To get the most out of Outlook.com, we recommend that you use the latest version of your browser, otherwise some features might not work or display properly.
With older browsers like Internet Explorer 7, you’ll be automatically redirected to the Outlook.com basic experience.
Outlook.com supports these browsers or higher versions:
For all versions of Windows Vista SP2 or higher:
Windows Internet Explorer 9 or higher
Google Chrome 35, or higher
Firefox 30 or higher
Mac OS X 10.6 or higher:
Google Chrome 35 or higher
Safari 5.1.10 or higher
Upgrading should only take a few minutes. To get started, choose a browser:
Also make sure Microsoft Silverlight is installed and running for browsers that support it.
To help protect your personal information, Outlook.com always uses a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) connection between our servers and your browser. If you're running a browser that doesn't support SSL (like an older model phone), you won't be able to sign in to your Outlook.com account and might instead see an error page.
