Managing Multiple Email Accounts

Outlook 2013 allows you to manage multiple email accounts all in one place. Before you do this, make sure you have set your new password in your Office 365 account. If you have not done that yet, follow these directions. If you have, continue to the Add Account section below.

  1. Go to: http://office.ferris.edu.
  2. Enter your department/generic email account and your temporary password.
  3. You will then be prompted to change your temporary password on the next screen. You will need to enter your temporary password again and then a new password twice. The new password must be a minimum of 8 characters with at least 1 number, 1 upper case, 1 lower case, and cannot contain the name of email account.
  4. Your password is now set.

The process is relatively short and simple. Follow these brief instructions to add an account to your profile.

  1. Click the File tab to open the Backstage view.

  2. On the Info Tab, click Add Account:

    .Multiple Email 1
  3. Follow the prompts to add the new account. If you're adding a personal account, put your name in the "Your Name" section. If you are adding a department account, put the department name in the "Your Name" section:Multiple Email 2

  4. Enter your name (first and last), email address as your MyFSUid@ferris.edu, and your MyFSU password. Click Next, and the client will authenticate your information:
