This guide is for assisting you in setting up Outlook for AdvanceBasic or Premium Exchange Accounts.

If you would like to set up your Premium Exchange Account on an Android phone, please see Android Exchange Premium Setup for instructions.

If you have a Basic Exchange Account please see Outlook Setup for Exchange for instructions.


Before starting anything a backup of the PST must be taken. There is no exception to this rule. You can find instructions at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/287070


To add an Exchange account in Outlook you will need to close Outlook.


1. Go to your control panel on your system, you can usually find it by going to your start menu in the bottom left of your screen and Control Panel should be one of the options in that menu.

12. The last step is to make sure that your new profile is selected by default. On the profile screen towards the bottom, you will find "Always use this profile" and a dropdown box, select your newly created profile, in this example Exchange is selected, and click OK. Once that is completed you can start up Outlook and it will load your exchange inbox with all the emails that are on the exchange server.
