Setting up an Outlook account and synching it with other email clients enable easy and timely communication along with better management. Nowadays, no one is restricted to using a single system. Most of us have multiple devices and this makes it mandatory that we properly configure Outlook setting in all these systems. Outlook help says that configuring Outlook setting in multiple systems is easy and simple.
Outlook setting configuration procedure
The below given steps by Outlook help will help you set up an Outlook email account in any system or device. The steps are as follows:
- Open Outlook on the primary computer. Launch Microsoft Outlook by clicking on your email icon or selecting the email hot-key from your keyboard.
- Access Outlook information about the primary computer.
- After Outlook loads, choose Tools and then Accounts from the top of the screen.
- From the tabbed list, choose Mail and then Properties. This will give you access to all of the information needed for the secondary computer.
- Install and open Outlook on the secondary computer.
- After installing Outlook on the second computer, open the program and allow it to load.
- You will be asked for information to create your email account.
- Fill in the requested details, and click OK to advance to the next page.
- Double check your settings.
- Check the inputs for the POP and SMTP settings, located under the Servers tab.
- All boxes checked should be identical on each computer.
- If you want to be able to access the same email messages on both computers, be certain to open the Advanced tab, and check the box to leave a copy of the email messages on the Server.
- Once the settings are identical, the process is complete.
Be careful while providing the Incoming and Outgoing server details. If you’ve entered it wrongly, Outlook will not work properly.
These steps will help you operate both the systems for managing Outlook and other email clients. After setting Outlook in the additional systems, you can synch it with other email client accounts and access those emails and calendars in Outlook.
