Tour Office 365 Features


With Office 365, you will now have two separate accounts:

1. Office 365 account.

Email. You will continue to use Microsoft Outlook Web App or Microsoft Outlook to view and send email from your school account, but you will sign in at http://webmail.my.anokaramsey.edu or http://mail.office365.com using the same user name and password.


File sharing.  Office 365 uses Microsoft SharePoint Online for sharing files and Microsoft Office Web Apps for creating and reading documents.


Instant messaging and online meetings. Office 365 uses Microsoft Lync Online for both instant messaging and online meetings.


2. Personal Microsoft account.

This personal account will give you access to all existing SkyDrive content, Messenger, and other Microsoft services. You will use the same user name and password that was used to access Live@edu. Note that Anoka-Ramsey Community College no longer administers this account. As a result, we cannot reset the password for you. Use https://account.live.com/ResetPassword.aspx to reset the password for your personal account after the upgrade.
