Switch between accounts
I have 2 Outlook.com accounts, 1 Office365 account, and 1 Gmail account I'd like to access through Outlook.com. Please allow me to switch easily between these accounts. I should be able to log in once, and link all of these together, and then switch between them easily. Currently I need to sign out and sign in to switch.
Thanks for your feedback! This feature will be released over the next month or so.

I have 3 accounts that I use all the time (@outlook.co, @aol, and @gmail). I use Outlook.com to centralize all three for my Windows devices (PCs, laptops and Phone!). I don't want my phone to imap/link to all three because it takes too much battery power. Also I want to centrally manage 1 Inbox (@outlook.com) with rules.

Both the mobile app and the Window 10 mail app allow me to have multiple accounts and display a shared mailbox. New message prompts for which account to send from. All useful stuff. The web version lags behind.
Can you add the same functionality to the web version of Outlook.com thanks.
Need to be able to switch between regular and AKA emails when sending emails.
Let me easily switch between accounts as we could back in the Hotmail days.
need to be able to switch from accounts instead of signing in and signing out

I would love multiple email accounts on outlook.com aswell, just like on the mobile app.
Need to be able to switch between multiple accounts like mobile or Gmail instead of signing in and out would be a great help

My wish is to have two e-mailaddresses in the same outlook app that I can switch between accounts that I can easily get access to my two emailaddress and send to someone or edit my account without problem!
I liked my old outlook more than new outlook, but otherwise everything is fine!
When I first used Windows 10, it was a pleasure to inform the system of my various email accounts - MSN and Gmail. It was simple and automatic.
The old Outlook system is difficult and confusing - I have to enter Server info.
This is crazy. I gave up!
I hope the new system will allow me to integrate my other email accounts and then allow me to switch back and forth without closing out one account to allow me to open another.
Things should get easier, not more difficult and confusing!
I think Outlook should treat connected accounts like POP/SMTP linked accounts: Outlook should delete in the connected account's mailbox the correspondent e-mail I deleted in Outlook.
"Connected accounts" should be just an easy way to setup a link to other services. It is just not convenient at all be forced to log into another services and exclude there all the emails I've already excluded inside Outlook.

your new one is sorry I want the one I had
Where is the Connected Accounts settings??

I went looking for how to attach another e-mail account in the existing beta but could not find any.
Clicking from (my own e-mail) brings up a drop box. As the bottom of this dropbox list there should be an option that says Add email account.
In settings there should be a setting for adding an e-mail account.
Cannot find "connected accounts" option under settings gear icon. Have to exit beta, use "old" version to reconnect imap account, then select beta trial again to restore new functionality.

The new beta will not let you use the different accounts
Outlook supports shared mailboxes. This new beta does not.

Dear Outlook.com staff,
New outlook.com beta is better than before.
However, In my company, we use shared account(Office 365). But I cannot see my shared account. It is very important for me/us. So, after you amend this feature, i will use this beta version.
I am glad that outlook.com became more stylish.
Missing option for send e-mail from another account bound to my outlook account.

Logged in as. I still have more than one Microsoft account and instead of taking me out of mail I want to swap accounts. it was removed before outlook,com was launched. Switching accounts is a pain.

The current beta does not provide any way for me to edit my connected accounts that I can see. Hopefully this comes in a future update.
