I am trying to send an email attachment in the Outlook Web App and it just keeps "spinning" and won't attach the document. How do I attach documents to an email?

If you are having problems sending email attachments, check to see what internet browser you are using. Email attachments will not work in Internet Explorer 9. They will work in Internet Explorer 10 or 11 and also Firefox and Chrome.

Where can I find my personal contacts and distribution lists?
  • In Office 365 you will find your personal contacts and distribution lists in the People app.
  • To see personal contacts click on the "arrow" in front of "My Contacts" and then click on the arrow in front of "Other Contacts."

To see distribution lists, at the top of the list of contacts, click on "Lists."

Sometimes when I send email to people, I get an email back letting me know that my message was not delivered. Why does this happen and how can I fix the problem?

Sometimes Outlook email uses out-of-date email address information. This information is stored in an "autocomplete" list in the Sender's email. Click on this link to see step-by-step instructions for fixing the problem.
