Outlook 2010 Configuration

Configuring Outlook 2010 for Office 365

New Account Setup

If this is the first time you are configuring Outlook 2010, you will be prompted with the Account Setup dialog. If you are logging in on a campus computer, your name and e-mail address should appear in the fields. If not, type them in:

Add Account Window

Then click Next. Outlook will attempt to connect to the mail server. A password request may appear. If it does, type your password in and click OK:

Password Request Prompt

Sometimes Outlook will require a restart. Simply click "OK" if a dialog box appears requesting one. Next, you should see a window confirming that the account has been set up:

Add Account Window, Completed

Click Finish. You're done! Outlook will load your profile and prepare it for first-time use. This may take several minutes.


Existing Account Migration

If you are already using Outlook 2010 with your Butte College email account, your account migration should be nearly seamless. You may see the program icon for Outlook in your Windows task bar display a yellow exclamation mark sign.

You may also see the following message:

Change Required Alert Box

Simply close and restart Outlook. Your mail will appear as normal.
