Outlook on the Web is the online version of Outlook that just needs a browser to access it. There’s nothing to configure and no server settings to remember.
Browse to https://outlook.com/nbi.ac.uk and login using your “UPN” (in the format firstname.lastname@example.org) and normal NBI password.
You have full access to your e-mails, calendar, contacts and tasks. Any other NBI mailboxes to which you have access can be viewed as well. There are also links to Skype for Business and your OneDrive for Business storage.
You’ll get the best experience by using the Outlook for iOS/Android app to access your e-mails. Outlook also gives you access your calendar and OneDrive for Business, and any personal accountsd can also be added in. This is available for free in the Apple Store and Google Play stores.
