Office 365 is designed to work with any version of Microsoft Office that is in Microsoft mainstream support (Outlook2013, Outlook 2010 Sp1 / sp2 after Oct 2014, Outlook for Mac2011 SP3).
Office 365 is not designed to work with earlier versions of Office. Some may still connect, however, you should expect the quality of the user experience to diminish over time, and many new Office 365 experiences will not work at all.
We recommend that you use Outlook 2013 as the most reliable client and this is fully supported by IT Services.
