Outlook 2019 KIT mailbox

Add another account in Outlook:

"File - Account settings - Account settings - New".

Create new Outlook profile in Windows:

"Right click Start - Control Panel - User Accounts - Mail (Microsoft Outlook 2016) - View Profiles - Add".

If you have multiple Outlook profiles, pay attention to which profile is used when Outlook starts or enable profile selection.

When adding a new profile, the old account wizard may be used, see Outlook 2016.



  • When you first start Outlook, you will be greeted by a wizard to set up your account, which you should follow.

    • Email address: <ab1234>@kit.edu as an employee
