Accessing OWA Confusion

This question is answered This question is answered

I am a little confused on what is the best way to access Outlook Web Access for Office 365.


When I go to http://outlook.com, it is asking for my Live ID, not my Office 365 ID (Microsoft Online ID?). If I sign in with my Windows Live ID anyway, I get the following error:


Something went wrong and we can't sign you in right now. Please try again later.


So my question is, what URL do I use to get to my Office 365 account that asks for the right credentials?
