Hello.
Im not a well versed person in IT. So, I would like to cancel my office 365 account that was set up to transfer my emails from small biz server 2003 which was no longer supported and the biz it was used for is no longer but I still want to commumicate via my emails people are used to. At the time, office 365 was the only service that allowed transfer of my small biz 03 emails. However, in an attempt to reduce costs, I would like to move my emails to a free service and thought that outlook.com may be an option and continue to retain my unique email address.
That being said, I have no idea as to the possibility and the steps required to perform if viable. I also have a smart phone that needs to sync with the email account.
Although this may not be necessary, I do have compulink and have not used it in years but thought I would add it here if it may be needed to accomplish my objective.
If anyone could help, I would be greatful.
Thanks in advance.
Bob.

Outlook.com should sync ok with any device but if you want to keep the 3rd party address, the big problem is that Outlook.com doesn't support non-outlook.com addresses. You can link it to a 3rd party mail server and send from the address using the outlook.com website (but not outlook).

What you want to do will work, but not necessarily work well if you want to keep using the address. You'll need a another host for the address -my recommended method is to set up both the outlook.com and the unique address in outlook rather than setting it up as a connected account.

Thanks Diane.
I need to keep the non outlook.com address. I want to stop using office 365. I want to import my current emails to whatever service I begin to use. I dont use outlook currently other than through office 365 but I want to stop using that service. Here in lies my problem. How to do that and if outlook.com can be a part of the pieces needed to accomplish this.
Where you mentioned "You'll need a another host for the address -my recommended method is to set up both the outlook.com and the unique address in outlook rather than setting it up as a connected account." Im not quite technical enough to decifer exactly what you mean. Ive been given options to use the web host email and then set it up some how (I dont know how) or use gmail or outlook. I hoped that transfering the email from my office 365 account would be simpler to outlook.com.
From that point, I still dont have a clear idea as to viable options that I can employ.
If you could elaborate, I would very much appreciate it.

Thanks.

Bob.

move your email to the webhost email (imap is recommended if available) and you can use outlook.com to sync calendar and contacts with outlook and devices.

if you use imap, you can copy your mail that is in 365 into the imap folders and sync it up to the server.
