The follow describes how to configure Outlook for your FBRI email account on a Windows 10 PC:

  1. Open Outlook via the Start Menu or Taskbar icon (if one is present on your system).

  2. If you already have an account configured in Outlook click the File button in the upper left corner of the Outlook window.  If this is the first time you have used Outlook on this PC, skip to step 4.  

  3. Click Add Account:

  4. In the window that opens enter the following information: (if you already have an email account configured in Outlook, skip to step 3)
    1. Your Name
      • This is your name as you would like to have it displayed on your outgoing messages.
    2. Email Address
      • This is the email address for the account you are adding. This should be in the format of <username>
