Note: If you have your Outlook inbox from Godaddy, you need to follow this
article to connect your account to Instantly, as you won't have access to Microsoft's Admin Center (shown in this article)
Step 1: Go to Admin Portal, Then Azure Active Directory
To do this you will need to:
1️⃣ Click Settings within the inbox
2️⃣ Click Admin Center
3️⃣ Click show all within the admin center
4️⃣ Click Azure Active Directory
5️⃣ Then scroll down find the properties tab
Here's a demonstration of how to do this.
Step 2: Allow The Inbox To Use SMTP & IMAP
A. First go back to the Admin Center and select Users > Active Users
B. Select the inbox that you want to add to Instantly. By doing this a slider will come out like this:
C. Select the Mail tab within the slide and click Manage email apps
D. Make sure IMAP and Authenticated SMTP is checked.
Step 3: Wait 1 hour, then connect to Instantly
Once you've completed steps 1-3, you will be able to connect your account to Instantly! We suggest waiting for 1 hour so that the setting changes have time to propagate.
Free Outlook accounts
Free Outlook accounts (hotmail.com or outlook.com email addresses) are no longer allowed to be connected.
Microsoft has a very strict policy about sending cold emails through free accounts and so we can't allow free accounts in order to maintain our partner status with them.
