Windows 10: Configure Win 10 Mail account from scratch

    I eventually found the link I needed (the slimmed-down vertical scroll bar Windows has added slipped my attention). However, I have tried every possible combination of registering and none of them work. When I am asked for my "account name" and "password," is this for my Microsoft account or for my account with the University? I really cannot figure this out and would appreciate any help. I could not find a step-by-step manual on Microsoft's site for using Mail for a non-Microsoft server.

    Try and find out more details of your University Account, likely to be Exchange, Other Account or Advanced setup. Could be one of the others as they can provide Email services to organisations etc.
    It's the University Account details you enter not MS.

    It can think about it for some time, and also you may have to try more than once. This is the case for one of my Mail Accounts which is quite old and not a common Email provider.
