Arts & Sciences Computing recommends and supports Thunderbird (http://www.mozilla.com/thunderbird/) or webmail (http://artsci.wustl.edu/webmail). While these directions should set up a basic configuration in Microsoft Outlook 2010, further support may not be available.
Before continuing you will need a valid artsci account (username and password) and your @wustl email address.
Open Outlook. If this is the first time you are setting up Outlook for your computer the outlook wizard should automatically pop up.

Choosing POP is not recommended.
