Manually configure Outlook for Office 365 Exchange Online -Updated!-

Standard

As it appears, one of my most popular posts is “Manually configure Outlook for Office 365 Exchange Online” from August 2011. I wrote that when We were still suing the previous version of Office 365, and quite a lot has changed since.

This post will guide you on how to find the server settings for the latest Office 365 version, so you can manually configure Outlook to connect.

The host name for external access will always be outlook.office365.com.

That was the easy part. To find the ‘internal’ server’s name, we can use Microsoft’s Remote Connectivity Analyzer:

On the Remote Connectivity Analyzer page, choose “Office 365” and “Outlook Autodiscover”:

RCA_365_Autodiscover

Fill in your details on the next page and run the test.

On the test results page, start a search on the page and search for <Server>.

The first result will be a string saying something like <Server>f3e9173b-0bbe-4b20-b6db-4e8e739d8dbe@domain.com</Server>:

Server_Results

This is the address of your server. Copy and paste it, and that’s it:

Connected
