Configuring Outlook for Mac 2016

This document assumes that you are setting up Nexus365 on an Apple Mac (Version tested: macOS Sierra V 10.12.5) as a fresh install of Office / Outlook 2016 with no pre-existing account details stored in either Keychain or Accounts.  

  • Start Outlook for Mac 2016 using the Outlook 2016 Icon.
  • You will see the “Set Up Your Email” splash screen.
  • Enter your Single Sign On (SSO) username plus @OX.AC.UK (note the capitalisation) in the format abcd1234@OX.AC.UK
  • You may get the "Choose Provider" option, if so, select "Office 365"
  • You will (briefly) see a splash screen connecting to Office 365. 
  • After a few seconds the University Webauth authentication screen will appear. Enter your SSO (lower case, no need for @OX.AC.UK here) and then your password, then click the Login button to continue.
  • If you are not already logged in to the Universitiy's Webauth service then your University of Oxford SSO is confirmed by this screen; click the green Continue to Shibboleth Identity Provider button.
  • Finally you will see the “Success” screen.
  • Click Done to begin using Outlook 2016 with your account.  You can now access Outlook mail with your client.
