Outlook 365 email software setup

Last updated: October 14, 2020

Setting up your account for the first time

    1.  Select File > Add Account (Windows) or Outlook > Preferences > Account > (+) New Account (Mac).
    2. On the following screen, click Advanced options, then Let me set up my account manually, then select Connect.
    3. Select what protocol you would like to connect over – if you’re unsure of what these options imply, we recommend choosing IMAP so that your mail syncs across all devices.
    4. Enter the recommended server settings for your mail account, and then click Next.
      Incoming mail Server: For this example, we’re using ventraip.email from our dedicated email hosting services. You can find your hostname via VIPControl >  My Services > Hosting > Service Overview.
      Port: 993 for IMAP, or 995 for POP.
      Encryption method: SSL/TLS
      Outgoing Mail Server: This should be the same as your Incoming mail server.
       Port: 465
       Encryption method: SSL/TLS

           

    5. On the next page, enter your password for this email account and then click Connect.
      The app might take some time validating your credentials.    

That’s everything! You can now send and receive mail through Outlook (Microsoft 365).

Updating your Account Settings in Outlook

If you are changing what service your email is hosted on, you will likely need to check on the settings you’re connected with. Here’s how to do that!

  1. Navigate to File > Account Settings > Server Settings.
  2. Ensure that the Incoming Mail and Outgoing Mail settings are up-to-date per the recommendations above in Setting up for the first time.
    If your service has been migrated, you can find your server settings in the welcome email for that service. Alternatively, here’s how to retrieve server settings from cPanel.
