Signing out of Outlook on Mac is a simple process that can help protect your privacy and ensure that no one else can access your emails or personal information. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the steps to sign out of Outlook on Mac.

Step 1: Launch Outlook on your Mac by clicking on the application icon in the Dock or by searching for it in Spotlight.

Step 2: Once Outlook is open, click on the “Outlook” menu located in the top left corner of your screen.

Step 3: From the drop-down menu, select “Preferences.” This will open the Preferences window where you can customize various settings for Outlook.

Step 4: In the Preferences window, click on the “Accounts” tab. This tab allows you to manage all your email accounts associated with Outlook.

Step 5: Select the email account that you want to sign out from. If you have multiple accounts added to Outlook, make sure to choose the correct one.

Step 6: Once you have selected the account, click on the “Sign Out” button located at the bottom left corner of the Preferences window. A confirmation dialog box will appear asking if you are sure you want to sign out. Click “Sign Out” again to confirm.
