Configure Outlook 2013 or 2016


  1. Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  2. Open Outlook 2013 or 2016.
  3. If you haven't configured Outlook previously, a welcome screen automatically appears. If you have another Outlook email account, click File and choose Add Account.
  4. In the Auto Account Setup window, click the button next to E-mail Account
  5. Fill in, or confirm the following information:
    • Your name: Firstname M. Lastname
    • E-mail Address: [email protected] (i.e., [email protected])
    • Password: Your current Dartmouth account password (The one you use with your NetID).
  6. Click Next
  7. A Windows Connect window opens. The first field may appear as "[email protected]", but you will need to change it to [email protected] (i.e., [email protected]). Use your Dartmouth account password in the Password field. In Windows 10, you may need to click a More Choices link to be able to change the first field.
  8. Click OK. A second connect window may open during the setup process (or later on after restarting Outlook). Enter your username and password as described in Step 7 above.
  9. You should then be notified that your email account was successfully configured. Click the Finish button. When you open your inbox, you should see your email messages and folders.

It may take several hours to synchronize, especially if you have a lot of email in your account.
