These instructions explain how to configure Outlook 2011 for the Mac to use USD's Exchange mail system. For detailed instructions with pictures, please see the attached document at the bottom of the page:
Step 1: Click on the Outlook Icon in your dock.
Step 2: Click “Exchange Account” in the middle of the Accounts page.
Step 3: Enter information about your account and server.
For “E-mail address:” enter your [username]@sandiego.edu, “Method:” should be set to “User
Name and Password,” enter your [username] without the @sandiego.edu in the “User name:” field, enter your password next, make sure the “Configure automatically” box is not checked, and enter “exchange.sandiego.edu” in the “Server:” field.
When you are finished entering your information, click “Add Account.”
Step 4: Verify that the information is correct on this screen and click “Advanced...”
Step 5: Server Information
For the fields in advanced under the “Server” tab, check to see if exchange.sandiego.edu is in
the “Server:” field, the box for “ Use SSL to connect (recommended)” is selected, and “Log in with my Exchange account credentials” box is checked.
Click “Ok” when you are done checking the advanced information.
The computer should “ding” three times; and, after the third one, you are connected to Exchange!
