon emails coming in? Does anybody know?

Outlook is a robust program resident on your computer and it should keep all of your contacts and calendar and your old mail if you use it as your primary way of sending. Look in the address book (off the home tab) to see what contacts you have in there already. You should probably also visit the web version of the Verizon account to see if there is more in there that needs to be transferred into Outlook.

It would be a good idea to back up your Outlook to the Microsoft cloud so if your computer dies you have the information you can load back into Outlook on a new drive or in a new machine.

Outlook is quite problematic with mobile android devices,
since Hotmail apps were discontinued and replaced with outlook app.

It transitioned ok on my Nexus 7, but refuses to open on other tablets & phones,
insisting we now have to sign up for some kind of Microsoft account ?

Of course, Outlook does work smoothly on my Nokia Windows phone.

That Microsoft account is the portal to the cloud drive where it wants to store your stuff. I don't let Microsoft run my computer (Win 8 wants you to logon to the computer with a Microsoft account that directly connects to the cloud). I set up a computer-only password and I only logon to Microsoft for those occasions when I want to connect to their cloud storage space.

Given that you ask about Outlook (not Express) can we assume the app is resident on a PC? If so:

POP3 email pulls in the e-mail and deletes on the server maybe. Depending on your delete preferences that may be immediately, in a specified time, or never.

IMAP the e-mail is on the server and you read it from there. If changing servers be sure to get text copies of any existing e-mails that you value. If you allow Outlook to set up a new account automatically it can find servers on (say) .de rather than (say) .co.uk but if you are in the US it will probably default to your systems and get it right. I would not trust automatic set-up but manual is not a walk in the park unless you do these things often. PORT numbers are usually the problem, ask the provider for all parameters - up front.
OR -
One way is to open the second account and forward to it any valuable e-mails. Then jump ship. Telling all your contacts first. Better still, run the two side by side as long as you can. see below.

I run Outlook 2007 (2003 was similar) with 10 e-mail accounts. One for each source of potential spam. I set it up to load on demand not automatically, some are POP3 some IMAP. E-mails get sent automatically - I can't prevent that except by "saving" and not "sending". 2003 I could control the send more to my preference.

Best of luck

I have Win 7 and no "apps", smart phones, tablets, etc. I think it is Outlook 2010. Both email accounts are coexisting happily on my computer. All emails, contacts, calendars are on my computer, connected to the verizon account, not on line or in the cloud. I back up the pst files monthly to both a connected and a disconnected external hard drive. I use the second email (comcast) to mail from. But what happens if I let verizon expire?

Not sure. But a friend had a UK account with TalkTalk (aka rubbishTalk) and they have kept the email service open for receive but not send. Maybe it is time to contact customer support with that specific question.

Friend now has a BT account and that is also rubbish she can't even use Outlook (ie "app" for PC) and has to use webmail. Something to do with the change-over from a Yahoo deal they did to their own. BT is THE telephone service and for their size they are mega rubbish.
