Hello Tpetite,

Thanks for your question about Office 365's version of Outlook.  When I look around at other instructions, they still point to Outlook 2016.  It should be similar - I'll provide a link to the Microsoft instructions to set it up.

You will also need to first set up an email account in cPanel. You will then need to decide if you're going to use POP or IMAP, then get your email settings from this link.

These are the instructions provided from Microsoft. You will need to use the Advanced Setup instructions.  Add your Incoming and Outgoing server settings that you got earlier, make sure you add your email address and password for the credentials to access the servers. 


This is a copy of the instructions from the article:

If you need to enter specific values for incoming and outgoing server names, port numbers, or SSL settings, you can use Outlook's advanced setup option. You can use these instructions to add a POP or IMAP account to Outlook.

  1. Open Outlook and select File > Add Account.

  2. On the next screen, enter your email address, select Advanced options, then check the box for Let me set up my account manually and select Connect.

  3. Select your account type. Most of the time when you need to use this option, you'll select IMAP.

  4. The Account settings screen should be pre-populated with most of the account settings you need. However, if you need to look up your settings, see the POP and IMAP account settings topic. Enter your incoming and outgoing server settings and then select Next.

  5. Enter your password and then select Connect.




I hope that helps!  If you have any further questions or comments, please let us know.

Kindest Regards,
