Add an email account to Outlook

With Outlook on your PC, Mac or mobile device, you can:

  • Organize email to let you focus on the messages that matter most.

  • Manage your calendar to schedule meetings and appointments with ease.

  • Share files from the cloud so recipients always have the latest version.

  • Stay connected and productive wherever you are.
