2. What's the difference between Outlook 365 (aka Outlook Web App) and Outlook 2010?
Outlook 365 is a web based (cloud) email program. You can use it in school or at home but it requires an additional login in both locations. Outlook 2010 (aka "Client") , is part of the Office 2010 Suite that is on every school computer. This program resides on your hard drive in school. Once you log on to a school computer you will only have to establish your credentials one time and then you will not have to login again to access your email through Outlook 2010.
3. How do I log onto Outlook 2010?
Click Start > All Programs > Microsoft Office > Microsoft Outlook 2010. You can right click on the Outlook icon and select
"Pin to Start Menu" to put the shortcut on the left side of the start menu. Do not use Outlook Express if you see an icon for that program.

For official addresses and outside mail the name is First.Last@vbschools.com; i.e. Lee.Mitchell@vbschools.com There is usually no middle initial in this address. The user id to logon to Office365 though would be your network user ID, followed by @vbschools.com; i.e. email@example.com
