This article describes how to connect Microsoft Outlook 2011 for Mac to Microsoft Exchange Online.
Connecting to Exchange Online by using Office Outlook 2011 for Mac requires no additional software. To set up a new Exchange Account in Outlook 2011 for Mac, follow these steps:
Start Outlook 2011 for Mac, click Tools , and then click Accounts .
At the bottom of the window, click the PLUS SIGN (+), and then click Exchange
Enter your information in the E-mail address , User name , and Password text boxes. Make sure that User Name and Password is selected as the Authentication Method , and the Configure Automatically check box is selected.
Exchange Online auto-detects your settings and configures your profile.
You are prompted to let Outlook redirect to the correct AutoDiscover URL. Make sure that you click to select the Always use my response for this server check box to prevent multiple prompts in the future, and then click Allow.
Make sure that your settings are correct on the Accounts screen, and give your account an appropriate description. Close this dialog box when you are finished.
On the main Outlook screen, click Tools .
Under Online Mode , change to Online .
The Exchange Online account should now be online, and the account begins to sync your mailbox.
Trying to create my Exchange on my Outlook for Mac. I get a dialogue box asking for a Server.
Below this, I get the comment "Account cannot be added. Note that Outlook 2011 requires Exchange Server 2007 SP1 Update Rollover 4 or later."
If it asks for server name, then Autodiscover doesn't work and that's why it is asking for the server. Enter your actual Exchange server FQDN in the field (ex, server.domain.com).
When you try to connect (via Exchange) to outlook.com the same error message will pop up and you will be asked for the server. hmmmmm? Any idea?
Outlook version used on the Mac is 14.3.6 (latest)
Thank you for any hints!
P.S.: Or is it still not possible to use outlook.com via Exchange and only POP3 is available?
