  1. Moving from an old computer to a new one, does Outlook follow since I have Office 365 Personal?


    I'm moving from an old laptop to a new one, W10 to W11, and I'll copy/paste my documents and pictures to OneDrive, then from OneDrive back to the new computer, but what about Outlook? Will my Outlook folders and emails in those folders be moved to the new computer as part of my Office 365 subscription?

    :)

    Moving outlook to a new windows 10 computer

    Hi,

    We understand that you'd like to move all your files from the server to your new computer. For us to properly assist you, we'd like to ask some questions:

    • Are you using Office 365 for Business for your server?
    • Are you planning to move all your Office and Outlook files to your new computer?
    • Is your new computer a personal computer or connected to your domain?

    We're looking forward to your response.

    Office 365 Outlook email accounts

    O365 Personal cannot be shared. It can be installed on unlimited number of devices, but it must be activated with the same subscriber Microsoft account on each device.

    Extract from Office 365 subscriptions - On how many devices can Office be installed:

    However, the activation Microsoft account email does not have to be added to Outlook. A fully valid and functional example:
    • User A subscribes to O365 Personal
    • User A installs and activates O365 on his / her laptop
    • User A adds his / her email accounts to Outlook
    • User A installs and activates O365 on User B's laptop
    • User B adds his / her email accounts to Outlook
    The point is, that the O365 Personal subscriber email is required to activate Office on each device, but it don't have to be added to Outlook. In above example, both User A and User B add only their own email accounts to Outlook, and cannot see each other's accounts and emails.

    Exactly.

    Office 365 Outlook email accounts

    The reason I am asking these questions are that two individuals are buying two new laptops and would like to share one Microsoft Office 365 Personal.
    A has a subscription to Microsoft Office 365 Personal already and wants to share the same account with B.
    I have installed Microsoft Office 365 Personal in a second pc B and when launching Outlook all my email accounts from A were loaded. So, I cannot figure out how to install Microsoft Office 365 Personal in a second pc so that my email accounts A are not loaded.
    This raises more questions for me.
    1. So this
      • User A installs and activates O365 on User B's laptop
      • User B adds his / her email accounts to Outlook
      would not apply to Microsoft Office 365 Personal as it breaches the licence agreement?
    2. Am I correct?
    3. If it does apply how can I install Microsoft Office 365 Personal in a second pc so that my email accounts A are not loaded, and I can only add B email account on the second pc?
    4. Would B be able to access A OneDrive?
    5. Or would B have a separate 1TB free space in One drive, or only the free 5GB or none at all?
    6. And most importantly is this even legal or in breach of contract as Microsoft Office 365 Personal is for one user only?
