Connect to Office365 Outlook2007

If I can connect using mobile device using server address outlook.office365.com to a test domain name. What is the address to connect manually using outlook 2007. I think under more settings there is a connection tab to put in proxy address. this is what I may be looking for. The above address being in the server name field??

My worry once we move our mail.ourdomain.com to the exchange online the connection will try to automatically connect to our exchange server in the domain on site which in essence will no longer receive and send emails because of the DNS change. Only need the exchange on site temporarily to access old and unread emails using a 2 profile setup in outlook.

Am I approaching this correctly...?

Outlook 2007 would use 'Outlook Anywhere' to connect and would be configured to use the same outlook.office365.com address.

You can configure to use Autodiscover to use this automatically, but here's some info that breaks it down nicely for a manual configuration:

Thanks. I was giving the step beforehand. However, under my login to office 365 portal there is no ABOUT under help. I am global admin.

You can find your server address if you go to mail.office365.com while you are logged in. It will automatically resolve to https://podXXXXX.outlook.com
