How can I create a profile manually in Outlook?

This procedure is not normally needed since most of these details are filled in automatically using Outlook's "autodiscovery" process when you create an Outlook profile. However, sometimes the autodiscovery mechanism fails to complete, or technical staff may sometimes need to set up a profile for a special sort of account, such as a room or a resource, and it is necessary to create the profile manually.

The procedure to create a profile manually is described in the Guide to Email for Staff and PhD students.

When you've completed the procedure, you can launch Outlook, choose the profile you've just set up and login with the username and password.
