Configuring your local Outlook


The following shows you how to set up and configure your mail account in Outlook.

Technical requirements

  • Windows 7/8/8.1/10 with the latest Service-Pack and security updates installed.

Setting up Outlook

Close Outlook and open the Control Panel via Windows Search.

Click on Mail (Microsoft Outlook).

Select Email Accounts...

Select New to add a new e-mail account.

Enter your name, e-mail address and password and click Next. The configuration will be completed automatically.

The configuration of the mailbox is now done. If everything has worked out, the setup can be completed by clicking Finish.

All windows of the Control Panel are no longer needed and can be closed.

Now open Outlook.

At startup you will be asked to enter your user data again. Check the box so that you are not asked for it every time you start Outlook and confirm with Ok.

You have successfully added your Exchange account.

Your existing mails should be continuously synchronized.
