Ensure that Advanced Options is expanded and that the Let me set up my account manually option is unchecked (blank) as shown, then click Connect


Outlook will recognize an exchange email account, and will create the account without requiring you to enter the details manually.

Once the account is set up, you’ll receive a message confirming it was successfully added. Click Done to finish the setup.
