How to set up your Exchange Email in Outlook 2013/2016
The steps in this article describe how to set up your exchange email account using Outlook 2013 or Outlook 2016 on your PC.
- Note - Outlook 2016 doesn't support manual setup for Exchange accounts.
First time set up:
In many cases, Outlook can set up your account for you with only an email address and a password. When you launch Outlook for the very first time, the Auto Account Wizard launches.
Start Outlook for the first time.
When prompted to set up an email account, click Next.
To add an email account, click Yes, and then click Next.
Note : Your mail information is automatically inserted and the password box doesn't appear because your Exchange account uses the same password as the one you use to log on to your computer. If it did not auto-populate click this link for guidance: Configure Auto Discovery.
If the Wizard didn't open or you want to add an additional email account:
- On the Outlook toolbar select the File tab.
- Select Add Account
On the Auto Account Setup page, enter your name, e-mail address, and password, and then select Next.
