As the first step, launch Microsoft Outlook. You may launch the application by using the application's shortcut on your Desktop or taskbar or by locating the same in the Start menu pop labeled under the All Programs list.
To launch the application, click on the shortcut (desktop link) or the plug-in placed on the taskbar. Now to launch the application from the Start menu, click on the Windows orb placed on the bottom left end of the home screen. Alternatively, you may launch the Start menu using the keyboard shortcut key.
Select the All Programs label from the Start menu pop up. The All Programs menu will list down all the programs and applications installed on the system. From the All Programs submenu, select the label that reads Microsoft Outlook.  
Click on the Tools label, placed on the menu bar on top. From the Tools dropdown, select the Accounts or E-mail accounts label. If you are using the Outlook 2003 version, you will find the Accounts label in the Tools dropdown and if you are using the 2007 or 2010 version, you will have the E-mail accounts label.
Click on the label to add a new email account in the Accounts or E-mail accounts label, depending on the version that you are running.
Type the necessary details into the email account information window. Select the server type for your email account. You may choose Exchange, POP and IMAP for the same.
If you have chosen POP and IMAP account types, you would be asked to enter your name, email address, password and the incoming and outgoing server information. For configuring Exchange accounts on Microsoft Outlook, you will have to enter your profile name and email address. You may also be prompted to enter your username and password at the time of auto-configuration process.
If you require more additional configuration settings details, click on the more settings label. Your server may ask you to provide authentication for the outgoing SMTP server. You may also be asked to change your port numbers for the incoming and outgoing servers.
