  3. On the screen stating "Would you like to configure an e-mail account," ensure "yes" is selected.
  4. If you are logged in to the computer with your CN account, your name and e-mail address will be automatically filled in to the proper fields. If it is not filled in automatically, just type your Name, email address, and password in to the required fields. Click "Next" when you are ready.

        If this finishes correctly, press "finish."
  6. Outlook will now retrieve your e-mail, calendar appointments and tasks.

Note: Retrieving your e-mail, calendar appointments and tasks can take some time. The amount of time is dependent on the size of your mailbox and the connection you are using. E.g. - If you have a slower off campus connection, the time to load your mailbox will take longer.
