The most common problems when trying to sign in to Office 365 are:
- You receive error message: Error
Cause: You are already logged in to the same service, but with a different account, such as your personal Hotmail account.
Solution: Log out of your private Live / Outlook / Hotmail account or use a different web browser for the university e-mail.
- You receive error message: There is no such Microsoft-konto.../That Microsoft account does not exist ...
Cause: You are trying to log in with your email address.

YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS
Your email address is constructed as follows: firstname.lastname@example.org. You get an additional number after the name if any other account holder has the same name as you.
Search email addresses
You have access to all e-mail addresses of students and staff at the university, by "Search Student or Staff" in "My Account". This means, of course, that your e-mail address is also available to students and staff at the university.
E-mail - spam protection
Our spam protection (spam = undesired e-mail) classifies e-mail messages as spam according to certain rules. Thereafter some e-mails will be moved to the Junk Mail folder depending on which of our spam filters is beeing used. Spam will be tagged with either --SPAM-- or ++SPAM++ in the subject-line.
Please note! It is important that you check the junk mail folder frequently because email can be incorrectly classified as spam, and in such cases report this to servicecenter so that we can adjust this.
Less important email is automatically moved to a separate folder!
"Clutter" is a feature in Outlook, which allows low-priority email to be sorted out and moved to a separate folder automatically. This folder is called "Clutter".
How does it work?
This function sorts the emails with a low priority. Which emails that are considered to have low priority is controlled by which emails you have previously ignored. Thereafter these emails are moved automatically to the Clutter folder. You can get the system to quickly learn which emails that are less important, by manually moving them to the Clutter folder.
Please note that important emails accidentally may be moved to the Clutter folder. Therefore, it is important that you now and then check the emails in the Clutter folder and move those who shouldn't be there to your normal inbox.
You can turn off "Clutter"
If you do not want any email to be moved to Clutter you should disable this feature. In such cases, do this:
- Log into MyPage / Office 365. Go to Mail.
- Go to Settings (the cogwheel), Mail, Automatic Processing, Clutter.
- Uncheck "Separate items identified as Clutter".
- Click Save.
- The folder Clutter is still there but no more emails will be moved into it.
