Outlook 2016 Account Creation

Can’t stand the new simplified Outlook account creation? Want to add two accounts with the same email address to outlook (maybe if you’re switching IMAP servers)?

Microsoft, are you listening? Unbelievable that you removed this.

In regedit:


Add a dword:00000001 (1) titled “DisableOffice365SimplifiedAccountCreation”

Restart outlook, and you can go back to the old account configuration system.

Credit goes to on the (gasp) Microsoft community forum. Amazing work.
