  1. Open the email invitation, and select Open Microsoft Teams. If you don't see the invitation, check your junk or spam folder.

    1. If your email address has not previously been used to create a Microsoft account, you'll need to create one.
      On the Create account dialog, select Next, create a password, and select Next.

    2. To verify your email address, open the verification email, and copy the security code.

    3. Enter your security code in the Verify email dialog, select Next, enter the CAPTCHA in the Enter the characters you see line, select Next, then Accept.
