How to access your Office 365 Email
First things first, rest easy knowing that while you are dealing with figuring out how to access your email, there is quick and easy way to access it regardless if your programs are not installed anymore. Just follow option #1 below.
Access your email from any web browser, anytime, without the need for 3rd party email software. This is called, OWA (Online Web Access).
If you have purchased your email from GoDaddy visit this link: https://sso.godaddy.com/?realm=pass&app=o365 and enter your login and password.
If you have purchased your email directly from Microsoft, visit this link: https://login.microsoftonline.com/and enter your login and password.
If you do not remember your email password, you will need to hit "forgot password" while on the OWA version NOT Outlook and go through that process to reset your password.
If you have trouble with the "forget password" feature, you will have to then go into either your GoDaddy or Microsoft account and reset it manually or get with the company who's providing you the email. That said, try the first step first.
Access your email from Outlook–follow these instructions.
Outlook Setup Instructions
Open Outlook. (Don't have the app? Download it at the Microsoft site.)
Select File then + Add Account.

Enter your Office 365 email password and select Sign In. You might be asked to choose if you want to use this account everywhere on your device. Note: You may need to specify your account type as Work or School or Personal. Select Work or School to continue.
