How to add an email account in Outlook 2016

Outlook 2016, available for Windows, Mac, and mobile devices, helps you organize email, manage multiple calendars and share files with family, friends, and co-workers.

The first step in configuring Outlook 2016 is adding an email account. When you first open Outlook 2016, you’ll see a welcome screen.

Click Next and you’ll be asked for your email address. If you’ve opened Outlook 2016 previously, select File > Account from the top menu.

Once you’ve entered your email address, click the Connect button. Outlook will attempt to automatically retrieve your account details. If successful, you’ll be asked for your Password.

Enter the password, then OK to complete configuration.
