Outlook 2007 or 2010 and live@edu

Hello,

I am looking for a step by step guide on how to connect Outlook 2007 or 2010 to Microsoft's Live@edu service, and I would also like the best approach to do this. Hopefully, live@edu supports Microsoft Outlook rather than just Outlook Web Access.

Thanks,
John

You need to download and install Microsoft Live Connector to configure Live account in Outlook.

Download it from below link.

Once installed, it will prompt for e-mail address and password. Rest will be taken care by Outlook. :)

Smartsid,

That connector seems to be for Microsoft Live Hotmail. Isn't this different from live@edu? Please clarify this for me.

Thanks,
John

Hi, I am curious if you have setup an Outlook profile for live@edu before. The example you gave uses the autodiscover service. Will this be the service built into Outlook or is there something additional that needs to be setup in Outlook or DNS?

Thanks,
John

I cannot say I have setup a live@edu before.
At the bottom there is also another link which shows you how to configure this via IMAP...

Here is another tutorial that you can follow aswell...

John,

I checked it again and found that Outlook connector does not work for live@edu accounts.

You can configure this as a POP or IMAP account in Outlook by following below link.

Thanks. I am avoiding IMAP because it only allows one to connect to email. Somehow, I need to make the connection in order to access email, contacts, calendars, and tasks. This is normally accomplished through MAPI, however, MAPI will not maintain the connection as with a Trust or as with RPC over HTTPS. So, my hope is to not just find instructions on how to create an Outlook profile. Instead, I want to know exactly what people do in order to allow users to connect Outlook to live@edu.

The first response by Spec01 is the closest answer to my question; however, I need more specific information. I will ask another question for more specific information, since this is becoming a 2-part question.
