How to Configure Outlook for Exchange 2016
After you create an Exchange 2016 mailbox for a network user, you can configure that user’s Outlook client software to connect to the user’s account. Although you can do this configuration directly within Outlook, it’s better to do it outside Outlook, using the Control Main Mail applet. Here are the steps:
2Click the Show Profiles button.
The dialog box appears, listing the mail profiles that already exist on the computer.
5Click the New icon.
An Add E-mail Account dialog box appears.
Don’t enter your email address as prompted in this dialog box; instead, proceed to Step 6.
6Click the Manually Configure Server Settings or Additional Server Types option and then click Next.
A dialog box asks you what type of email account you want to create. The choices are:
- Outlook.com or Exchange ActiveSync Compatible Service
- POP3 or IMAP
7Select the Outlook.com or Exchange ActiveSync Compatible option and then click Next.
The dialog box appears.
8Enter the name of the Exchange server and the username in the appropriate text boxes; then click Next.
After your account information is verified, a confirmation message is displayed.
The confirmation message goes away, and the last page of the E-Mail Accounts Wizard appears.
10Click the Finish button.
The wizard is dismissed.
11Choose File → Exit to close Outlook.
Outlook will close.
The mailbox should be configured.
