Configuration of Outlook 2013/2016

Outlook 2013 and Outlook 2016 are very similar and differ only in small parts. Therefore you can use these instructions on both clients.

The configuration below is divided into three sections, because the steps differ a little bit if you start from scratch or if you already used outlook before.
