Set up Email Exchange on Outlook 2016

Setting up an Email Exchange account for Outlook 2016 is different than it is for 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, then you can continue.

The main difference between Outlook 2016 and the previous versions of the program is that manual setup of Exchange Email accounts is no longer supported. As such, the automatic setup settings must be used. 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 do not need to do anything else.

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