Microsoft Outlook (Email): Updating Apple Mail and Apple Calendar for the USNH unified M365 environment on a Mac

Summary:

These instructions are provided to help assist users with updating desktop based Apple Mail and Calendar Applications for the USNH Unified M365 environment.  There are two parts, 1) removing the old campus based account, and 2) adding the account for the Unified environment.

2.  Go to Mail -> Preferences in the upper left menu next to the Apple icon:

(example:  abc9876, not your email address)

 

9. You will be passed back to the Apple Mail Application and asked to "Select" the other apple applications you want to use with this account.  This is where you would select the Apple Calendar app and any other features to sync with the M365 environment.  Once you have made your selections, click the "Done" button

 

10. Your Apple mail and Calendar (and any other apps you chose above) will now be synced with the Unified M365 environment.   Depending upon how much data and email you have in the cloud, it may take a few minutes or even a couple hours for the email and calendar entries to fully sync from the Cloud based environment.
