Outlook Client Configuration

Synchronizing your email data to a local device is a common practice that many of our clients utilize to keep themselves aware of important messages. An email client application that we often provide configuration settings for is the Microsoft Outlook application.

Basic Outlook Client Configuration

To begin your email client configuration, access your Outlook client.

  1. Select the ‘File’ menu option in the top left corner.

  2. In the next window, select the ‘Add Account’ button.

  3. You will now be presented with the ‘Welcome to Outlook’ page where you can enter your email address for autodiscover. The Outlook client will attempt to apply the available settings from the mail server to your configuration.
