Ensure you are using the most recent version of Outlook and your operating system is up to date.

Adding an Account

  1. Open Outlook:
    1. If you are adding the first account, it will search for possible accounts first. Once this is finished you will be able to change or continue with the found account.
    2. If you are adding an additional account, click File and then Add an account.
  2. Make sure you type in your full Swarthmore email address and click Connect.
  3. You will be brought to the usual Swarthmore login screen. Type in your Swarthmore username and password and click Login.
  4. Authenticate with Duo. Choose your preferred method to do so.
  5. A list of permissions will appear. Scroll to the bottom and click Allow.
  6. On the last screen, you will be given the option to Set up Outlook on my phone, too. You can choose to leave this checked or not. To finish, click Done.

It will take a few minutes for all of your mail to load. Outlook will also have sent you a test email during the setup process.
