In this video, we will be showing you how to set up Outlook for the first time. These options can be a little confusing, especially if you are not familiar with the different email account types.
If you are unable, or do not want, to watch the video, please follow the written instructions below.
How to Set Up Outlook – Instructions
Outlook must be configured correctly in order for it to use an email account of your choosing. You will need to know your email account credentials, such as domain, username and password. If you do not have these, contact your IT support provider who should be able to let you know what they are.
Once you have the required details, locate and open Outlook on your computer.
Click on “next” until you see the “Add New Account” screen. You will need to enter in your full name and your full email address. You also need to type in your password and confirm it by typing it in again. Once you have filled in all fields, click on “next”.
It may take 1 or 2 minutes to process these credentials. You will see a pop-up about allowing the website to configure your server settings. Tick the checkbox, and then click on “allow” when this appears.
You should see three green ticks next to “establish network connection”, “search for [email protected] server settings” and “log on to server” if all the correct details have been entered. If you do, click on “Finish” and Outlook will load your email profile. It may take longer to initialise on the first time setting up. You may have to confirm your full name again.
Outlook should now be configured, and ready to use.
