Hi Folks,
Apologies if this is a duplicate but thread failed to post again, so having to type back in.


Have just subscribed to Office 365 Home,  I notice that other members of the Household are able to use their own Microsoft Accounts now.  Just wondering how I go about setting them up - for example, do I need to associate their account with my subscription so they can download the s/w or what mechanism is used?

Also, I have not installed the Outlook client yet, but assume that it is the same as the Office 2013 desktop version with regards to multiple mail accounts.  On my desktop I need to store my mail in a PST file offline, but I couldn't find any information that this was possible.  I am using 2010 at the moment.

Regards
.

The multiple Microsoft account sharing for Office 365 Premium will be enabled from December.

Depending on the connection method and the email provider, your offline file could be either.PST or .OST

Thanks, how did you arrive at December? I thought it was done back in September - or was that only the US?

Ok, newer PR. I understood that I could log in, install office, logout and the appropriate family member can then login with their Microsoft Account. Will try it tomorrow and see what happens - if not, then 3 week wait I guess.

As regards to the other question on Outlook. I took a backup of my PST file, uninstalled Office 2010, installed office 2013, rebooted and it imported all my settings and accounts without me having to do anything.
