Better and easier way to configure mailboxes

Good News for Insider Fast users!

We now provide a better and easier way for you to configure your mailboxes in Outlook for Mac starting from version 15.33.228. Account configuration is made easy with the new interface. When you launch Outlook with an empty profile (i.e., no email account has been previously added), you will be prompted to add your activation email account.


You can also choose to add another email by going to “Skip”. Now you can enter other email addresses and Outlook will then detect the email account settings and guide you through the configuration process.


During the process, you can always choose to manually configure your account by going to “Change Provider” to reveal the provider picker.


Here is the provider picker showing a list of service providers/email account types:


To start adding an account, go to menu Tool > Accounts..., then click on the "+" button to add new account.


Try out the new experience! Give us feedback or raise a question through the in-app Contact Support.
