1. Add Office365 to Mac Mail
Start Mac Mail
You should be prompted for which type of account you
would like to setup, if not Select Preferences under the ‘Mail’ menu.
Note: If you were not prompted to choose a mail account then proceed with steps C and D, otherwise skip to Step 2.
Add New Account – select + at bottom of window
2. Enter Office365 credentials
Enter your Full Name (e.g. Bruce Banner) as you wish it
to appear on sent email.
Enter your University password and click on ‘Continue’.
Note: Currently on Mac OS 10.9.2 it is required to put in a bogus password and then manually configure your account, server name will be Outlook.Office365.com. 10.9.4 appears to fix this issue.
Note: The first screenshot is the screen you will see if Mac Mail automatically prompted for an account. The 2nd screenshot is if you manually added the account through the Accounts screen.
The most likely error that you may receive will be
“unable to verify account” and is caused by a wrong email address or password –
be sure this information is correct.
Once your account is found you will receive a message
indicating it was found, validate the information and click on ‘Continue’.
Decide at this point if you wish to sync contacts and
calendars with Office365. Any changes to Address Book or iCal after
Mail configuration is complete must be handled within Address Book or iCal and
click on ‘Done”.
Mac mail will now take you to the main email screen where
you will see any email in your Office365 account.
b. Send a test email from your new account to another use and validate it
