Setting up Outlook on your Teacher Computer

This is a cross-post from my own blog, Tech Tips and Such =)
I think I've been right along with everyone else in the craziness of this week. We had a wonderful convocation with an inspiring speaker, Mark Sharenbroich (see his story and more info at and I know since then we've all been running full pace getting things ready and re-evaluating what we can do differently and improve upon. On the note of getting things our district we all came back to a wonderful addition on our computers, Microsoft Office 2010 (a special thank you is deserved to all of the technicians that worked hard through the summer to get this done). The application I'm going to give you steps for today is Microsoft Outlook 2010. This is a great way to streamline efficiency in your email program and much faster than accessing email through going to the website. It takes about a minute (yes I'm serious, one minute) to setup and it's super duper easy, so let's get started...

  1. Open Outlook 2010 (Go to Start > Programs > Office 2010 > Outlook 2010) 
  2. Click Next
  3. On the window that asks “Would you like to configure an Email account?  Select Yes and then Next
  4. Enter your account information for your Live Email.
    1. Make sure that you enter your complete email address. 
    2. Click Next 
  5. You will see Outlook process your account information, this should go pretty quickly. 
  6. If you see a window prompting you for your password, enter your Windows Live sign-in information.
    1. You will probably want to click for it to “Remember my password” but if you do this, just make sure you are on your personal or teacher dedicated computer, and that if you step away from your computer you lock it (Ctrl + Alt + Delete, Lock this Computer). 
  7. Next you should see a window that says “Your email account is successfully configured."  Click Finish. 
  8. When you are prompted with “Would you like to add a Hotmail Account?” Select No.
  9. Select to “Use Recommended Settings” and click OK.
