Adding a mailbox connected to an Office 365 email address Follow

You can add another mailbox to your Outpost account any time.

This article will show you how to add a new mailbox using an Office 365 address you own. We're assuming that you've already started your Outpost account.

Note: Outpost will import all of your email history. To ensure a smooth transition, you may want to clean up your Office 365 inbox before you connect to Outpost.

  1. At the upper right hand corner of your window, click on the Settings icon:

  7. Outpost defaults to showing the mailbox email address as the "send email as" name. If you like, you can change this to a name your recipients will recognize:

  8. Finally, enter a mailbox signature. This signature will appear on all messages sent from this mailbox:

    Note: If a user also creates a personal email signature, then any messages they send from this mailbox will display their personal signature above the mailbox signature.

  9. Click Connect Mailbox:

    Note: You can use Outpost, and even log out, while your email history import is in progress.
