Select ‘Exchange’ as the Account type.

Enter your ‘Domain\Username’ this will be the same username that you use to logon at work or into Outlook Web Access. If you are not sure on the domain name you will need to check with your IT Support department/supplier.

Enter your ‘Password’, again this is the same one you use to logon to your computer at work or into Outlook Web Access.

Enter ‘Server’ this is the same web address that you use to access Outlook Web Access (web mail), if you don’t know this you will need to ask your IT Support department/supplier.
