This article contains instructions on how to connect Microsoft Outlook 2007 to the Exchange Server.

To manually connect Outlook 2007:

  1. Start Outlook and click New. If you do not have the option New when you start Outlook you can add a profile from Mail settings.
  2. Enter the profile name and click OK.
  3. Select Manually configure server settings or additional server types and click Next:

  4. Select Microsoft Exchange and click Next:

  5. Enter your Exchange server settings and click More Settings:
    • Microsoft Exchange Server: You can find the server name in HostPilotĀ® Control Panel > Home > Get Started Here! > Advanced Settings > Exchange Server.
    • Use Cached Exchange Mode: Yes.
    • Username: Full email address.


      Note: You can ignore the password prompt at this point of setup. If you get an error message or additional login request, click Cancel again.
  6. Navigate to Connection tab, select the checkbox Connect to Microsoft Exchange using HTTP and click Exchange Proxy Settings.
    On Exchange proxy settings page specify the following:
    • Use this URL to connect to my proxy server for Exchange: You can find the server name in HostPilotĀ® Control Panel > Home > Get Started Here! > Advanced Settings > Exchange Proxy Setting.
    • Connect using SSL only: Yes.
    • On fast networks, connect using HTTP first, then connect using TCP/IP: Yes.
    • On slow networks, connect using HTTP first, then connect using TCP/IP: Yes.
    • Use this authentication when connecting to my proxy server for Exchange: Basic Authentication.|

      If you want to have Outlook save your password, please follow the instructions in the Knowledge Base article on How do I save my Outlook password?.

  7. Click OK > Apply > OK > Next > Finish.  If you are prompted for the password at this step you can enter it.
    Note: If your server is Exchange 2013 the server name will get underlined and will resolve into a name that looks like 20250514-db52-4776-b627-0edf7599bbe4@YourDomainName.com. Such a conversion is expected behaviour for Exchange 2013 mailboxes.
