Outlook Setup – All Versions

  1. Open Microsoft Outlook and select ‘Next’ on the ‘Welcome’ screen.
  2. You will see something like ‘Do you want to setup Outlook to connect to an email account?’ (Exact wording depends on version). Select ‘Yes’, then select ‘Next’.
  3. When prompted enter:
    Your name: Your Name
    Email address:
    Password: your-password
    Retype password: your-password
  4. If prompted with:
    ‘Allow this website to configure server settings?’

    Tick ‘Don’t ask me again…’ and select ‘Allow’
  5. In the ‘Window Security’ popup enter your user ID in the format with your university password (in some versions of Outlook you will need to select ‘Use Another Account’ before entering your details). Check ‘Remember my credentials’ if you do not want to enter your password every time Outlook starts.
  6. After a few moments you may be prompted for your password again, re-enter it as in Step 5.
  7. You should then see ‘Congratulations! Your email account was successfully configured and ready to use.’ (The exact wording may vary depending on your Outlook version). Select ‘Finish’.
  8. Outlook will proceed to set up your account automatically for first use, the process can take several minutes. Your account should then be shown in Outlook.

If you are accessing University information, including email, on your device then you must ensure it is protected by a passcode, pin code or other security method. The device must also automatically lock if left unattended. These steps are equally important to protect your own personal information.
