University of Missouri uses Microsoft 365 to provide email accounts for students, faculty, and staff.
Your username for Microsoft 365 is based on your SSO ID, email@example.com.
All official University communications will be sent to your campus email address.
To activate your Microsoft 365 account:
Beginning January 5, 2021, Exchange email accounts will be migrated to the Microsoft 365 cloud platform.
If you are using the Outlook desktop application when your account moves, you will receive a pop-up message:
After restarting the program, you may be required to re-enter your credentials, but the updated configuration should apply automatically.
The Outlook app for mobile devices may require you to remove your mail account, and re-adding the account should automatically detect the updated configuration.
Outlook clients will attempt to auto-discover and configure the correct settings for your firstname.lastname@example.org account.
|Outlook desktop clients||
Outlook 2016 is the minimum supported version for Windows, but will no longer be supported by Microsoft in late 2021.
Outlook 2019 or Office 365 is recommended.
Download Office 365 for Windows and Mac from https://portal.office.com
|Outlook Web App||
OWA provides web-based access to email accounts from almost anywhere you have internet access.
Please visit https://owa.umsl.edu/owa
For Microsoft 365 accounts, please visit https://mail.umsl.edu
The Outlook app is recommended for mobile devices, and should auto-discover the correct settings for your account.
Once your Exchange account moves to Microsoft 365, you may need to delete the existing account profile and re-add it.
|POP/IMAP Clients||Note: Due to limitations and risks with the POP/IMAP protocols, the University has removed POP/IMAP access to faculty/staff email.|
