Configure Outlook 2010 / 2013 / 2016 to connect automatically to Exchange without prompting user input

There is one configuration which really can easy your job when setting up Outlook and you should always take advantage of it. And this option is "Automatically configure profile based on Active Directory Primary SMTP address".

If you enable it when first time starting Outlook, user will not be required to click several Next buttons, Outlook will configure itself automatically, if user has an email attribute populated in Active Directory.


  • If you use Office Customization Tool, then open OCT, go Modify User Settings, Microsoft Outlook 20xx / Account Settings / Exchange
  • If you use group policies, then first import ADMX templates for appropriate Office version and go to User configuration / Policies / Administrative templates / Microsoft Outlook 20xx / Account Settings / Exchange
