Add an email account quickly

The users can add many email accounts using Outlook’s automatic setup option. The users can use these instructions to add their first account or additional accounts.

Some email providers, like Gmail, Yahoo, and iCloud require from users to turn on two-factor authentication and set up an app password. An app password is a one-time-use password that the users enter instead of their email account password. Using an app password lets Gmail, Yahoo, and iCloud confirm that they’re the person accessing their email.

1. In first step the users are required to open Outlook and select File > Add Account.

NOTE: Outlook 2007 users should select Tools > Account Settings. On the Email tab, select New.
2. Now the users have to enter their email address, then select Connect. If they don’t see Connect or they are prompted for additional information, enter their name, email address, and password, then select Next.
3. If prompted, then users are required to enter their password again, then select OK, and Finish to start using Outlook.

NOTE: the users can use these steps to add their first account to Outlook or subsequent accounts.
