Automatically Setting Up an Email Account in Microsoft Outlook 2016

To use Microsoft Outlook 2016

As a 1&1 IONOS customer you have the possibility to create a new email account and configure the mail servers completely automatically. To do this, proceed as follows:

  • Open Microsoft Outlook 2016 and add a new account. To do this, click on the File tab and under Account Information on the Add account button. In the following window, enter your name (freely selectable), the email address and the password created in My 1&1 IONOS when setting up the email address.
  • Click on Next.
  • If necessary, confirm further queries until you receive the message that the process has been completed successfully.
  • Click Finish.

Your email account is now set up. You can now access and manage your emails with Outlook.

Please note: If problems should occur during automatic configuration, set up your new email account manually as usual. You can find the corresponding instructions in the article Manually Setting Up an E-Mail Account in Microsoft Outlook.
