You can connect your email account to Outlook on the web through the Office 365. It is possible to connect up to 5 other email accounts such as Gmail, hotmail.com/Outlook.com, Yahoo! Mail. If you connect accounts to Outlook, you will be able to send and receive emails from the single location. However, you should keep your email accounts separate so that you will manage them very easily. As you try to access www.outlook.com, you will be routed to login.live.com. After completing the Hotmail login, successfully, you should add your other email accounts to outlook.com.
With outlook.com, you will send and receive emails from a single platform. It is not required to log into three or more separate email accounts. As you connect up to 5 email accounts, they can be viewed from Outlook.com Inbox. You will find folders in the folder pane. Each folder belongs to an email account. If you would like to switch over from one email account to another email account, you can click on the required folder. Thus, you will visit the email account without leaving Outlook.com.
Some customers enjoy the new Outlook Mail experience. If you would like to add new email account from the outlook.com, the corresponding instructions should be followed. If you are adding from the classic hotmail.com, you will want to follow a different set of instructions.
