Upgrading from Outlook 2011

If a user is upgrading from Outlook 2011 then on the first launch of Outlook 2016 use the 'Import" button. Note:

1) Be sure that you do not have MS Outlook 2011 running when you are doing the import. It will cause the import to fail.
2) If you have Outlook 2011 set to open whenever you log into your computer, you will need to disable this function before doing an import.

Outlook will import your mail and settings. The time for this depends on how much mail you have and the speed of your machine.

Once the import process is done Outlook will open it's main window and is ready for use.

Setting up a new client

New account setup is the same as it was in Outlook 2011.

From the Tools menu select "Accounts" and enter the user information requested as seen in the example below
