- Email on mobile devices: As Microsoft continues to harden and secure their online presence, they have decided to remove clients that connect to email using basic authentication, as opposed to the new modern authentication. On 7/18 we will start to enforce modern authentication to student email accounts over the next several weeks. If you are trying to access your email on a mobile device and are notified that the connection is not secure/connection couldn't be established you will need to remove and then re-add your account. You can also switch to the Microsoft recommended Outlook for mobile which can be found in the iOS and Google stores, respectively. Note that this process will not impact your mailbox. Please feel free to reach out to the TSC at 351-4357 with any questions or issues.
