How To Add Multiple Accounts in Outlook 2016
In Outlook 2016 (and Outlook 2013), we are able to add Exchange and Office 365 email accounts, as well as IMAP or POP accounts like Outlook.com, AOL, Gmail, MobileMe, Yahoo! Mail, and more. In order for us to add multiple E-Mail Accounts in Outlook 2016, all we have to do is to follow the steps below.
In the image below, and at the left of the Outlook 2016 screen, we can see the three different E-mail accounts that I have added. In order to check the e-mails that I receive is to click on the E-mail account that I want and I will be able to see the mails.
In order to add new E-Mail Accounts in Outlook 2016 is to select the File tab in order for us to move to Backstage View. Once in Backstage View, from the left of the drop down menu that appears we make sure that the Info tab is selected as shown in the image below. One way to add an E-mail account is from, the right and under the area named Account Information, we select the command Add Account.
The other way is, under the area Account Information, we select the command Account Settings as shown below, where the drop down menu appears with all the available commands where we just select the command Account Settings.
Once selected the Account Settings dialog box appears, with the E-Mail tab activated, where from the left of the dialog box we select the command New as shown in the image below.
Whatever way we use, the Add Account dialog box appears, where we are notified that Outlook Can Automatically Configure Many Email Accounts.
The next step is to fill in the appropriate text boxes with all the information needed.
We have to fill in the information in the text boxes next to the following areas:
Once we have typed in all the necessary information we just press the Next button, which is located at the bottom right corner of the Add Account dialog box.
Once all the information is completed and we have pressed the Next button, we are notified that Outlook is Searching For Your Mail Server Settings.
Outlook proceeds with the following steps in order to complete them:
Establishing Network Connection
Searching for ***********@*********.**
Logging On To The Mail Server
If the task are completed successfully, we notice a green tick mark at the right of every task.
If the task is not completed successfully, we will notice a red x mark at the right of the task.
Once all the tasks are completed successfully, we will be notified that We Are All Set!
Outlook Has All The Information Needed To Set Up Our Account.
All we have to do is to press the Finish button which is located at the bottom right corner of the dialog box and that is it. The E-Mail Account that we just added will be available in Outlook 2016.
