  • Applicable to

    All email accounts on SherWeb’s Exchange
  • Prerequisite

     

    You must have an Exchange email account with SherWeb and a valid copy of Outlook 2013, 2016 or 2019. 

  • How to

     

    Unlike previous versions of Outlook, which allowed you to add an e-mail account either manually or automatically, Outlook 2016 and 2019 only connect to Exchange using Autodiscover, which is the Exchange service that configures accounts settings automatically.

     

    There is no manual method to add an Exchange account to Outlook 2016 or 2019.

     

    In order for Outlook to reach Autodiscover, a DNS entry must be added in your domain’s public DNS. Refer to this guide to learn more.

      

    Once you have confirmed that your Autodiscover record has been created, follow the steps below to add your SherWeb Exchange account to Outlook 2016 or 2019.
