How to find out the domain and server settings that my Outlook is using?


Senior Member
Outlook version
Outlook 2016 32 bit
Email Account
Office 365 Exchange
On Android I am trying to add an account on Exchange basis, for this I am required to enter server, domain and user name (apart from email/password and description).
Am using Office 365 and Outlook on exchange basis on my desktop PC.

Setting up an account on desktop is easy, if I remember well: just email and password.
Usually domain and server things are not required to be entered.

Q: Is there a way to figure out what domain/server is used by my Outlook on desktop?

What I found on Internet is only to 'contact your administrator'.

Server: ??
Domain: same?
Username: ?

Is this an account?
Which android OS do you have? The software should use auto account setup and find the right settings.
But try for the server.
Can you leave the domain name blank or is it required?
Username is your email address.
Thanks for your reply.

My smartphone is using Android v12 (Samsung Galaxy S10)

It is a little bit complex and what I am trying to accomplish is, more or less, a test...
It is like this:
1. my smartphone has a calendar app
2. I record events in Outlook (desktop) - that is the 'base' so to say, any changes are only in Outlook (desktop)
3. I want those to be synchronized with the smartphone calendar app
4. using an Outlook add on - I sync events with my Gmail calendar as well.

When setting the smartphone calendar app to use my Outlook account, events earlier than 1st of July 2023 won't show up. It is all empty.
When setting the calendar app to use my Gmail account, all events are there, even upto 01-01-1970 (being the Android limitation, as it is using the Unix Epoch system)

In the smartphone calendar app, I can add a new account. When selecting Outlook, it says that it is already in use, but allows me to use a different service.
Office 365, Exchange, or other types like
Yahoo, iCloud, Google, or 'Advanced' being
IMAP and POP3.

Not being entirely sure about what to use I selected Exchange, but then I need to add those details manually.
It doesn't work 'automatically', like Outlook from Office 365 desktop.

Again, this is just a test, to see if it will work when using Exchange.

OTOH I found an article about smartphone calendar synchronzing using Microsoft Exchange (hotmail, Microsoft 365, Office 365,, and it looks that is not always working properly(?). Source: support site aCalendar app.

Outlook/Office 365 details:

All that said, it is a little funny to see that all details are available on Internt when setting up IMAP: what to add where, even ports and SSL, whatever, but as for exchange...(?) I have not even found a way to figure this out myself.

Sorry for the long reply.
