Access via web browser

Outlook has its own web service that we can access directly from our favorite browser and check our mail without using any application. This option is especially useful if we need to access the mail from a computer that is not the one we use regularly, which allows us to access the account without using any application.

To get started, simply open a web browser and visit the Outlook login page, where you’ll click the Login button.

Next, we enter our Email address. Then click on Next.
