    What if I want to save copy of my messages in to the server or want to configure outlook in two different location for the same email accounts?

      Yes, you can have a copy of mails on the server by enabling the option Leave a copy of messages on the server. While setting up the properties in properties windows go to the advance tab and enable the leave a copy of messages on the server.

      Moreover, in case if you want to configure the same email address at two different location then you must have to enable the option leave a copy of messages on the server
      both the locations.

          Open Outlook and select File > Add Account.

          On the next screen, enter your email address, select Advanced options, then check the box for Let me set up my account manually and select Connect.

          Select your account type. Most of the time when you need to use this option, you'll select IMAP.

          The Account settings screen should be pre-populated with most of the account settings you need. However, if you need to look up your settings, see the POP and IMAP account settings topic. Enter your incoming and outgoing server settings and then select Next.

          Enter your password and then select Connect.
