Configure Outlook 2007 for Exchange

Note: Before configuring Outlook, you will need an account on the SCS Exchange server. If you don't have one, or you aren't sure, contact <> or call the SCS HelpDesk, x8-4231.

Use Outlook's "New Account" wizard to access the SCS Exchange server via a wired (on-campus) connection to the SCS network (steps one through nine) or from a remote (off-campus) or non-SCS network connection (steps one through seven, then steps eight through sixteen on off-campus setup.
