You can set up Microsoft Outlook 2010 or Outlook 2013 to access your Office 365 by typing your email address and password. Outlook uses a process called Autodiscover to automatically find your settings and set up an Exchange connection to your account.
Note: You can also connect Outlook 2010 or Outlook 2013 to your account using POP3 or IMAP4, but you won't get all the features that are available with the Exchange connection. For more information, see What else do I need to know?. For example, if you use POP or IMAP, you can't use many of the calendaring and other collaboration features that are available when you connect to your account using Exchange.
The following links will assist you in setting the Outlook 2010 and Outlook 2013 email clients. Please note, all of these links point to instructions on Microsoft's web site. As updates are made to Office 365, these instructions will also be modified to show the most up to date information. The same is true if your Outlook client is upgraded. If you experience problems connecting your system to Office 365, you may want to check this site to see if changes are required in the setup for your computer.
