    We want the option for "Outlook.com"
    .
    Next to this is the "Outlook" icon.

  13. 13
    Press down on that option to open the "Outlook.com" menu

    We want the option at the bottom that says "General settings - Size limit, format and server"

    Press down on that.

  17. 17
    Currently in this example, it says "Inbox"
    .

  18. 18
    If we press down on this option, we can see that there is only one box checked, and that is next to "Inbox"
    .
    This means that only "Inbox" is currently synced, and we will only receive mail from the "Inbox" of our Microsoft Outlook account. We won't receive any "Junk" mail, and we won't receive the "Sent" messages. This could be difficult because sometimes, as we have all experienced, we receive important emails in the "Junk" folder. Also, it can be very useful to be able to read our "Sent" emails, so we can be sure that emails have been set, or if we need to check them for any information.

    .

    If we want to deselect an of these options, just press down on the box until the check disappears
    .

    .
