Before you start

  • Do you have a PredictMail account?

    If you do not have a PredictMail account, please set one up first in the Satellite Portal.

  • Have you set up PredictMail on the DataHub?

    Please set up PredictMail on the DataHub before you set up PredictMail in Outlook for Mac. This will ensure that after you reconnect your Mac to DataHub Wi-Fi, it will not report an error when it attempts to check PredictMail.

  • Connect to the Internet via your device's cellular data, home or another high-speed Wi-Fi, or a hot spot from another device. Disconnect from and do not use DataHub Wi-Fi during the PredictMail setup.

  • This guide has been written for Outlook for Mac version 16.74.1 on Mac OS 13.4.1 (Ventura) using New Outlook mode. The steps, screens, and options may differ if you use an older version of Outlook or Mac OS.

Add a PredictMail account to Outlook for Mac

  • Open Outlook on your Mac.

  • Click on the Outlook menu, then select Settings.
