How do I set up my Wayne Connect email in Outlook 2013?

Follow the steps below to set up a Wayne Connect - Powered by Microsoft account in Outlook 2013 on Windows.
If Outlook on your desktop was previously configured

  2. Click Show Profiles.


     
  3. Click Add to create a new profile. Choose a name and click OK.


     
  4. Enter your name, WSU email and password.
