Setup Email In Outlook

Almost every Outlook user I have come across has complained to me about the errors they have faced while using the application. According to experts, Outlook problems mostly arise due to minor causes such as incorrect profile, internet connection problems, virus attacks, oversized PST files, too many add-ins etc. Many of these problems can be fixed with ease given that you know the workaround. Furthermore, Microsoft offers a number of built-in Outlook repair tools that are very useful for dealing with more complicated Outlook problems like corruption of the PST file.

Outlook problem due to incorrect profile

Outlook lets you set up multiple email accounts in it. You need to configure the Outlook setting in order to set up an email account in the application. During the email configuration in Outlook, you are supposed to provide the application with essential details about your email account. This includes account details, server details and login details.

The email profile you have created in Outlook may get easily modified by system changes, virus attacks, etc. If you doubt that your email profile has been modified recently, you may reconfigure your email account from scratch. This will resolve the problem for sure. Follow the below steps to reconfigure your Outlook email profile.


  • Navigate to the Start menu and choose Control Panel.
  • Select User Account followed by Mail. This will open the mail setup screen.
  • Select the link that says Show Profiles in the mail setup screen. Initiate the profile wizard by selecting the Add button.
  • Enter Test in the box titled Profile name and select OK to proceed.
  • Read the on-screen directions carefully and follow them up to complete reconfiguration of the email profile. Once done, select Finish.

Outlook problem due to the oversize of .PST file

Outlook data is usually saved in the PST file.  The PST file is located in the local drive. The PST file will grow bigger over time and start to create problems in Outlook. To avoid this, you need to reduce the PST file size. Purge all the unimportant email messages you have in different Outlook folders. This will reduce the Outlook PST file size.

Two of the above mentioned methods would help you deal with most of the common Outlook problems. If the issue seems to more complicated, use the built-in Outlook repair tools to fix them.
