Setting up Microsoft Outlook

This guide will aim to walk you through the setup of your email account on Microsoft's Outlook software. At this stage we assume you have received your email login information and are ready to set it up.

  1. When you first load Outlook, it may give you the option to add an account straight away, if so, you can skip this step. Otherwise, head up to the top left of the screen and click 'File' and then the 'Add Account' button that should be visible on the right.
  2. This will load a small window where you'll have a loader saying that it's 'Searching for Accounts...'. Just wait for this to complete and an input box should appear for you to put your email address into.
  3. Click the 'Connect' button and it'll attempt the add the email address to Outlook. If it can find it, the next screen should be asking for your password in a format like this:
  4. Enter your password we would have sent you here and then click 'Sign in'. If everything checks out, then you'll be shown a dialog box with similar contents to this:
  5. That means we're done! Head over the left of the screen and expand out your email to see your different folders available in the mailbox. Note: If this is a new email account, then you'll just see an 'Inbox' folder on the left.

If you come across any problems, get in touch with us and we'll help you out!
