Set up Outlook for Windows to access your IU Exchange account

On this page:


Before you begin

Note:
To successfully configure Exchange in Outlook for Windows, your NTLM settings need to be set to NTLMv2 response only/refuse LM and NTLM. If you're setting up Exchange in Outlook on a computer running Windows 7, or if you've recently installed or reinstalled Windows, your NTLM settings may not be set correctly, often causing re-prompts for your IU username and passphrase. If Outlook does not accept your credentials and you're sure you've typed them correctly, check and correct your NTLM settings.

Choose the appropriate instructions below to set up Microsoft Outlook 2019, 2016, 2013, or 2010 to connect to an Exchange email account at Indiana University:

Note:
In either set of instructions, replace username with the IU username associated with the Exchange account you are configuring. If you are configuring Outlook to access an Exchange mailbox associated with an IU group account, use the group account's username in place of username. To access your personal IU Exchange account, replace username with your personal IU username.
