Troubleshooting Tips

  • If the connection fails, confirm that you have correctly entered your Chinook email address ( and password, as well as the other settings as noted above.
  • To confirm you are using a valid username and password, use a web browser to access your Chinook mail account through Chinook's Outlook Web App (OWA) site. If you are unable to access your email here, then you likely have a problem with your username, your password, or both. Contact your administrator for help.
  • If your username and password are correct, but you are still unable to connect to your account, follow the steps in the Manually Configure Outlook 2010 article.
