2. If you have not set-up an account before, an “Auto Account Wizard” will open, select “Next”. If the wizard didn’t open, in outlook, go to “File” tab and select “Info” and select “Add Account”.

3. If you are in a domain environment, your name and email address might automatically be filled in, if not enter your “Name” and “E-mail Address”.

4. Enter your password and click on “Next”.

5. A “Windows Security” box might appear, enter your E-mail address and password and click “Ok” to proceed.

Tick “Remember my credentials” so outlook remembers your password and does not prompt you when you open outlook.
