New to Outlook? Use this guide to learn the basics.
Outlook Account Set up:
You can use Outlook as soon as you enter your account info. On the ribbon, select File > Info and then select the Add Account button. Next, sign in with your preferred email address or use an account provided by your company or school.
Set up an Outlook Group:
If you’re running Outlook as part of an eligible Office 365 subscription, you can use Groups instead of distribution lists to more effectively communicate and collaborate with members of a team or an organization.
To create a new group in Outlook, on the ribbon, select Home and then select New Items > Group.
If you don’t see this as an option on this menu, contact the administrator of your Microsoft 365 subscription for more information.
From the inbox of any of your Groups, you and the other members can start or join a conversation, create or confirm team events, see a list of members and get notifications about interactions on any of your shared posts.
To join an existing group, start by searching for its name. On the ribbon, select Home, enter a keyword or phrase into the Search People box, and then select the group you want to join.
Attach your Files without searching:
Need to attach a picture or a document? Outlook saves you time by keeping a list of your recently used files. Select the Attach file button while composing a new message or meeting invitation and then select the file you want to attach.
Outlook is more than just email:
Easily switch between Mail, Calendar, People and more.
