If the wizard didn’t connect to your account, click Back to return to the Auto Account
Setup page (shown in step 2 of this exercise). Then select the Manual setup or
additional server types option, and click Next to display the Choose Service page.
You can manually configure a connection to any of the account types supported
On the Choose Service page, click the type of account you’re configuring (we chose
Microsoft Exchange ), and then click Next .
IMPORTANT The screen that appears next varies based on the selected account type.
If the screen that appears to you is not shown in this exercise, see “Troubleshooting
connection problems” later in this chapter for more information.
On the Server Settings page, enter the name or address of your Exchange server
(provided by your Exchange server administrator) and your user name (usually your
email address) in the boxes provided, and then click Check Name .
If the Connect to dialog box appears, enter your logon information, and then click
OK to contact the specified server. If the user name and password you provided
match the information stored on the server, the wizard replaces your user name
with your display name (as recorded in your organization’s Global Address List) and
underlines it. (This is known as resolving the address .)
If the wizard is unable to validate the information, an error message appears. (This
might occur if you’re connecting to a corporate Exchange server over the Internet,
and Outlook requires additional information to establish the connection.) Click OK in
the message box to open a simple Microsoft Exchange dialog box that contains only
a General page displaying the Exchange server and mailbox information. Then click
Cancel to return to the Server Settings page.
