Outlook is an incredible email client where users can configure their multiple email accounts under one roof. It then requires of them to do a single login to Outlook to access emails from all their accounts, that is, there is no need for logging into separate email accounts to access mails in those. You can configure the Outlook email setup to include any email account in it.
Embarq was a well known internet service provider and telephone service provider that gave free email ids to its customers at its website until its purchase was made. In an effort to support former Embarq customers who were affected by the merger, the new owner of Embarq, Century Link, provides email access through their website. Although, by navigating to the Century Link website, you can access your email using a web browser, you might rather prefer to store your messages on your own computer. For this you can configure your Outlook email setup to include Embarq email account in it.
