Posted by , Last modified by Ashley L on 22 November 2019 02:04 PM

Before we begin, please make sure you have the following information handy:

Ready? Ok! launch Outlook, then select Tools > Accounts... from the menu bar:


In the Accounts dialog, click the icon beside E-mail Account:


  • In the Enter your account informtion dialog, enter your email address and password
  • For User Name: enter your full email address again
  • Choose the proper Type: (either POP or IMAP are applicable here)
  • Enter your Incoming server. You have a choice here:
    • mail.yourdomain.com - Easiest to remember, but can cause pesky security certificate warnings in the future
    • s#.fused.com - Harder to remember, but bulletproof. Replace # with your actual server number
  • Select the option to Use SSL to connect
  • Enter your Outgoing server. As with the Incoming server, you have a choice here:
    • mail.yourdomain.com - Easiest to remember, but can cause pesky security certificate warnings in the future
    • s#.fused.com - Harder to remember, but bulletproof. Replace # with your actual server number
  • Select the option to Override default port and set it to 465
  • Select the option to Use SSL to connect
  • Click "Add Account" to proceed

NOTE: use your own information here, not the sample details shown!


You may be prompted that "Microsoft Outlook wants to use your confidential information..." This is expected, and you can select Always Allow.


We have one last setting to configure before we're done. Click the More Options... button, and then set Authentication: to Use Incoming Server Info.

 

That's it! You're done. Oulook for Mac is now set up and using SSL to keep your email safe and secure.
