Recently, I got my office365 account and found it surprisingly difficult to configure it with mac OSX Mail app. There were numerous inane outdated tutorials and documentation. Finally it came down to a simple configuration which worked on

OSX Yosemite and higher.


  1. Open mail
  2. From the top menu, select add account
  3. Click on Exchange and add an Alias (name with which you want to refer the account), email and password of your office365 account
  4. Mail will try to access your account but will fail and show you a new form
  5. Add the url:
  6. Voila! Mail will be able to connect seamlessly

Hope this helps someone!
