That's because you are not using IE. What you are seeing is a non-IE (watered down) version of the app. Therefore, first and foremost, you need to access OWA from Internet Explorer, otherwise you will not see the Rules section. Secondly, make sure forwarding is allowed from the Exchange server. Then: Login Click on the Options button at the top right of the ...

Does Hotmail or Outlook.com have a similar feature? Yes, Outlook.com has that feature as of this week. If yes, how does it work? This blog article explains how it works. It works the same as with Gmail. Example Say your email address is myname@outlook.com. You can add something with a plus + sign. So, sending an email to myname+mailinglist_topic_x@...

The session duration in Outlook Web Access might be enforced on the organization policy level, and OWA has no way to tweak it for individual users. If so, one can either convince whoever took this decision, or install a browser extension to automatically refresh the session. For example, mSession Keeper for Firefox can be set up to: ping https://outlook....

After tinkering around for a while, I discovered that the table width is fixed to the size of the parent container, which is normally not selectable for some reason when you create a new table directly on a page. The mouse cursor is not visible in the above screenshot, but I am hovering over the table. By default, hovering over the table does not allow you ...

Here is the Office 365 tenant deletion policy (where "tenant" = your organisation on O365) according to one customer support rep: To cancel a tenant, we need to first cancel all the subscriptions under it.

OneDrive personal and OneDrive for Business are completely different and you can't share folders between these accounts. You can only generate a link, but you will never see your shared folders in your OneDrive personal account or in your OneDrive for Business account. Just use only OneDrive for Business or only OneDrive personal otherwise it is not ...

Brienne is right. Under your last folder (before Groups) click on "More". This will take you to the Folders side window. On top you will see your "Favorites" folders, under that will be your login name and the same list of folders as are shown in "Favorites". Right-click on the folder that you want to rename that is listed under your name. You ...

How to compose a New Message or Event and Populate fields in Office365 There is support available to programmatically invoke OWA mail and calendar event compose form. Because this is based on URL parameters, there are a number of limitations, including the limit on URL length of around 2048 chars which essentially makes it not adequate for ‘reply’ scenarios ...

Buried on a Microsoft support page is this section: Issue: Missing Meetings icon in the left nav bar Symptom: The Meetings icon on the app bar is currently only enabled for users whose mailbox is on Office 365 multi-tenant and a select few dedicated users whose mailbox location can be discovered using Exchange auto discovery. Microsoft Teams does not ...

For Chrome you could use the plugin Staying alive for Google Chrome which makes requests in the background to Outlook Web Mail. You can configure the URL triggers which will start with the background requests. This prevents you from logging out. However like Victor Sergienko is explaining, this could be against your company policies. In my case my ...

The problem is that under Options -> Accessibility -> Low Resolution or Blind settings were on, and the rules options were not being displayed.

It is possible to set up an alias for your email address in the country code top level domain. The option is available somewhere in the mail settings. Here are some steps (note that this is using Outlook online): Log in to your Hotmail/Windows Live account. Click on the gear icon on the top right hand corner and select "More mail settings" In the Options ...

Yes, they can view them. It's no problem for Office documents, which can be opened directly in SkyDrive (now OneDrive), or images you want to see. But you can't send a link to the file and download it. When you need to download them, you need to have a Live ID.

Mark the little checkbox in the upper right-hand corner of the tile that represents the document in your SkyDrive. Click on Manage in the bar on the top, then click on Move to. You'll now be given the option to select the target location for your file. Alternatively, SkyDrive also supports Drag & Drop to achieve move operations:

I think I figured it out (for me, at least)! You may be trying to edit your folders looking at them in "Favourites". Remove them from your "Favourites", click "More" under "Folders", then you will be able to right click and rename or delete the folder you created.

You probably need to select the published calendar for syncing. Go to https://calendar.google.com/calendar/syncselect, and you will see a list of your Google calendars. In the bottom section, your shared (subscribed) calendards are listed. Make sure your Office 365 calendar is listed here, and selected. Now, in your iOS Calendar app, you need to select ...

According to Victor Sergienko: The session duration in Outlook Web Access might be enforced on the organization policy level. I am the administrator. Please tell me where can I configure so OWA never logs off involuntarily on any computer in my organization again.

Here is the full list of the keyboard shortcuts for Outlook.com, and you could change the default shortcuts to the ones from Yahoo! or Gmail from the settings:

Outlook.com allows the creation of email aliases, which is essentially the same as the Gmail and Yahoo features that you mention. Email sent to your aliases will forward to your regular Outlook.com account. Outlook.com does have limits, though: you can only create up to 5 aliases per year, and you can have a maximum of 15 aliases in total. Here is the link ...

From a Microsoft representative: "With the current design of Hotmail, the option you're referring to is not yet available. I will forward the suggestion over to our product team as consideration for a future release." Unfortunately, that was over a year ago. It doesn't look like the feature is coming anytime soon.

I just tested this in Firefox 15.0.1 and Chrome 30.0.1599.101 (both on Mac): Click the share link Click the email option Copy the link at the top of the window that pops up Currently, this link does include the fragment identifier to go to that specific answer.

I think you cannot use Office 365 with Dropbox Pro. I have a suggestion for you: You can download Dropbox desktop sync version and install onto your PC. After installation of Dropbox desktop sync you'll see the folder under "My Computer" on left-hand side. Create folder on it called "office". Then create your Word, Excel, Powerpoint, etc. files and save in ...

When you click the checkbox to select all the emails the email content window displays a menu which includes the buttons of options for the selected emails which has a header counting the number of selected emails. You can find the selection url for all the emails just below this header which reads as "Select everything in your Inbox folder".

This won't help much, but if you reduce the size of the font, it'll display a few more, so a few more will get selected.

I was able to find solutions on the web for your other questions on selecting multiple emails and rule creation but this one seems to be a known problem with Outlook on Web. I've found a few similar questions and feature requests from Microsoft. I've tried to select multiple emails from my own search results. I've did somehow manage to do it but can't ...

A few things to double check: Are you clicking in the list of folders on the left immediately after you sign in? Also, are you sure you're logged in as the same user that originally created those folders? I have no idea if the French site is the same as the one English users are presented with-- I even selected the Junk Mail folder and still had the option ...

It's possible to select multiple emails on Outlook on Web. I myself wasn't aware of the process until I've found similar answers to this one. I've tried this solution and it worked.
