Add Department Account to Outlook for Windows


To add a departmental account to Outlook on Windows:

  1. From within your Outlook account, click the File tab.
  2. Click Add Account.
  3. In the Your Name field, enter the name for the account as you want it to appear in your Outlook (i.e. Department XYZ).
  4. In the E-Mail address field enter the full email address for the departmental account (i.e. [email protected])
  5. Do not enter anything in the two password fields (this will be done later).
  6. Click Next. Outlook will try to connect to the mail server and find the departmental account you specified.
  7. Next, a Windows security box will appear asking for account credentials:
  8. In the User name field, remove the pre-populated name and replace it with <netid> where the NetID is the NetID of the department account.
  9. In the Password field, enter the Department account password.
  10. Check the Remember my credentials box. If you ever change the password for this departmental account, you'll need to come back to this set up and enter the new password.
  11. Click OK, then follow prompts to finish. You will need to close and reopen Outlook for the departmental account to appear.
