Browser Access For Shared Email or Group Email

Issue:

How can I access/view my shared Outlook Email remotely?

Can I view my shared email at home?

How do I access a shared email account in an Internet browser?

Environment:

Shared mailboxes

Outlook Web App

Resolution:

If you do not have an @cofc.edu employee email account (such as those who are student workers), you must use the shared email account's direct link. You can access that by going to https://outlook.office365.com/owa/mailboxname@cofc.edu where you replace "mailboxname" with the name of the mailbox you wish to log into. When prompted to authenticate, use your own email address and password to sign in.

If you do have an @cofc.edu employee email account, you can log in via the direct link listed above, or by following the steps below:

1. Go to outlook.office365.com.

2. Enter your CofC email (example@cofc.edu) and then click Next.

3. Type in your CofC password.

4. Once in Outlook, in the top right corner there will be a circle with either a photo of yourself, or potentially your initials. Click this circle, then choose Open Another Mailbox. A box will open where you will type the name for the mailbox you want to view.

5. Type in the name of the mailbox you wish to view and choose Open.

6. The mailbox will load and open.
