This article provides instruction on how to connect your Outlook 2013 client to our Microsoft Exchange 2010 servers.

Prior to adding a Microsoft Exchange Full Access Connection to Outlook 2013, we recommend installing our Outlook 2013 Autodiscover Patch.  This patch is required for Outlook to properly locate the Autodiscover information for a non-Office 365 Exchange account.  The patch can be found in the following support article:
