Outlook for Windows 10 (new users)

These instructions will help you automatically configure a new Exchange Online profile on your Windows machine, using the ExchangeOnline.msi script.

This information is also available in PDF format >

Before you start: If you have never done so, sync your UIS Password to the Blue Active Directory by running through the Change Password procedure using the UIS Password Management application at password.csx.cam.ac.uk. You can keep using your current password – the important part is that you run through the process one time only in order to trigger the sync with Blue, and then onwards to Azure, Microsoft’s Active Directory which ultimately controls your access to Exchange Online services. It may take up to 3 hours for your password to sync to Azure. You can’t complete the Exchange Online configuration until your UIS Password has synced with Azure, and will get error messages when you try to log in. These errors will stop once your password has synced.
