Hotmail 365 - Syncing Outlook and Office Account

Office 365, sometimes known as Exchange Online Protection (EOP), is the email-for-enterprise part of Microsoft. It was originally started off as Frontbridge Technologies, based out of Los Angeles. Microsoft acquired it in 2005 and was renamed a few times, most recently as Forefront Online Protection for Exchange (FOPE). All of the backend infrastructure of FOPE has been retired and EOP is entirely built on a different platform.

Hotmail, as we know, was acquired by Microsoft in the 1990’s and a couple of years ago was rechristened as outlook.com. It ran on a different filtering stack, and email filtering technology, than EOP/FOPE. Over the past several months, two teams, outlook.com and EOP, merged together at last. Now they are working and sharing technologies. As the profile look of both, outlook.com and office 365, is not similar and therefore what works in one may not work in the other.

It’s important to know that Microsoft is not offering only one kind of 365 service, but it has more than one kind of Office 365 service. Each service has its own sign-in page. Now, how I and you come to know that where we should sign in? It depends on which service you're using. Your username can indicate which service you are using.

Hotmail 365

Here you can find information about some aspects , which you should know in this regard. Let’s have a look , what is difference between Office 365 for Home and Office 365 for Business.

Office 365 for Home

Office 365 for Home isn’t Cloud Storage but it is Cloud Based Software Delivery. This subscription based service does a lot like delivers, installs and updates the latest version of the Office Suite via the Internet via a special streaming method also known as “Click-to-Run”. You can also combine it with a mail account which does sync with the cloud such as IMAP (mail only), Outlook.com (mail, calendar, contacts and tasks) or an Exchange account (full mailbox).

Office 365 for Business

Office 365 for Business is exactly opposite to Office 365 for Home. It store your data in the cloud. For Outlook, the component of Office 365 for Business which does this is called Exchange Online. An Exchange account will sync all your mailbox data via the cloud with other computers on which you have Outlook installed. You can also accessed and synched via practically any tablet and smartphone or via a web browser.

Setup Account Using New Outlook.Com Server

  • You need a Microsoft Account. If you don’t have, you can easily create a Microsoft Account for any valid email address. It’s not necessary to a Hotmail, Live, or Outlook.com address. To use your own address is recommended.
  • When the Outlook.com account is hosted on the new Outlook.com servers, it can be added to Outlook as an Exchange account but you'll need to use auto-account setup to set it up.

Set Up The Microsoft Account In Outlook

  • Create a "Microsoft Account" for your email address and use that in Outlook. Now set up the account in Outlook using the Outlook Connector if using Outlook 2003, 2007, or 2010 and EAS if using Outlook 2013. You need to set it up manually, auto account setup is not possible.
  • You need two accounts in Outlook, your real email and the Outlook.com account. Both accounts will have the same email address.
  • Outlook 2003 and 2007 use the default email account for New messages while Outlook 2010 and 2013 will use the account associated with the folders you are looking in. This means if you are viewing the calendar in outlook.com and start a new message, Outlook will use the Outlook.com account to send the message.
  •  Set your email account to be the default on the Email tab.

How to move Outlook Calendar

  • With a valid email address, you log into outlook.com with your Microsoft Account. When you log in with the Microsoft Account, you'll receive a couple of welcome emails. Some people think that as they have received these emails so sync is there but it will not pull your email into the account unless or until you set up Outlook.com to pull in mail from your mailbox.
  • Common misunderstanding in this regard is about configuring the outlook.com. You do not need to configure Outlook.com to pull in your other email accounts to use it for.
  • You have to copy or move existing appointments and contacts to the new Outlook.com data file. If the account was migrated to the new server, you can move the appointments and contacts between folders within Outlook.
  • The Outlook.com Microsoft Account can be set as default data file, by putting the calendar on the To-Do Bar.
  • If you want to remove the calendar and contacts folder from your "real" account uses, Delete Special folders. Don't forget to move the appointments, contacts, and tasks to the Outlook.com folders first.
