COOKOO Watch: Setting Up Email Notifications For Microsoft Accounts (Windows Live, Hotmail or Outlook.com)

COOKOO watch iconYou can receive notifications on your COOKOO watch every time when you get an email to your Microsoft account (Hotmail, Live Mail, or Outlook.com). Before you begin, make sure you have set up your ConnecteDevice account from the COOKOO app. You will receive three new unique email addresses, named ‘token’:  One token for email forwarding, one for SMS forwarding and another for Voicemail forwarding. Your unique email token is needed in the following.

Here’s how to set up Microsoft account forwarding and notifications:

  1. Log in to your Microsoft account (www.outlook.com).
  2. Click on the gear icon in the upper-right side of the screen and select “More mail settings” from the menu.
  3. In the “Managing your account” section, select “Email forwarding”.
  4. Enter your ConnecteDevice email token as the forwarding address for the account where you want your messages to be sent. (Click here to learn how to find your email token.)
  5. Check the box to “Keep a copy of forwarded messages in your Outlook inbox”.
  6. Click “Save” at the bottom of the page.

An ‘Windows Live, Hotmail and Outlook.com tutorial’ is available here, too.

Once this is done, you will begin to receive email notifications for your Microsoft account on your watch when it is connected to your phone.

Note: It is important that you make sure the option to “Keep a copy of forwarded messages in your Outlook Inbox” is selected when you set up forwarding. You should be aware of that your email will be forwarded to your email token address! But your privacy will be ensured as the emails will be immediately deleted on the ConnecteDevice server as the COOKOO support stated on my inquiry.

Did you know you can use rules to only forward your most important messages to your watch? Instead of forwarding all of your email to your token address, you can create Rules to select exactly what messages you want to be notified of on your watch. To create a rule, click on “Rules of sorting new messages” from the “More mail settings” page.

Stay tuned! ;-)
