Office 365 (Outlook 2011) - Switch between offline/online modes

Offline access lets you use Outlook on your laptop or desktop computer when you're not connected to the Internet.

If you have a lot of work to do, consider going offline to stem the tide of incoming message distractions.

When you switch between working online and offline, all email accounts within your Outlook profile are changed.

  • On the Outlook menu, click Work Offline.

The Online Mode toggle on the Tools ribbon shows that you are working offline.

Tools tab, Offline Mode

Click the Online Mode toggle to return to Online mode.
