How to Use:

How Outlook and Outlook.com work together

Outlook.com is a free email service that looks and feels like Outlook. You can also add your Outlook.com account to Outlook to manage all your email, calendars, and contacts. (Applies to: Outlook 2013)

How to use Outlook and Outlook.com together

Outlook.com is free, web-based email from Microsoft. If you have an Outlook.com account (even if it ends with @hotmail.com, @live.com, or @msn.com), you can read and send email by signing in to Outlook.com.

Outlook is the Office email app on your computer. Outlook works with Office 365, as well as with any major email provider, including Gmail and Outlook.com. You can use Outlook to send and receive Outlook.com email as well as see your calendar and contacts. In Outlook, you can:

  • Open emails you’ve already received even when you aren’t connected to the internet.
  • See multiple accounts in one place—not just email, but calendars and contacts, too.
  • Work with other Office apps—for example, send email messages to your OneNote notebook.

You don’t have to choose one or the other. You can use both—use the Outlook.com website when you can’t get to your own computer, and use Outlook when you can.

The steps for adding your Outlook.com account depend on which version of Outlook you have. Here’s how to add Outlook.com to Outlook 2013. (If you’re using an earlier version of Outlook, see these steps for Outlook 2010 or these steps for Outlook 2007 and Outlook 2003.)
