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 in to your VolMail account:

    • Click on the gear icon in the upper right hand corner, and go to Mail.


    • Under Accounts>Connected Accounts, click +

    • Type your

      Hotmail address and password.

      Click 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 click on Skip to enter the IMAP or POP settings for the account that you are trying to setup.  You will need to login to the hotmail account to get the IMAP or POP settings.

    • Your Hotmail e-mail will now move into your VolMail folders. This may take a few minutes
