HYMS email via the Outlook app on a PC
Step 1: install the Outlook app via HYMS online account if required
You can install the app by firstly logging into your HYMS Microsoft 365 account via a web browser and choosing to download Microsoft 365 software. Please see further guidance at the following help page; installing Microsoft 365 software on a PC, Laptop or Mac. *As stated above, not all HYMS account types allow download of Microsoft 365 software (notably Honorary and Other Contributor). You may add your HYMS email as an additional account to an Outlook app that you already have access to – please see the steps below.
- Start Office / Outlook on your device and click on connect.
- Enter your HYMS username in the format firstname.lastname@example.org and HYMS password if required. It may automatically log you in with HYMS credentials if you have downloaded software via your online HYMS account / logged into a device with HYMS credentials. If you are not accessing the Outlook app via an install / log in with HYMS credentials, you can at this step simply choose to ‘add an additional account’ and then enter your HYMS credentials. You may need to go to your Outlook mail homepage / file / add account.
- Click on ‘done’ when finished.
- You should now be able to access your HYMS mailbox. Please note that it may take a short while to populate folders and calendars.
