How to setup outlook on your PC(2013-2016)
Step #1: Add or Edit the Email Account
To set up a new email account or edit the settings on an existing one, click the Tools menu and then select Accounts to open the Accounts panel.
The setup process is slightly different depending on whether you have any existing email accounts configured in Outlook 2016:

Setting up your first email account: If this is your first time setting up Outlook 2016, you will need to click on the envelope icon next to the third option: Other Email (iCloud, Google, Yahoo!, or other accounts)

Setting up an additional email account: Once any email account has been set up in Outlook 2016, additional accounts can be added by clicking the plus sign in the lower left corner and selecting Other Email… from the pull-down menu

Changing the settings for an existing email account: Click on the account’s name in the account list on the left to make changes to any existing account in Outlook 2016, and skip ahead to Step #4: Editing an Existing Email Account.

Step #2: Configuring a New Email Account
On the account information panel, enter the information as follows:

E-mail address: requires your complete email address,
Password: is the password associated with the email account.
User Name: is your full email address.
Type: you may select IMAP or POP. IMAP is recommended for its ability to sync messages between multiple devices
Incoming server: mail.kingsley.co.za (web.kingsley.co.za if you have your own domain)
Check the box next to Use SSL to connect (recommended)
Ports are as follows:995 with SSL
Outgoing server: mail.kingsley.co.za (web.kingsley.co.za if you have your own domain)
Ports are as follows:465 with SSL (587 can also be used)
Check the box next to Use SSL to connect (recommended)
Once you’ve entered all the requested information, click the Add Account button at the bottom of the window to create the account with your specified settings.

Step #3: Configure Security Settings
When you add your email account, an alert window may prompt you to review security settings. This is expected if you have not already purchased and installed a signed, third-party verified SSL certificate on your mail server. If you see no such prompt, then you’re all set and can begin using Outlook 2016 with your email account immediately.

If you do get a security prompt, which specifies that information that you view and send will be encrypted.

If you wish to proceed with the connection, you have two options:

You can click the Continue button to proceed, you may need to accept the warning each time Outlook connects.
Or, you can permanently store the certificate and treat it as trusted, by clicking Show Certificate and then checking the box next to Always trust … before clicking Continue. You will need to authenticate with your password to store the exception for your self-signed certificate.

Step #4: Editing an Existing Email Account
To change the settings on an existing email account, click the Tools menu and then select Accounts to open the Accounts panel.
Click on the name of the account in the left pane, and make the desired changes:

Refer to Step #2 to confirm settings

Check the box next to Use SSL to connect (recommended) for a secure connection.
Incomming server: mail.kingsley.co.za (web.kingsley.co.za if you have your own domain)
Outgoing server: mail.kingsley.co.za (web.kingsley.co.za if you have your own domain)

The More Options… button will allow you to configure authentication for the outgoing (SMTP) mail server Authentication:
Typically, Use Incoming Server Info is sufficient, but if you receive connection errors due to SMTP authentication, you may need to select User Name and Password. Do not select None; you will not be able to send mail if None is selected as the authentication type.

User Name: This field can only be filled in if you use the User Name and Password authentication type. If enabled, it must be the full email address.
