If you use Outlook to manage your emails and calendar events, it’s important to know how to reset your Outlook account on your iPhone. Resetting your account can help if you are having trouble syncing data between Outlook and your device or if you have recently changed any settings in Outlook. In this blog post, we will explain the steps to reset your Outlook account on an iPhone.

First, open the Settings app on your iPhone. Scroll down the list of options and tap “Mail, Contacts, Calendars”. Under Accounts, locate the Outlook account you want to reset and tap it. On the screen that appears next, tap “Delete Account” at the bottom of the page. This will remove all data associated with that account from your device.

Next, open the Outlook app on your iPhone and log into your account using your credentials. Once logged in, go to Settings > Accounts & Passwords > Add Account > Exchange. Enter the same email address that was associated with the deleted account along with a password if required by Exchange server settings (this depends upon how it is set up). Tap Next when done and wait for a few moments for the verification process to complete.

Now that you have reset your Outlook account on your iPhone, it is time to adjust any preferences or settings that were previously enabled for this particular email address in order for them to be applied correctly once again. Go back into Settings > Mail > Accounts > select Microsoft Exchange from the list of accounts available (or whatever other service you use) then select Select Mailbox Sync Settings at the bottom of this screen and make any necessary adjustments in order to sync data between devices correctly. Ensure that all fields are filled out correctly before proceeding further as incorrect information could cause sync issues again in the future.

Once these changes have been made, be sure to test out both sending and receiving emails via this new setup before relying upon its performance over time – this will help ensure that everything is configured correctly before relying upon it for day-to-day tasks like managing calendar events or sending messages back and forth with contacts.

Taking a few moments now can save much more time later if something does go wrong! That’s why it’s important to understand how to reset an Outlook account on an iPhone so that you are able to quickly troubleshoot any problems should they arise in the future.
