Configuring Outlook 2010/2013 for Windows with an Office 365 McCombs Mailbox

  1. If this is the first time you are using Outlook, just launch it to begin the profile setup wizard. Otherwise, open the Mail (32-bit) control panel. Click Show Profiles and then click Add in the next window and give your profile a name when prompted. The profile name doesn't matter. We recommend you just entire your name.The profile setup wizard will launch after this.

  2. At the Auto Account Setup window enter your email address. Make sure you enter your email address and not your username. DO NOT enter your password on this screen. Just leave the password fields blank. Click Next.

    If you encounter subsequent errors in setting up your profile, if may be because you entered a password here. If your profile configuration fails with the message that Exchange is unavailable or an encrypted connection is not available, then retry the process ensuring that you leave the password BLANK on this field.

  3. You will then see a Configuring window that will show you the progress of your profile setup. Each step will receive a green check mark as it successfully completes. The process may take a few minutes.

  • At some point you will be prompted to enter your McCombs logon name and password. Enter your username in the format, and be sure to check the box Remember my credentials before clicking OK.

    If you are faculty or staff, your logon name is your {LastNameFirstInitial} so you will enter {LastNameFirstInital}

    If you are a Full-time MBA student, your logon name is MSB{a-z}{a-z}{0-9}{0-9}{0-9} so you will enter MSB{a-z}{a-z}{0-9}{0-9}{0-9}

  1. When the profile configuration completes click Finish.
