What is the Outlook Setup Assistant?

The Outlook Setup Assistant is a lightweight client application that automatically creates an Outlook profile. This tool is for those who moved from Workspace Email to Microsoft 365 and use Outlook for Windows.

If your email uses POP settings, the Outlook Setup Assistant will attach a local copy of your previous PST to your new Outlook profile. This means you'll have a second inbox called Old_POP. For example, if your email is, the inbox will be called This inbox will contain your previous email, but all incoming email will go to your new primary inbox.
