Once you start Outlook up for the first time, you'll want to start configuring an e-mail account. The following method is used to configure Exchange Server, or IMAP e-mail accounts. We start by going up to the File tab and clicking on Add New Account. First thing we do is type in our name and e-mail Address.
We then type in our password and type in our password again a second time, just in case we messed it up the first time. We then click Next and wait while the Exchange Server recognizes our settings. You might receive a message like this, asking if it's all right to allow the Web site access to Outlook and go ahead and click Allow. Soon, you'll notice three green checkmarks, which is an indication that the account did set up correctly.
At that point, you'll click Finish. You'll be prompted to restart Outlook, so click OK, and close Outlook, and reopen it again. You might be prompted to put in your password, and click OK to continue. At this point, you might have to wait a minute or two while Outlook configures the new e-mail account. If you receive another prompt, feel free to click Allow. Congratulations! Your e-mail account is now successfully configured.
Once you set up your first account, you might want to repeat this process and set up another IMAP e-mail account for your Yahoo or Google e-mail.
