Configuring a send only POP3 account in Microsoft Outlook in Virtual Office/SaaS

Alerts and notices

If you don't have a Microsoft Exchange account on Virtual Office/SaaS and do not wish to use Outlook on Virtual Office/SaaS to receive emails, you can configure a POP3 account as a send only account. This will allow you to send emails out of Virtual Office/SaaS applications without receiving emails in Outlook on Virtual Office/SaaS.

This procedure will only work for POP3 accounts.

To setup this send only account, follow the steps below.

  1. Configure a POP3 account. See Configuring Outlook 2016 to receive POP3 email in the Virtual Office CS or SaaS environment
  2. Once the account is setup, click on the Send / Receive and choose Send/Receive Groups > Define Send/Receive Groups (Ctrl+Alt+S).
  3. With the Send/Receive Groups dialog open, select All Accounts and click Edit
  4. In the Send/Receive Settings - All Accounts dialog, select the account from the left list and unmark the Receive mail items checkbox in the Account Options section.

    Note: If this checkbox is grayed out, mark the Include the selected account in this group checkbox at the top of this dialog.

  5. Click OK and then click Close.
