Set up Email Exchange on Outlook 2016 for Mac

Setting up an Email Exchange account on Outlook 2016 for Mac is different compared to previous versions of Outlook. If you need to set up a different version, please search for that version specifically in our documentation.

Make sure you have created your mailbox in the Exchange Manager before setting it up in Outlook 2016.

If you have bought Email Exchange from Crazy Domains and your name servers are correctly set, then your Exchange Server is already set up for auto discover. You can simply use the Configure automatically option during setup.

If you are using your own name servers, you will need to manually create the proper SRV record on your DNS control panel.
