        Download Outlook 2007/2010 Software
        If you have your own Outlook 2007, or Outlook 2010, software as part of Microsoft’s Office Suite it is recommended
        that you utilize your own version of the software. However, if you do not have access to the Outlook software you
        can obtain either Outlook 2007, or Outlook 2010 free of charge from our website.

        To download and install either Outlook 2007 or Outlook 2010 software do the following:

             1. Open a browser and access the URL:      https://oct.collaborationhost.net

                process. Follow the installation wizard to install the software.

                      IMPORTANT: It is important that you DO NOT install two different versions of Outlook on

                Outlook on your PC. The installation process can take from several minutes to more than an hour

        OCT Automated Profile Configuration

        Profile to your Apptix-hosted Exchange mailbox. You can run the OCT in order to automatically configure the intial,
        or default, Exchange Profile. If you wish to create multiple Profiles within Outlook, or add additional email accounts
        to an existing Profile, you will need to utilize the manual configuration settings to modify your Outlook Profiles
        beyound the initial/default Profile created by using the OCT configuration method.

        To utlize the OCT configuration to create an initial/default Outlook Exchange Profile, do the following:

             1. Open a browser and access the URL:         https://oct.collaborationhost.net

             2. In the Login to OCT window enter your Exchange login credentials and press the [Go] button.

                                                 Exchange Setup – Outlook 2007/2010 / Autodiscovery Configuration | Page 9 of 22




        Autodiscovery Setup of Outlook 2007/2010 (Exchange)
        Outlook 2007/2010 connecting to an Exchange 2007 server environment can utilize the autodiscover setup feature
        to “poll” the Exchange server for configuration settings information and automatically create a Profile if the domain’s
        autodiscover CNAME record has been properly configured. Autodiscovery setup is not full-proof however, so the
        OCT configuration and manual configuration options are also provided in this document.

        To setup an Outlook 2007/2010 Profile to connect to your Hosted Exchange mailbox do the following:


             1. From your PC click on Start | Control Panel | Mail

             2. Click on the [Show Profiles…] button, then [Add…] to create a new Profile for your account.




             3. Enter any name for the Profile to help you identify the account (This example: Outlook2007_Autodiscover)
                and then click [OK].




Apptix Live Support: 866-428-0128                                                         Email Support: ClientSupport@Hostaccount.com
                                                      Exchange Setup – Outlook 2007/2010 / Manual Configuration | Page 10 of 22




             4. The Add Account Setup window is displayed. Enter the basic information for your account and press the
                [Next>] button. Outlook will begin polling the Internet for your Exchange server settings and display the
                progress on the Configuring screen

                      •    Your Name:      Enter your name or whatever you want for the Display Name
                      •    E-mail Address: Enter your email address
                      •    Password:       Enter your Exchange password and re-enter the password




             5. If you domain’s autodiscover CNAME record is identified and your Exchange mailbox credentials match
                what is found on the Exchange server, Outlook displays a message that the configuration is complete.
                Click on the [Finish] button.
                     • You will be prompted with the login screen to connect to Exchange. Enter your User name: and
                         Password and click [OK]
                     • Outlook will display a message that it is setting up the mailbox for first time use. This may take
                         several minutes if you have a large mailbox as Outlook creates the OST file (cached version of
                         your mailbox).




        You have now successfully configured the Profile using the Autodiscover feature to setup an Outlook Profile to your
        Exchange mailbox.

                      •    If the Autodiscovery setup fails at step 5 above, proceed to using the manual configuration setup
                           instructions to create your Outlook 2007/2010 Profile, or utilize the OCT setup.

        Manual Configuration Setup of Outlook2007/2010
        (Exchange)
        If Autodiscovery setup fails to work, a second “automated method” for setting up your Profile is to utilize the OCT
        (Outlook Confirguation Tool) Configuration. Optionally, if you just prefer to manually configure your Outlook
        2007 Profile, or you need to manually configure multiple Profiles and/or add email accouts to an existing Profile,
        you can manually setup a Profile by doing the following:

             1. From your PC click on Start | Control Panel | Mail

             2. Click on the [Show Profiles…] button, then [Add…] to create a new Profile for your account.




             3. Enter any name for the Profile to help you identify the account (This example: Apptix_Outlook2010) and
                then click [OK].

             6. Outlook may display a few warning dialogs. Simply click [OK] on each warning dialog window until the 5-
                tabbed Microsoft Exchange window is displayed as indicated below.

             10. Outlook will now try to communicate with the Exchange server with the settings you have entered. It may
                 take a few seconds (up to 2 minutes on slow Internet connections) before the Outlook Profile resolves your
                 mailbox settings. The setup is successful when this Add New Email Account window is updated and the
                 Microsoft Exchange server: and the mailbox’s actual Display Name in the User Name inputs are displayed
                 as underlined.
                     • The Microsoft Exchange server name of the resolved location, which is underlined, may be
                          different than that entered in Step 5 above.
                     • The User Name will show what is entered as the actual Display Name for the Exchange mailbox
                     • Click on the [Next>] button
                     • A Congratulations! screen is displayed indicating that the setup was successful. Click on the
                          [Finish] button.




             11. You will be prompted one last time with the login credentials window. Enter your User Name: and
                 Password: and click [OK]. Outlook will display a message that it is setting up the mailbox for first time
                 use. This may take several minutes if you have a large mailbox as Outlook creates the OST file (cached
                 version of your mailbox).




        You have now successfully connected the Outlook Profile to your Exchange mailbox using the manual server
        configuration settings.

                                                          Exchange Setup – Outlook 2007/2010 / POP/IMAP Setup | Page 16 of 22




        POP/IMAP Setup in Outlook 2007/Outlook 2010
        Outlook 2007 allows you to manage a single (1) Exchange account within any given Profile. If you want to manage
        multiple Exchange accounts you must toggle (open and close) between multiple Exchange Profiles.

                      NOTE: Outlook 2010 allows for multiple Exchange account management in a single
                      Outlook 2010 Profile!


        However, you can add multiple POP and/or IMAP accounts to any Profile, including those that already contain an
        Exchange account. To add a POP and/or IMAP account to any existing Profile do the following:

             1. From your PC click on Start | Control Panel | Mail

             2. Click on the [Show Profiles…] button, to gain access to all of the Profiles configured on this PC. Scroll
                through the Profiles listed to locate the Profile to which you wish to add the POP/IMAP account and then
                click on the [Properties] button to add a POP/IMAP account an existing Profile.
                     • Optionally, to create a NEW Profile using POP/IMAP as the main account click on the [Add..]
                         button to ADD A NEW Profile to the list of Profiles.
                     • In this example we are adding a POP account to an existing Profile that contains an Exchange
                         account as the primary email account in the Profile.

                      NOTE: The screens that follow depict a POP account configuration. IMAP uses the same
                      configuration screens, but select the IMAP option in step 3 below and review the settings
                      for IMAP in the following section.

             3. The Mail Setup window is displayed. Click on the [E-mail Accounts…] button to add the POP/IMAP
                account to the existing Profile.

                   • Click the [Next] button




             4. The option to create an account via Autodiscovery or Manual setup is displayed.
                   • Click the checkbox at the bottom of the screen to setup the account manually
                   • You are now prompted as to the type of account to configure. Click on the topmost radio button for
                        Internet E-mail and click the [Next…] button to gain access to the configuration screen.

        Troubleshooting Outlook 2007/2010 Profile Setup
        If you are having difficulty getting your Outlook 2007/2010 Profile configured to connect and communicate with your
        Exchange mailbox, do the following as standard steps for troubleshooting:

        1. Make sure that your PC is online and that your PC is effectively communicating over the Internet.

        2. Contact your IT Admin to make sure that your mailbox has been enabled as an Exchange mailbox with MAPI
           protocol. Verify the following information:
               • Your Email Address
               • Your User name
               • Your Password

                      Optionally: If you are trying to setup a POP/IMAP account, the mailbox must be enabled
                      with the POP and/or IMAP properties from the Control Panel by your IT Admin.


        3. Double-check the data entry of the server settings, username, email, password, etc. when setting up your
           Profile. It is easy to mis-type any one of the settings’ inputs which will cause the configuration to fail.
