Office 365 will no longer support Internet Explorer 8 after 8 April 2014

Office 365 will no longer support Internet Explorer 8 after 8 April 2014.

For the best, richest experience with Office 365, we strongly recommend that you upgrade to the latest version of Internet Explorer. Internet Explorer 10 is available now, and Internet Explorer 11 is coming soon. Modern versions of Internet Explorer offer faster web browsing, integrated spell-checking, improved security, and more.

Internet Explorer 8 users will not be blocked from connecting to Office 365 after 8 April 2014; however, Internet Explorer 8 users should expect slower performance with Office 365’s Outlook Web App and other Office Web Apps.

If you experience a technical problem connecting to Office 365 from Internet Explorer 8 after 8 April 2014, Microsoft Customer Support and Service may need you to reproduce the problem on a supported browser.

End of support for Windows XP

Microsoft will end all support for Windows XP on 8 April 2014—please upgrade all Windows XP workstations to Windows 8 or Windows 7 prior to this date.

While Office 365 will not block connections from fully patched Windows XP computers after 8 April 2014, connectivity to the service will be at risk. Windows XP workstations that have not deployed all service packs and automatic updates run an even higher risk of Office 365 connectivity issues after support for Windows XP ends.

If you experience a technical problem connecting to Office 365 from a Windows XP machine after 8 April 2014, Microsoft Customer Support and Service will need you to reproduce the problem on a supported operating system.
