Connecting ReallyMe to Outlook for Windows

Note:  These instructions are based on the latest version of Outlook for Windows at time of writing (v.2022 of Outlook with Office 365 running on Windows 11).

This process is in 2 steps, first we’ll connect your new ReallyMe.Me email as a new IMAP service, then we’ll separately add your calendar to Outlook (note: As Outlook does not support the CalDav format, we’ll need to add a free plugin to synchronize your calendar with Outlook.  This is a quick and painless process detailed below).

Step 1 – Connect your ReallyMe Mail Account

  1. Open Outlook
  2. Under the ‘File’ Tab select the ‘+ Add Account’ button. Outlook may search for accounts to recommend, wait for it to finish.
  3. Enter your new ReallyMe.Me email address.

  2. In the Encryption Method drop-down box select “SSL/TLS”
  3. Check both boxes next to ‘Require logon using Secure Password Authentication (SPA)’.

Your finished screen should look like this.

  1. Press Next.

Outlook will connect to your Mailbox and return any issues (the most frequent issue is your password was mistyped).
