Settings for Outlook 2016 in Windows
Quick reference guide on how to configure your KTH email using Microsoft Outlook 2016 on an stand-alone PC. On this page you can even follow the steps on how to create a new Outlook profile, if Outlook does not work well.
Create your KTH email account
If you use Outlook as an email client, you must connect to an email server with an Exchange connection to get full functionality and be able to manage the address book and calendar.
- Start by going to the Control Panel on your computer. Go to User Accounts and click on Mail (32-bit)
- You can also just type "mail" in the search box and go directly to Mail (32-bit). Note! If there is already a connection to your email account at KTH but it no longer works, it is best to remove the Outlook profile and start over with the settings. How to do this is shown under the heading "Create a new Outlook profile" at the bottom of this reference guide.
- Click on E-mail Accounts...
- Click New...
- Select E-mail Account and fill out you KTH e-mail address and KTH account password and click Next
- Click Finish. Restart Outlook.
- When Mail Application pop up, fill out your username and your password, then click OK
- Done. Now the Outlook will configure your inbox which can take a while depending on current size of your mailbox.
Create a new Outlook profile
If Outlook does not work well, you may need to create a new profile that does not contain old settings. The first step is to go to the Control Panel and Mail (32-bit) (as described at the top of the page).
- Click on Show profiles. Select the existing profile and click Remove
- Then go to a folder inside the computer (Explorer) located in C:\Users\your username\AppData\Local\Microsoft\
The folder should have the same name as the removed profile (usually called Outlook). Rename this folder (eg. to Outlook_Old).
Then go back to Mail (32-bit) in the control panel and create a new profile. Click on Add and enter a new profile name Outlook
Then continue from the top of this page with the rest of the configuration.
