Although the Outlook desktop client allows you to run rules against a mailbox (including inbox), not all features work the same in Outlook for Web Access (OWA). Rules is one of them. As you can see from the screenshot below, the wording says, "When the messages arrives, and". This means your rules only apply to new messages. Existing messages, like those in ...

The solution is to log into Office 365 via https://portal.office.com, click on Calendar and then click on Calendar again under "My app settings". Go to publish calendar and publish the desired calendar. Copy the ICS url created. Log into Google Calendar and click the arrow on "Other calendars". Click the button "Add by URL" and paste the .ics link from ...

The best option I've found is to use Microsoft Flow with the Copy new events in Office 365 to Google Calendar and send a notification template. Events doesn't show up immediately, but it takes around 5 minutes. Pretty good. It also handles event updates.

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....

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 ...

In case others find this, I think I just found a solution (from this blog post) that lets you force the browser back to showing the Light version of OWA with 40-some messages listed at one line per, instead of the ridiculous modern tile version where you see 4. Directly after the /owa/ part of the URL you are using, paste in ?exsvurl=1&layout=light&...

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 ...

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.

I have noticed the same behavior and agree that this feature of Outlook can be annoying. Try using the Reply-to-All button and that will include all of the original recipients. You'll want to double check and see if your own address is included as well. I just tested in Outlook 2010 and everything worked as hoped for. I sort of recall an older version ...

It just occured to me that I can open a private browsing session and login again. That gives me two independent browsers so I can keep different parts of the web app open in each. It's not ideal, though, since I have to login again and since I would prefer to have two tabs in a single browser window.

Even though this feature is unavailable I found a way to not get bogged down too much doing it manually. Perform a search against Inbox that will return all the same emails your rule would catch. Select the first one. This is the worst part. Scroll three screen lengths down at a time. Each time, shift-click the checkbox of one of the search results on ...

I was looking for the same functionality, I created a rule and I want to run it to delete around 70,000 messages. I found really useful the functionality ORGANIZE (Organizza in the screenshot) that run my rule deleting all messages I don't. I hope it helps

In diving through the settings again looking for "keyboard shortcuts" options mentioned by w3dk, I found in "options > settings > message format" the option "Compose message in this format: HTML / Plain text" which was set to what seemed to be the default, "HTML". Changing it to "Plain text" removes many text formatting features including indent & un-...

This is answered with respect to Outlook.com, not Outlook Web Access - sorry, my mistake! This would seem to be a conflict on Mac OS X only. On Windows, Ctrl+Left Arrow and Ctrl+Right Arrow are the standard keyboard shortcuts for moving forward/back one word (not Alt). And consequently hold together with Shift to make a selection. These work the same at ...

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 ...

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.

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".

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. Click on a message Hold down the Ctrl key on your keyboard and select another message. You can select as many messages as you'd like while holding down Ctrl. Note: Holding ...

If you directly select the "Mail" item on the "Settings" panel the mail "Options" panel will open on the left side of the browser. On the "Options" side panel dive into "Region and time zone" settings under the "General" group. On this page you'll see an extra checkbox which reads as "Rename default folders so their names match the specified language". I ...

There seem to be native HTML5 desktop notifications working for Outlook web now, but only under Windows. It's not there for Linux, which is really strange given it's the same API. Not sure why they chose not to support it under Linux given that's really the only missing piece for critical feature parity in the browser.

(Using the online Office 365 Outlook) If you have a lot of emails to remove a better way is to create a rule that moves all the emails containing the search term "Goldilocks" into the Deleted Items folder. A safer method would be to create a folder and move them into that, then you can check them before selecting the "Delete All" button.

From the support page which explains the rules of the Inbox for the Outlook Web App: Create Inbox rules in Outlook Web App to automatically perform specific actions on messages as they arrive, based on your criteria. For example, you can create a rule to automatically move all mail sent to a group you're a member of to a specific folder. To manage rules: ...

An alternative is to use a desktop application e.g. "Thunderbird" to aggregate all your accounts into one client then use "message filters" to define rules. Doing it this way you can filter all mail even from separate accounts into a single folder.

You can set filters in Outlook to do what you need. https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Inbox-rules-in-Outlook-Web-App-edea3d17-00c9-434b-b9b7-26ee8d9f5622 will be a good starting point.

This is presumably "Office 365". As far as I known, the "Send Mail As" functionality is the only way to be able to send from Gmail using another address (at least in personal Gmail). In which case, you'll need the SMTP details, as for any external email account. Reference: POP and IMAP settings for Outlook Office 365 for business. However, this sounds ...

A possible - though not elegant - solution is to open each account in a different web browser (e.g. Chrome and Firefox).

Go to view tab in outlook mail. Click on Arrange by, then uncheck Show in Groups.

On your email client (Outlook 2013) your emails are being grouped similarly-titled emails together. To turn off this feature, look on yor VIEW ribbon in the Messages section for a tickbox entitled "Show as conversations" and untick it. In Webmail, this feature is in a completely separate menu. Hit the dropdown arrow next to Arrange and uncheck the box "...
