Student Email Access
Student email accounts are Office 365 accounts, as opposed to Gmail accounts.  Any mail sent to a student account ends up in their Office 365 mailbox.

 

To access that mailbox from home, students should follow the steps below, using their lastname.firstname@holyfam.org email address plus their computer logon password in the format hfrs####.   Here are the steps:

 Home computer access to HFRS email

  • Use any web browser to navigate to https://outlook.office365.com
  • If prompted, select “Work or School Account”
  • Sign in with your Office 365 Outlook email address and Office 365 password.

  • Open your app tray and click on Settings, then Accounts and Sync, then Add Account
  • Wording for the type of account may vary, but select the Exchange or Corporate option.
  • Enter your Office 365 Outlook email address and Office 365 password (above).
  • Type Outlook.Office365.com in the Server box. 
  • Click Next; Choose which items you would like to synchronize; add a nickname for the account.
  • Tap Finish or Finish Setup
  • Your email should now download. The first download can take several minutes. By default, only the last 14 days of data will sync. Some devices will automatically download a security profile and ask you to accept it. Please click on allow or install and your device should start to sync.
