Manage multiple mailboxes with Outlook
Chances are you have more than one email account ó a school account, and one or more personal accounts. Do you login to multiple sites to check your messages? With Outlook 2010, you can view all your accounts all in one place.
To get started, click the File
tab which opens the new Backstage view. Click Add Account
and then follow the step-by-step instructions for adding your email account to Outlook. For most accounts, all you need to know is your email address and password.
Iíve added my Windows Live Hotmail account to Outlook in addition to my corporate Microsoft mailbox. Now I can easily view messages and contacts from both accounts in Outlook. I love the convenience. If you use multiple accounts with Outlook, leave a comment below and tell us about your experience. You can find more set up instructions, on Office.com
