MacOS - Outlook 2019

Preliminary remarks

  • The screenshots were taken under macOS 11.0.1 (Big Sur) with Microsoft Outlook 2019, version 16.43.
  • The setup of accounts via Exchange's own protocol is described. IMAP would be possible, but is not recommended in Outlook and is therefore not described in detail here.
  •  Currently the automatic configuration does not work yet (in contrast to Outlook for Windows).
  • Send-As for distribution group: Currently it is not known if and how Outlook under MacOS can send with the address of a distribution group (no problem under Windows).
