    Hey and welcome,

    I would suggest using these servers for your outlook.com address:

    IMAP Server: imap-mail.outlook.com
    User Name:   your.address@outlook.com
    [ ] Port [     ]
    [x] Require SSL
    [x] OAuth2
    SMTP Server: smtp-mail.outlook.com
    User Name:   your.address@outlook.com
    [ ] Port [     ]
    [x] Require SSL

    Also, if I remember correctly, a window will appear, asking you for permission to use your account with MailMate.

    Good luck and best regards

    @Benjamin: Thanks for the answer. I just want to add that some official instructions from Microsoft can be found here.

    @manmeet: Note that MailMate is an IMAP email client. You cannot use POP3 servers as you tried in your settings. Thanks for trying out MailMate.
