Setting Up UOmail: Outlook on the web


Learn how to use Outlook on the web to access your UOmail.


Logging In

Outlook on the web should be accessible through any web browser, anywhere you have Internet access, however, we do recommend Chrome for the best functionality.

  1. Navigate to
  2. Enter your full UO email address.
    Outlook sign in, enter email address.
  3. If prompted, on the next screen, select Work or School Account.
    Select Work or School Account Outlook page
  4. Enter your Duck ID password.
  5. Click Sign In. You will then be prompted with Duo.
    Enter your password then press Sign In.
Please Note: If you forgot your Duck ID password or it is being flagged as incorrect, please visit the Duck ID Account Management portal and select the Manage Your Duck ID link to reset your password. The "Forgot my password" option provided by Microsoft will not allow you to do so.

Differences between Outlook on the web and the Outlook mail application.

The Outlook mail application is the most full-featured way to view your email and calendar but must be installed on each device you want to use to access your email. Outlook on the web has fewer features but requires no application to be installed and can be accessed from any device through a web browser.

Is Outlook on the web the right tool for you?

Outlook on the web may be suitable if you:

  • Manage your own mail and calendar.
  • Schedule appointments for yourself or occasional meetings with others.
  • Need access to your account on the go.

The Outlook mail application may be beneficial if you:

  • Work mostly from one computer (desktop or laptop).
  • Manage others’ email accounts.
  • Manage others’ calendars.
  • Schedule complex meetings on a regular basis — e.g., recurring meetings with large numbers of people.
  • Have a need to archive messages.
  • Copy and paste email lists from Excel into messages or create contact groups.
  • Manage the workflow of others — e.g., student employees using Tasks.
