Microsoft Outlook 2013^

It looks different from previous versions, so we created this guide to help you minimize the learning curve

    First thing first: Add your account^

    Before you can send or receive messages, you have to connect your email account. If your company uses Microsoft Exchange, Outlook 2013 will attempt to set up your email account for you. If you use Internet-based email (such as Hotmail, Gmail, or Yahoo!), enter your name, email address, and password to set up your account.

      Change the Office Theme^

      We've redesigned Office 2013 to provide a clean, uncluttered experience - like a blank piece of paper. If you want to see the different areas of Outlook more distinctly, you can change the Office Theme. Use your File > Office Account settings to change the Office 2013 color scheme for all of your computers, or use the Outlook Options to change the color scheme on just this computer. You can choose from White, Light Gray, or Dark Gray.

        Things you might be looking for^

            Create an email signature^

            2. In the E-mail Signature tab, click New, and then type a name for the signature.

            Automatically add a signature to messages^

            To automatically add a signature to new email messages, do the following:

            1. From any view, click File > Options > Mail. Under Compose messages, click Signatures.

            2. Under Choose default signature, choose the signature to add to New Messages. If you want, choose a different signature for Replies/forwards.

            3. To manually add a signature to a new message, from a new message, on the Message tab, in the Include group, click Signature, and then click the signature that you want.
