How to Create Outlook Profile in Office 365

Hi everyone this is Prem, I have worked as Microsoft 365 Support Ambassador. In this blog I will share how to Create Outlook Profile in Office 365 using a Windows computer.


We can create a new profile from the control panel on a windows computer. For mac user these steps will not work.


To create a profile from the Control panel follow the steps below:

Search for control panel on your computer:

Click on Category > large icons:

Now click on Mail:

Click on Show profiles:

Then click on Add to add a new outlook profile:

Give the new profile a name and hit OK:

On this prompt, enter you Name, Email address and Password of the account you want to add in Outlook:

If you are prompted to add the email address and password again, add them respectively.


If everything went well you should see the following window, click on Finish or Add another account if you want to add any other account in the same outlook profile:

You can then select the new profile to open when outlook is launched by making the changes shown below:

Select Always use this profile dropdown and select the new profile which is created > Apply>OK.


Now after all the above step, if you launch the outlook, it will open with the new profile and start to download all the emails of the account which you have added on the computer.


In this way we can create a new outlook profile on a windows computer.


You can follow the same to add different accounts, even account of different email provider which are not of Office 365 and it should work.
