There are two different ways to login to Outlook on the web, from the Office 365 app launcher or directly via the URL. In this video, learn how to sign in to Outlook on the web.
- [Instructor] There're a couple of different ways that you can sign into your Outlook on the web account. And it really depends on whether you use only Outlook on the web, or whether you use it as part of a Office 365 subscription. Let's say you use Outlook on the web because you have an outlook.com account for example, and you'd like to log in. Well then what you need to know is you need to know what the address, the URL, for your email server is. If it's a organizational account it might start with https and then have mail.your company name and then .domain. Or it could be something like outlook.office.com. Which is actually my Outlook email account. If I'm logged in it will find me. And that works. Here I am. The first time you log in though, it may ask you to provide some additional information. I'm going to open an inPrivate window so we can see what that looks like. So if I go to outlook.office.com and I'm not logged in, or in this case it can't tell that I'm logged in because I'm browsing inPrivate. Then I'll be prompted to sign in. And it will ask you for your email or your phone. And you'll click Next. And then you will enter your password, and you'll sign in. I'm being asked if I want to stay signed in and if I'm working on my own computer or a computer where I've had to log in so that other people can't get into my account. Then I could say Yes if I chose to. And then I won't be asked to sign in as frequently. Now I'm logging in this way because this is the account I have. Just an Outlook on the web account. However, if I have Microsoft Office account. Then I can go to Office 365 and I can get to Outlook by simply clicking right here, Outlook. And if I'm in one of the Office 365 applications that runs in a browser. Not just Outlook, but for example, SharePoint or Dynamics. I can click the app launcher, and go to Outlook in exactly the same way. So if I'm not already in Office 365, then I need a URL, at least the first time. If I'm already somewhere Microsoft 365, then I can simply go to the app launcher. From Office or from any other browser-based app and go directly to Outlook. And regardless of which way you log in, you can always add this page to your Favorites or whatever bookmarks are used in the browser that you're using. So that you can quickly and easily get here in the future.
