Good evening

Is it possible to set up Outlook using a different email address i.e not my virgin one?

I am using the older version Outlook Office 2010 and need to populate the incoming/outgoing servers and then it asks for my virgin email address but I don't want to use this with Outlook as I need to use my alternative work email?

Hopefully this makes sense and someone will be able to assist.

Thank you in advance

Yes, you should be able to add any pop or IMAP account to Outlook.  Sometimes it will automatically detect the correct server settings based on the email domain, but it is always helpful to have them to hand.  You should be able to find them from your email supplier or in the case of a works email your it support person.
