This article describes how to set up your Microsoft® Exchange® 2013 email account with Mac® Mail.

Note: Exchange 2013 is supported only on OS X El Capitan version 10.11 or later Macintosh® operating system versions. To verify which operating system your Mac is running, select the Apple® icon located in the top left-hand corner and then select About This Mac.

  1. Open Mac Mail, select Mail, and then select Add Account.

  2. You are prompted to select a mail account provider. Select Exchange, and then click Continue.

  3. On the next screen, enter your full name, email address, and click Sign In.

  4. When you are presented with the options to Configure Manually or Sign In, click Configure Manually.

    Note: We recommend that you configure your account automatically by using Autodiscover. If you set up your account by using Autodiscover, click Sign In instead of Configure Manually.

  6. Select the services that you want to sync, such as mail, contacts, and calendar, and then click Done.

After completing the steps in this article, Mail begins syncing to your Mac Mail client.
