Access your Office 365 email & calendar via a web browser (Recommended)

Log in at http://www.office365.ed.ac.uk and click the App Launcher button at the top-left to choose either your email inbox or calendar.

This is the method the University recommends above all others as users log directly into the service instead of via a third-party client, thereby providing the most accurate and up-to-date access.
