Welcome. This video explains how to set up your GoDaddy Office 365 email account in the Outlook 2016 client on Windows.
Everyone who has an Office 365 email account through GoDaddy can access it through webmail on any internet-connected browser by logging in to their webmail account.
However, if you want to access your email on the Outlook 2016 desktop client, there are a few set up steps you’ll need to do.
Not quite sure what the difference is between webmail and client-based email? To find out, click the video link at the end of this video.
The instructions in this video are specific to Microsoft Outlook 2016 on a Windows computer. If you have an earlier version of Outlook, the steps should be very similar, provided you use the default menu and have not switched to the classic menu.
Let’s get started. First, locate the Outlook application on your Windows desktop or in your Windows Programs list.
Open it. Click the File tab, and then click Add Account.
Type your name, then enter your GoDaddy Office 365 email address.
Now enter your password for that address, and enter it again to be sure it’s right. Click Next.
The configuration process will start; it may take a minute or so.
Next, a Windows Security dialog box will display. To connect to the mail server for your GoDaddy Office 365 email account, enter your password.
To store your username and password in the Windows Credential Manager, select the “Remember my credentials” checkbox.
If you do not select this checkbox, you will be asked to enter your password each time you start Outlook. Click OK.
Congratulations! Your GoDaddy Office 365 email account is now configured for use with MS Outlook 2016!
To exit the set up wizard, click Finish.
That’s it! Now just open your Outlook 2016 email client and you’re good to go!
