If you wish to set up your mailbox on Outlook, you need to make sure that:

Then you may refer to this procedure:

Step 1 - Adding CNAME records

To have Outlook configured automatically, you will need to add the following CNAME records to your domain’s DNS zone:

Name (Host)

Target (Pointing to)









Any DNS record changes trigger propagation which can take up to 24 hours to fully propagate worldwide. You can check the propagation live via DNS Checker, as soon as the record is propagated, go to the next step.

Step 2 - Connect to Outlook

In Outlook, add a new email account. The path will differ depending on your Outlook version, make sure to check this article to find detailed guidance.

After inserting an email address and password, you only need to wait for some time (up to 10 minutes). Once completed, Outlook will be successfully connected to your mailbox at Hostinger 😊


  • If an automated way doesn’t work for you, you can always set up Outlook manually on Windows and Mac OS
