Outlook version
Outlook 2010 32 bit
Email Account
I'm using I have used Add a send-and-receive account (POP account) and added my own email address ( and I am now able to receive all my emails to the outlook account and also I am able to send emails from the outlook account as my private email address (

I added this outlook account to the desktop Outlook. It synced and showed me all my folders and I'm still perfectly receiving all emails, the problem is with sending the emails. Using the desktop app I can only send emails from the outlook domain ( and it doesn't give me the option to send through my own domain like I can from the website.

What did I do wrong and What should I do to be able to send and receive from my own domain name, yet use Outlook's servers?

Thank You
You didn't do anything wrong - does not currently support using the other addresses from email clients, only from the website. Yes, this is a change in behavior from when it was called I don't know if or when they will change their policy on this. Sorry.
A solution for my problem was defining the new email as an alias also. Now everything can be used easily.

Thank You
Check the srs files and pst files, scan them and repair. Either change the name of outprnt file. Get a third party tool. This site might help you out:
Perito, can you explain how you did this?
Any updates from Microsoft on fixing this?
I tried that no luck. To make things worse the Windows 8.1 Mail app works like I think it should. Mail is received in the correct folders and when you send an email you can choose the 'From' address. I find it hard to believe they cant get it to work in Outlook.
