These steps will assist with creating a RealTracs account within Outlook 2013 or 2016. If an existing RealTracs account is already setup within Outlook, that account MUST be removed prior to inputting the new settings for the new account. If there is NOT an existing RealTracs account setup within Outlook, please proceed to the "Setting up your mailbox" section of this document.  



Deleting an existing account:


NOTE: If your old RealTracs account was setup as a POP3 account, do not delete the account from Outlook. Doing so may result in loss of old emails on your account. In this case, we recommend contacting our support team for assistance setting up the account.


If you have other accounts besides your RealTracs setup within Outlook follow these settings:

  1. While within Outlook, click on File at the top-left corner of the window, choose Account Settings, and select Account Settings.
  2. From the list of email accounts that display, select the RealTracs account and click the Remove option (shown below).
  3. Outlook will prompt you if you would like to continue with the account removal, click Yes.



You should no longer see the RealTracs account within the list of accounts. Now that the account is removed, you may begin setting up the new account settings. Clicking New will start you off at step 4 within the instructions found within the "Setting up your mailbox" section below.
