How do I setup my email in Microsoft Outlook?

Although these instructions are for Outlook 2010, all Outlook installations are quite similar to each other. On all new installations, you need to only Create a New account, Choose IMAP, Put your First & Last Name, your email address (which is your account login), and your Password. Our server scripts should help Outlook take care of the rest!

If you would like to manually set up an account, please read on:
