Can I link my Office 365 Volmail and my current Hotmail account?

Print Friendly and PDF

There are two options for looking at both accounts at the same time:

  1. You can open two browser windows and log into each account separately.

  2. You can connect your Hotmail account to come into your Volmail account:

    • Select the gear icon in the upper right corner and choose Mail.


    • Under Accounts > Connected Accounts, choose +

    • Enter your Hotmail address and password.

      Select OK.

    • You will receive a message that states "Unsecured Connection.  A secured connection couldn't be established to this account.  Not all providers offer secure connections.  Click OK to try an unsecured connection.  Click Skip to configure your account settings."; you will need to choose Skip to enter the IMAP or POP settings for the account that you are trying to set up.  You will also need to log into the Hotmail account to get the IMAP or POP settings.

    • Your Hotmail email will now move into your Volmail folders. This may take a few minutes.
