Accessing Outlook on the Web (Office 365 webmail)

As part of the college’s migration onto Microsoft’s Office 365 platform, all email accounts will be moved to the cloud based “Outlook on the Web” experience. 

This move to Outlook on the Web will update the look and feel of the webmail interface, but all of the current functionality will remain. That being said, there will be a few notable changes and differences to be aware of:

  • The “Webmail” link in MVConnect will continue to provide access to your email, but the login process will be slightly different (see the bottom of this email for detailed directions)
  • The “Unread Messages” and “My Week” sections on MVConnect’s home page will no longer display your email or calendar information
  • Outlook on the Web can be accessed directly using this link:  http://outlook.com/owa/morainevalley.edu  (see step #4 below for login instructions)
  • If you are accessing your email on a mobile device, the server settings will need be changed in order to access the Outlook on the Web mailbox. 

The Outlook on the Web training site provides training videos and documentation on the following topics:

  • Overview of Outlook on the Web
  • Creating and Replying to email
  • Organizing your inbox
  • Creating a signature and automatic replies
  • Scheduling appointments and meetings
  • Creating and editing contacts
  • Searching for email, contacts, and events

For assistance with setting up an email app on a mobile device, see this knowledge base article on configuring mobile email apps.
