How to Configure Outlook for Windows for Microsoft 365

Microsoft 365 E-Mail Setup

You can configure Microsoft Outlook to access your Office 365 account by setting up an Exchange connection. An Exchange connection provides access your email, calendar, contacts, and tasks in Outlook.

You will first need to make sure that you have a current version of Outlook designed to work with Microsoft 365. Please open a ticket with the Pylon Service Desk for assistance with installation. Alternatively, Outlook downloads are available on the top right of your Microsoft 365 Portal.
