Hi
Customer: replied 9 days ago.
Sorry can't afford that

You can ignore any phone call offers that pop up - they are sent automatically.

Can you explain a little more about what you are trying to achieve - are you trying to view two different email accounts on your Macbook Pro?

Hi Pete I am trying to add two new email addresses to a new account i set up with Microsoft. I have logged into my account, but cannot see the instructions given on a microsoft page for adding new email addresses.."Outlook > Preferences > Account Click the plus (+) sign > New Account.." They are nowhere to be seen in my email account

Those instructions appear to be for the Outlook application on a computer, not Outlook online.

Try the following:

  1. Settings > View all Outlook settings > Sync email.

  2. Under Connected accounts, select Other email accounts.

  3. On the Connect your account page, enter a display name (the name recipients will see when they receive an email message from you) and the full email address and password of the email account you want to connect to your Outlook.com account.

So I have to install the whole office 365 program? Is that correct?
Customer: replied 9 days ago.
I cannot seem to find the Outlook application on its own..

No, you don't have to install it. You can do this online using the instructions I provided.

Sorry I am being a bit dumb here...Do you have a link that I can click on to find Outlook On Line as it diverts me to the inbox of the app and once there, there is no way to access the settings to View all Outlook settings

You will need to click on the Settings cog - see attached:
