Microsoft Outlook is used by millions of people worldwide, so it is only natural for people to want to add multiple accounts. Although the main purpose of Outlook is to send and receive emails, this app also has a task manager, contact manager, and other useful features.
Since Microsoft Outlook is such a versatile app, people want to connect all the email accounts they use. This will allow you to be capable of managing all aspects of your email services from one hub. This method also allows you to save time and quickly browse emails.
We will explore some of the best ways to add and manage multiple accounts to Outlook for these reasons.
How do I add another account to Outlook?
- Open Microsoft Outlook by double-clicking on the icon on the desktop.
- From the top of your screen -> select the ” File ” menu to enter Backstage view.
- Within the Info tab, under Account Information -> click Add Account.
Add multiple accounts in Outlook for the Android app
When Microsoft released an earlier version of the official Outlook app for Android, it was only a modified version of the previous Hotmail app. However, the new version of Outlook has a completely new interface with more consistent added functionality.
The current version has many features, including access to multiple accounts with one app. Here is how to add multiple accounts to the latest Outlook for Android app:
Step 1: First, you have to open the Outlook app on your preferable android device. If you don’t have it yet, you can easily download it from the Google Play Store.
Step 2: Swipe the screen to the right of your inbox. You will see a 3-line hamburger menu.
Step 3: Tap on the round icon that appears at the top. You can also click the Settings icon at the bottom to add a new account.
Step 4: Now, click on the “Add account” option to add your Microsoft account. Follow the steps and fill in the required details to complete the process.

Many users have the task of monitoring bulk email accounts. Incoming messages and replies (incoming/sent mail) should be separated for each account so that other users can decide what was read/sent/etc.
We currently use Outlook profiles, which require users to open/close Outlook for each account. They should do this periodically throughout the day. This is ineffective, so we are looking for a better solution.
I want to advise users to open their primary mailbox first and then open the “shared” mailboxes as secondary mailboxes. Since you’ve already opened these people in shared mailboxes, you shouldn’t have issues with permissions.
If you want these people to be able to “Send As” on shared mailboxes, give them the “Send As” permission (or, more conveniently, create a group, place it in the group, and then give the group the “Send As” permission) on the mailbox recipients.
Using Public Folders to do this is a very nice option, but this feature will disappear in future versions of Exchange, as I am not directing people towards it as much as I used to.
We used to do a lot of this kind of thing, for example, incoming customer service emails. We will have the issues in one public folder, and the customer service representative will pick up the problem email and move it to a public folder “in process” (to inform other customer service reps that someone “ran into the problem”) and then they move it to the “Resolved” folder. Along with the email they sent as a solution (they’ll copy the “Resolved” folder) for the date.
