To configure the bridge with Outlook 2016, first open the application and navigate to the Tools tab, then click the Accounts button in the upper left.
Click the Plus icon in the bottom left and choose New Account....
Enter your email address.
Enter all of the details from the bridge that you got earlier. Note: The password you must use is automatically generated from the bridge. Do not use your Login or Mailbox password.
The password generated by the Bridge app can be found by by clicking on Mailbox configuration under your account username.
When everything is added, click Add Account
Outlook requires configuring your draft settings manually. Click the Tools menu (top of the screen) and select Accounts.
Click your account and then the Advanced button at the bottom.
Click More Options.... Select Use Incoming Server Info from the Authentication dropdown.
Click the Folders tab at the top of the screen and locate the Drafts section. Make sure that drafts are kept "On My Computer" as seen in the screenshot.
Note: Drafts are saved on your local device only. If you create a draft in Outlook on your laptop it will only be saved and accessible on that device. Your newly added account will fetch your emails within 5 minutes. You can send emails without any delay. You can now proceed with configuring your Account settings on the next slide.
If you would like to disable your client spam filters and rely soley on your ProtonMail spam filters make sure the Safe Senders and Blocked Senders lists are empty.
However, keeping your client’s spam filters enabled will offer the advantage of additional spam filtering that is able to utilize the text of all of your messages and will add detected spam senders to your ProtonMail blacklist.
Note: In separate addresses mode every IMAP account that you set up with the Bridge is address-specific, and will only be able to send/receive emails from the address it is set up with. You can add any number of addresses to Outlook but wait for one address to download before adding another.
Note: In combined address mode Outlook has no way to add the other addresses to send with.
