  2. Click on the Tools menu at the top of the screen and click Accounts. The Accounts window will appear.
  3. In the Accounts window, click Exchange Account. The Enter your Exchange information window will appear.
  4. In the Enter your Exchange information window:
    • Enter your full Middlebury email address.
    • Enter your Middlebury username in the format MIDD\username (e.g. MIDD\pmitrevs).
    • Enter your Middlebury password.
    • Leave the checkmark in the checkbox Configure automatically. Outlook 2011 account configuration.png
  5. Click Add Account.
  6. Outlook will be automatically configured to send and receive your Middlebury e-mail. The process may take a few minutes to an hour, depending on your network connection speed and the size of your mailbox.

Note: All Macs newly configured by the Helpdesk come with the Academic version of Microsoft Office 2011 which does indeed have Outlook. However, the Microsoft Office 2011 Home & Student edition does NOT have Outlook. If your Mac has the Home & Student edition, you can check with the Helpdesk if you are eligible to install the Academic version, which does have Outlook for Mac.
