Configuring Outlook on Windows
This tutorial applies to the following operating system(s):
The Outlook mail client can be used to automatically check your UI email, and makes it easy to check multiple email accounts at once.
For best results, use Office 2010 or newer. New features for Office 365 can cause compatibility issues in previous versions, such as Outlook 2007.
Open Outlook. If you don’t have any other email accounts set up, you will be asked if you want to set up Outlook to connect to an email account. Make sure yes is selected and press Next.
Enter your name, your full email address, and NetID Password twice. If you use your NetID to log into this computer, it may auto-fill these fields.
Outlook should automatically retrieve the server settings and information. During the second step, it might ask you to re-enter your UI email address and password. Check "Remember my credentials" if you want to avoid re-entering them each time you open Outlook. Click Finish once the settings have been configured.
If you have another account setup in Outlook, it will start without prompting an account settings window to enter your UI account information. You can bring up this window by selecting “File > Account Settings” and then “Account Settings” again.
Under “Email” press the “New...” button to bring up the “Add Account” window.
Enter your information as outlined in the steps above.
Once you click Finish, Outlook may prompt you to close and restart Outlook before the new account will show up.
After you reopen Outlook, the new account will appear in the navigation pane on the left.
