Office 365 (Outlook for Mac) - Subscribe/Unsubscribe to an account

This document explains how to subscribe to (or 'access') an account in Outlook for Mac for which you have been linked to (or been granted full mailbox permissions). If you have only been granted permissions to a specific calendar or email folder of another account, use the following instructions instead: User or Service Account | Resource Account.

Important:

  • You must have full mailbox permissions to the account you are attempting to subscribe to.
  • If you are linked to a NetID or Service account, you are automatically provided full mailbox permissions and send-as permissions to the account.
  • If you are set as the owner of a resource account, you are granted full mailbox permissions.
  • The service account must be visible in the Global Address List (GAL).
  • If you know the account's credentials, use these instructions to add another account to your Outlook configuration.
