Hi,

Hope someone can help.

I no longer use my installed version of Outlook on my PC and I want to use Outlook online through my Microsoft account. Thing is, I have tried sending emails to myself from my online account (just to see if the emails work) but i never receive them. When I compose an email through Outlook online, the 'from field' is already completed with my email address so I would assume that this email address is the one where emails are sent from.

Sorry if this sounds confusing, I'm totally confused by it all! How would I see what email address my Microsoft account is using to send emails from?

Not sure where to start with all this - old/confused :)

Many thanks.

When you use a browser (such as Internet Explorer, or Firefox, or Google Chrome, etc.), to go to "http://www.Outlook.com" on the internet and send an email, your email address would probably end with "@outlook.com".

When you send an email from the Outlook program on your computer, more than likely it will be from some other email address.
