CHAPTER 1: Getting Started with Office 365 > Configuring the Outlook Client

Configuring the Outlook Client

If you have Office client applications such as Outlook and Word installed on your client, you can use these instead of the web apps. This will work the same way as if you had an on-premise Exchange or Lync server. You can use both as well. For example, you can use the client apps when you're in the office and use the web apps from home or when you're travelling.

Adding an Outlook Account

Configuring Outlook to use the Exchange Online server is pretty simple. Add a new account and then enter your Office 365 e-mail address and password, as shown in Figure 1-35.

Outlook will find the appropriate Exchange Online server, authenticate your account, and configure the client to access the Exchange server (see Figure 1-36).
