Can I upgrade Office 365 over Office 2010? My main concern is will Outlook 2010 settings and emails be lost.

 

Thank you

@diagdad Hello, never done it so can't say exactly how it's going to work. You can certainly upgrade, but you should at least backup some files. Settings are probably lost but are easy to configure, so I would focus on the data. I am attaching a couple of links to guide you in the right direction.
