How do I manually create an Outlook mail profile for Office 365?
Configure Outlook manually:
If DeploymentPro fails to configure Outlook 2013 or below automatically, the DeploymentPro wizard will display the information necessary to configure Outlook manually.
If all of the fields are filled in on the DeploymentPro wizard, skip to the section "Manually configure Outlook using server settings" below.
If only the username and password fields are filled in, start with the next section, "Create a new Outlook profile to connect to Office 365 using Autodiscover."
Create a new Outlook profile to connect to Office 365 automatically using Autodiscover:
If Outlook fails to establish a connection, proceed to the next section.
Create a new profile to connect to Office 365 manually.
If the DeploymentPro wizard displays a server name, proceed to Step 2. If there is no server name displayed, follow these instructions in Step 1 to find the server information.
Step 1. If Autodiscover is enabled:
First, locate the server information to plug into the new Outlook profile.
It will contain a value like firstname.lastname@example.org. This is the hostname that will be used later.
If Autodiscover is not enabled:
Open PowerShell and enter the following commands:
$LiveCred = Get-Credential (use your ADMIN credentials) from the DeploymentPro wizard.
Note: Use your admin credentials from the DeploymentPro wizard
$Session = New-PSSession -ConfigurationName Microsoft.Exchange -ConnectionUri https://ps.outlook.com/powershell/ -Credential $LiveCred -Authentication Basic -AllowRedirection
Get-Mailbox -Identity user_name | select ExchangeGUID
The value displayed will be the hostname that will be used later.
Step 2. Manually create a new Outlook profile using server information.
Finally, restart Outlook to begin sending and receiving email from Office 365.
