    Office 365 is a subscription for office(word,excel,PowerPoint etc.). It costs money.

    Outlook is an email account.its free. Outlook application that comes with office is used to check email manage contacts etc.

    The two are not related. If you need more help pm me.

    I'm in the same boat.

    It has some extra bells and whistles you wont use most likely. You get Office on your computer, etc.

    Here's how I have it set up:

    I use both emails.
    only my personal OneDrive.
    Office subscription courtesy the school.
    On my phone I sign in with my personal MS account and add my school account to unlock all the features.
    only my personal calendar
    only my personal contacts, although I can connect to my school's contact DB.

    I don't use Tasks.
    Email has more bells and whistles I think.
    You can't connect them together directly, but devices you use them on can blend them somewhat.
