This article provides the steps for setting up Microsoft Outlook on a Windows computer.  If Outlook is not already installed on your computer, here are instructions for doing that.



Creating and configuring a new Exchange profile in Outlook.

1. Open Outlook. If you see a "Welcome" splash screen, click next. If asked "Do you want to set up Outlook to connect to an email account?” select yes, and then click next. If prompted to create a new profile, enter a name (e.g., SLU Exchange), and click OK.

2. If your computer is joined to SLU's AD domain, Outlook will detect your name and SLU email address automatically. Otherwise, you'll need to enter your name, SLU email address, and Network ID password. You will then be prompted for your username and password. Choose Use another account, and then enter STLAWU\”username” and your Network ID password, replacing username with your Network ID username.

3. If your computer is not joined to SLU's AD domain, you will be prompted to log in. The login prompt will automatically display your email address; replace it with STLAWU\”username” (again, replace username with your Network ID username), and then enter your Network ID password.

4. Click next, and then click Finish and you should start to see your SLU email show in Microsoft Outlook.
