Configuring Outlook 2007
(created by I Chun Lee, 7/22/2008)
This document explains how to set up your Exchange e-mail account in Outlook 2007, as
well as configuring RPC over HTTPS that enables off-campus access to the Purdue Exchange
server (illustrated in step 8). After you complete the configurations, you will be able to access
the data stored on the Exchange server, such as your Mails, Calendar, Contacts, etc. from
virtually anywhere with Internet access.
IMPORTANT: This initial setup requires connections with the Purdue Exchange server. If
you are setting up Outlook on campus, your connection with the server is automatically created
through the campus network—please ignore this message and start step 1. If you are setting
up Outlook off campus, please install VPN on your computer and connect to the Purdue
network through VPN BEFORE you start the procedure described in this document. VPN is only
required the first time you access to the Exchange server; it is not needed for off-campus e-mail
access after you complete the RPC over HTPPS configurations.
To install VPN, please go to http://help.itap.purdue.edu/viewaticle.php?articleid=2495
