Office 365 (Outlook 2011 Mac) - How to Set Up Your Outlook Client Account

This document will provide step by step instructions on setting up the Outlook 2011 Client on a staff/faculty computer (Mac). You will need to do this on every machine that you use when opening the client for the first time.


Due to a recent update by Microsoft you might experience this message upon first launch. Choose "Upgrade" to continue configuring your account.


You should now see the following windows...



Click the checkbox next to where it states "Make Outlook the default application for e-mail, calendar, and contacts" and then click "Add Account".


 The accounts window will then be displayed. Click the button next to where it states "Exchange or Office 365".


The accounts detail window will now come up.


Here enter your e-mail address along with your ParklandOne password. Use your e-mail address as your user name as demonstrated in the picture below. Once done click "Add Account".


A window will now pop up asking about the server configuring your settings.


Click the checkbox next to "Always use my response for this server" and click "Allow".


Once this is done you should see a window similar to the picture below but with your information (Full name, E-mail address, User name, and Password). Close the window by clicking the red dot in the upper left of the window and Outlook 2011 for Mac should now be configured for use with your Office 365 account.
