I don't think you will be able to see it in Outlook.

Outlook online shows Outlook License. You can check Office 365 admin portal if license is assigned.

And by the way did you get issues with regards to Outlook and Office 365 licensing, because if proper license for Office 365 mailbox is assigned you will not get any errors for licensing.

Hi Sajid,

I have checked this, but there is no info about activated product and which version.

What does it mean ?

Check Word for this account info. Word is the "unofficial" licensing app from the past so if you ever need to check for your activation you could open Word and see there from the screenshots the other guys provided. If you are unsure, you can always go to Portal.office.com and sign in there and it will show you if you have access to a license, exchange mailbox, apps, etc.

In outlook, go to File > Office Account (on my version it is the 7th option after info, Open & Export, Save As, Save as Adobe PDF, Save Attachments, Print then Office Account).  Once there you will see the licensing information including "About Outlook" button. when you click that, you get the version and license id.

It is possible to have multiple versions of office installed. If that is the case, I have just uninstalled office and then installed it from office.com. All the user settings do get saved and things come back to life as  you expect. However, I would still back up files and settings before uninstalling.  You can run into issues when installing multiple office35 products. Also confusing is you can install after signing in and choosing "Business" or "Personal" versions. A lot of times people select so fast they do not realize it. Because of that, i have had to reinstall to fix things.

Thanks David. Clicking on the third box down from Office Updates is, "About Outlook" that will give you the license data.
