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

In our guide to setting up your Hosted Zimbra 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 Zimbra 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.

  • Open Outlook for Mac.
  • Click “the globe” and then “Add email account.
