Adding your Microsoft 365 Mail Account (Automatic)

See this article for steps to update your Outlook client.

  1. Open Outlook. When the Auto Account Wizard opens, select Next. On the E-mail Accounts page, select Next.
    • If the Wizard didn’t open or you want to add an additional email account, on the Outlook toolbar select the File tab.
  2. Select Add Account.
  3. On the Auto Account Setup page, enter your name, your OU or OUHSC e-mail address, and OU password, and then select Next. If during set up, you are asked to "Allow My Organization to Manage My Device", uncheck that option. This limits your ability to administrate your personal device going forward.
