Configure Outlook for Live Mail

  1. Close Outlook 2007.

  3. In Windows XP:
    1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
    2. Click User Accounts, and then click Mai

  4. In Windows Vista:
    1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
    2. In the 32-bit edition of Windows Vista, click User Accounts (or User Accounts and Family Safety), and then click Mail. In the 64-bit edition of Windows Vista, select Additional Options, click View 32-bit Control Panel Items, and then double-click Mail
      Note: In Classic view, double-click Mail. The Mail icon won't appear unless you have Outlook 2007 installed and have run the program at least one time.
  5. In the Mail Setup dialog box, click Show Profiles.
  6. Click Add.
  7. Type a name for the profile, and then click OK.

    Note: As a best practice, give the profile a name that identifies it as an Exchange Labs profile.

    The Add New E-mail Account wizard opens.
  8. In the Auto Account Setup dialog box, enter your name, e-mail address, and password in the appropriate fields, and then click Next.
  9. Outlook will display a message that asks you to allow a Web site to configure the Outlook settings. Outlook runs auto-configure periodically.

    If you don't want to see this message every time auto-configure runs, select Don't ask me about this website again, and then click Allow.

    Outlook will auto-configure the account. You will be asked for your username and password before Outlook can connect to Exchange Labs. Make sure that you enter your full e-mail address (like tony.smith@live.longwood.edu) as your username. You may be prompted to enter your username and password multiple times before you can connect.
