If you use Outlook.com as your web based Email program, it is possible to import an IMAP Email account from another provider and use Outlook.com to send Emails from this account.
After the initial import, Outlook.com does not read any further Emails from the external IMAP account, so you will have to set up a forwarding service to Outlook.com.
Please contact us if you require your Email account forwarded to Outlook.com.
