Student Email in Microsoft Office 365



You can access email in Microsoft Office 365 by using Microsoft Outlook Web App, a web-based version of Microsoft Outlook. Outlook Web App gives you access to your Microsoft Exchange mailbox from any computer connected to the web. You can also keep track of email from other accounts, such as Hotmail or Gmail, by connecting those accounts to your Outlook Web App account.
In addition to being able to access your email through Outlook Web App, you can connect your Office 365 email account to a desktop email program such as Outlook or Microsoft Entourage 2008 for Mac, Web Services Edition. For more information, see Connect Office 365 to your Outlook desktop application.
