Mac Mail on Sierra (OS Sierra) can be configured to connect to Exchange. These instructions are for setting up Mac Mail for the first time. If you need to add an additional account, you can do so from the System Preferences pane “Internet Accounts.”

Note: Shared Mailboxes cannot be added to Mac Mail in this manner. If you need to manage a Shared Mailbox on a Mac, it is recommended that you use Outlook on the Web.
