This guide is only intended to be used AFTER an Office 365 account has been setup. If you can access Outlook Mail by logging into, then your account is setup already. Otherwise, please read this article.

Set up Exchange account access using Mac OS X

If you're running Mac OS 10.6 Snow Leopard or later (Click the Apple Logo at the top left of your screen and select "About This Mac" to see your version), follow these steps to set up an Exchange email account: 

  1. Open Preferences and then select Internet Accounts

  2. On the right side of the preferences window, select Exchange

    • In the Full Name box, type the name you want to display to people who receive your email messages.

    • In the Email Address box, type your email address.

    • In the Password box, type the password for your email account, and then click Continue.

      The Mail program uses the information you entered to try to set up your email account automatically. 

    • If you receive any security warnings, choose the option that will continue the setup. 

  3. Next choose the Mac apps you want to use with this account. We recommend at least using Calendar and Mail

  4. Click Done to finish setting up your account.

If the Mail program isn't able to set up your account automatically, wait a few minutes or a few hours, and then repeat these steps. If after repeating the steps Mail still isn't able to set up your account automatically, create a new support ticket on the Crown College IT Support site.
