If you’re setting up Outlook for the first time, please read this guide before continuing.

This article will walk you through the process of adding a secondary Exchange account to your existing Outlook profile. A typical use case would be adding a departmental account to Outlook in addition to your personal Exchange account.

  1. Open Outlook and click the File tab. From the File menu, click the Add Account button.
  2. The account setup wizard will appear. Enter your secondary account’s information. Then click the Next button.
  3. Outlook will check your account settings and verify everything is working correctly. If everything checks out, click Finish to continue adding the account.
  4. Outlook will notify you that it must be restarted for the changes to take effect. Exit Outlook then relaunch it. Upon loading the Outlook profile, you’ll be asked to authenticate with the NetID and password of the account you just added. If you’re not using a domain joined machine, make sure your use “campusNetID” for your username.
  5. You should now see the secondary account added to your folder list.

That’s it. You’ve successfully added a secondary account to your Outlook profile!
