Configuring Your Account to the Desktop Outlook App

Step 1: Install Outlook

The desktop Outlook app is available for students, faculty, and staff as part of the Office365 package which can be downloaded by logging in to http://portal.office.com/ using your SU email address and password. Once logged in, click on the "Install Office" button in the top-right corner. This a large file, so it may take some time to download and install. 

Note for faculty/staff: If you are using an SU-provided computer, Outlook is already installed in most cases. If it is not installed, contact your academic or administrative IT support.
