How do I set up my Exchange Pro mail in Microsoft Outlook 2016 for Mac?

In our guide to setting up your Hosted Exchange Pro mailbox in Apple Mail, we indicate that Apple Mail is the most widely used e-mail client among Apple users. Now, of course, it is possible that you have an Apple but still prefer Outlook as your e-mail client. Of course you can. For this, Microsoft has written special software so that you can also use their software on your Mac. Configuring your Hosted Exchange mailbox works a little differently in Outlook for Mac than if you are used to Outlook itself. Hence, we have written a special manual for this as well.

Mail setup

  • Open Outlook 2016.
  • Click on “Tools” and then on “Accounts.
  • Click on “Exchange or Office 365.
  • ‘E-mail address’: primary e-mail address.
  • ‘Method’: User Name and Password.
  • ‘Username’: SMTP Username: Here you will find which username to enter.
  • ‘Password’: password.
  • Click on “Add Account.
  • At the message ‘Outlook was redirected to the server to get new settings for your account’ check ‘Always use my response for this server’ and click ‘Allow’.
