Ospreys E-mail Upgrade June 24-26
Student e-mail, called Ospreys E-mail, will be upgraded to Microsoft Office 365 beginning June 24 and is expected to take three days. This will provide students with 25 gigabytes of space for e-mail and a separate SkyDrive account with which to access Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and One Note web applications. Students will be able to access their Ospreys E-mail account during the upgrade. Students will be sent an e-mail before the upgrade with the details.
Students who use the SkyDrive to store files should go to http://outlook.com BEFORE Monday, June 24 and enter a unique password to ensure uninterrupted access to their SkyDrive files.
After the upgrade, you will have two separate accounts - one for your Ospreys E-mail and another for your SkyDrive (called your Personal Microsoft Account).
After the upgrade, you'll have 25 gigabytes of space for e-mail and a separate SkyDrive account (Microsoft Personal Account) with which to access Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and One Note web applications. Student e-mail addresses are not changing. They will remain N Number@ospreys.unf.edu After the upgrade, changing the password for one account will not change the password for the other.
About your Ospreys E-mail (Office 365) account:
This account provides access to your UNF e-mail and is administered by UNF. You'll access your student e-mail either in the myWings portal or at http://mail.office365.com. In both cases, when prompted to enter a username, enter your Ospreys E-mail address. Your password will be your myWings password.
ID for your Ospreys E-Mail account: N Number@ospreys.unf.edu Password for your Ospreys E-mail account: Your myWings password
If you read your Ospreys E-mail on a mobile device, after the upgrade, you'll need to update the server address and password so it will continue to sync your e-mail. Change the server address from "outlook.com" to "mail.office365.com" (don't include the quotation marks). Your password will be your myWings password.
About your Personal Microsoft account:
This personal account provides access to existing SkyDrive content, Office features, Messenger, and other Microsoft services. After the upgrade, your personal Microsoft account login will no longer be managed by UNF.
ID for your Personal MS account: N Number@ospreys.unf.edu Password for Your Personal MS account: Your password is whatever you set it to before the upgrade at outlook.com. If you never set up a password or don't know remember it, go to http://skydrive.live.com and click on "Can't access your account?".
Do you currently use SkyDrive?
Students who use the SkyDrive should go to http://outlook.com BEFORE Monday, June 24 and enter a unique password to ensure uninterrupted access to their SkyDrive files. If preferred, you may change the e-mail address associated with this account since it will no longer be connected to UNF. It's recommended that you backup any SkyDrive files to a secondary storage location as a preventative measure.
The Microsoft web applications will be in your Personal Microsoft Account with your SkyDrive.
For more information on how your SkyDrive login will be impacted, please review this informational video: Your Account After the Upgrade to Office 365.
