- Account with privileges – usually a Domain Administrator, but it can be another user, in which case you must assign permissions as specified here
- The privileged account you specify will be used to autodiscover the connection settings and test access to the mailbox specified above.
Click next and verify that the correct details have been populated in the next dialogue box:
