Important Recommendations -- To Do Before Your Departure
- If you want to save your email for use after you have left campus, you must export your messages to an Outlook Data File using Outlook 365 (not Webmail) while you still have full access to Microsoft Office! Refer to these instructions for details. Note: You may need to purchase your own copy of Office 365 in order to use the exported file, depending on which email program you plan to use.
- Review your MFA settings to make sure they will still be appropriate once you leave campus.
