How to Sign Out Outlook App on Android and iOS Devices
Microsoft Outlook for Android
Write an article about the many ways you can sign out of your Outlook app on your Android device. You can either sign out, or delete the account. If you are unsure which one to pick, know that signing out will only remove access to your emails, while deleting the account will also erase all messages and attachments. Whatever option suits you best, make sure to follow the specific instructions provided by Microsoft in order to ensure a smooth experience!
If you wish to delete your account, make sure you are connected to the internet otherwise this step will be skipped. If you are connected, head directly to step 3.
You can perform this action within the Outlook app itself or at outlook.office365.com.
1) Within the app: tap on settings (the cogwheel in the top-right corner), then under ‘Account’ tap on ‘Manage Account’. A menu should appear with a box labeled ‘Delete Email Account’. Tap it to continue! Make sure that you have signed out of all other devices before deleting your email account as well if multiple devices share said account. This ensures that no messages are deleted from other devices by accident! After choosing this option, your sign-in should immediately be removed and you can begin using the app again after signing back in.
2) At outlook.office365.com: this process is similar to deleting an email account although slightly more complicated due to the amount of steps that it takes. Also, don’t forget that you have to perform this on each device that shares your Outlook account! So if there are multiple devices connected to it, make sure you are logged in on all before continuing so as not to delete any messages by accident! If you are OK with doing so, it is safe for us to proceed. For Outlook users who use their Office 365 credentials when signing into their device(s), these instructions will work just fine for editing or removing your account!
– First, open outlook.office365.com in your web browser and click on ‘Settings’ (top-right corner). Under the tab labeled ‘Account’, you should be able to see which devices are connected to the same Microsoft email address. This is where deleting an Outlook account can become tricky… Below each connected device, there is a dropdown menu with two options – one called ‘Sign Out All Other Sessions’ and one titled ‘Unlink Account’. Make sure that you do NOT choose this latter option for any device but rather only choose it if all other sessions have been closed on that specific device! If the session has not been closed on that device, then clicking this option will delete your messages on that device so avoid doing so when this isn’t the case!
In order to delete an account, you have to select ‘Sign Out All Other Sessions’. In doing so, all sessions will be logged out from your device and you will go back to the main outlook.office365.com where a new box should appear labeled ‘Disassociate Account’. Tap it in order to continue! Once again, make sure not to tap on any other options except for this one as you might delete data in the process by accident! Now just follow Microsoft’s instructions in order for them to verify your request and sign out of Outlook – done!
You can configure a custom domain account in Outlook for Android by going to
Settings – Accounts – Add Account – Exchange. When you add an email address with a custom domain, Outlook automatically sets the Preferred Name field to be that of your custom domain. You’ll then need to type the name that you would like displayed as your primary identity when sending emails from this account. The primary address will show up on all new emails from this account and will be used as the From address if no From addressing is specified at time of creation. For consumer accounts, Outlook also allows for detailed customization of how each outgoing message is addressed including adding images and signatures before sending it out using the ‘Send Options’ link on the top menu or by pressing the Menu > Settings > Options > ‘Custom Signatures’ toggle link to create a personalized signature for your account. You can also use the Custom Categories to set dedicated categories for different folders/accounts within Outlook on Android, making easier sorting and managing emails.
Your contacts are still in Microsoftaccount.com
You can delete them from your phone, but they will still exist on the server. It is much better to sync with a different account or switch providers before deleting data from Android OS. If you delete Outlook from Android OS and want to retrieve them from the phone back into an Outlook format, create a folder in Outlook on your desktop named “Android Contacts” and then Sync twice. On Android OS- go to Settings-Accounts-Other Accounts-Add Account and it should be there as a default setting “Microsoft Exchange”. Give this a separate password so you don’t have access this account this way if not wanted.” To resume syncing, click “add info for”, select the account you just created, and enter the password for that account. Then, click “manual setup” on your android device and manually configure the email settings. You should now be able to access all of your Outlook/Exchange contacts in Android OS.
No, it is included with the Office365 subscription. If you do not have one then go to www.office.com (using a web browser) or download future versions of Microsoft Word or Excel for free which will include this feature already installed within the application. At the time of writing this article, office applications still do not automatically sync directly to Android phones through version updates for some users; therefore it will most likely still require a desktop computer.
Syncing your calendar is going to be done through the same server account in which you signed in initially for a Microsoft Exchange email. The instructions are exactly the same as above in how to add email information however, it will say “Microsoft” instead of Mail. To get this up and running properly it may take some time depending on how fast/slow you want your notifications to work. Go into Google Apps Sync (the application that was installed when signing up) then go into the setting., select where you would like for this information to be synced (phone, pst file, Gmail). When all said and done it should look similar to what is shown below in the image:
1. Outlook on Android (home screen)
2. “Add Account” in Settings (on your phone)
3. Connecting to Exchange Server (via WiFi or 3G connection)
4. Enter your email address and password for your Outlook account
5. Configuring Microsoft Exchange settings for an Outlook account
6. On the next page, enter the same password again and configure Google apps sync (Google calendar)
7. The time it will take to sync is completely dependent on how many items you have in your Gmail/outlook calendars; however, this should be a good indicator of what to expect when syncing calendars from your android with your outlook accounts.
Syncing your contacts is going to be done through the same server account in which you signed in initially for a Microsoft Exchange email. The instructions are exactly the same as above in how to add email information however, it will say “Microsoft” instead of Mail. By default, this application will ignore duplicates so there is no need to worry about repeating any information on any platform. To get this up and running properly it may take some time depending on your phone model; however, most phones can handle syncing multiple accounts very quickly.
1. Outlook (home screen)
2. Settings (on your phone)
3. Connecting to Exchange Server (via WiFi or 3G connection)
4. Enter your email address and password for your Outlook account (if it started with your Microsoft Account then just click on “I already have an account”)
5. Configuring Outlook settings for a Microsoft Exchange account
6. Synced contacts will appear in your phone’s Contacts app alongside any other accounts that you added manually (Google, Facebook, etc.)
The same applications above can be used to create separate synchronization methods between these two services. The possibilities are endless so long as the user has input all of their necessary information into each program/application to actually get things rolling. On Android Phone: Settings-Accounts–Other–Add Account–Microsoft Exchange Server. On Android Tablet: Settings-Accounts–Add Account–Microsoft Exchange Server.
This type of synchronization would be very similar to how Microsoft and Google calendars are synchronized except the application will not look for duplicates so no need to worry there. The possibilities are endless so long as the user has input all of their necessary information into each program/applications to actually get things rolling. On Android Phone: Settings-Accounts–Other–Add Account–Facebook. On Android Tablet: Settings-Accounts–Add Account–Facebook.

With everything set up, all of your “emails” that are saved into your tablet’s email program should now be available on your phone as well. If not, try deleting the account/email address for the phone and re-adding it.
Note: The tablet MUST be connected to WiFi in order to sync up with the phone. As mentioned above, if there is no connection via WiFi or Bluetooth between both devices then synchronization cannot take place without some sort of mobile data (3G, LTE) connection which has its own issues especially if you want to conserve mobile data usage on your phone.
