The beginning of every semester, K-State sees a significant increase in the number of phishing-scam emails trying to steal eID passwords. These emails try to trick K-Staters into providing their eID and password to criminals under the guise of “false emergency” emails, including:
“Upgrade your webmail account!”
“Your mailbox storage limit is full!”
“Your data/photos/etc. will be lost!”
THESE ARE ALL SCAMS. K-State Information Technology Services staff will NEVER ask for your password in an email. Do not reply to these scam emails, or click a link in email and fill out a form with your eID and password.
Discuss Office 365 socially with other K-Staters. Join K-State’s Office 365 Migration group on Yammer. It’s a social venue (similar to Facebook) specifically for those with @ksu.edu addresses. Create an @ksu.edu account first. See K-State’s Getting Started with Yammer resource.
Information Technology Services will continue offering “Introduction to Office 365″ sessions throughout December. Introductory sessions will be offered in the Hale Library Hemisphere Room and the K-State Student Union Little Theatre. There will also be opportunities to join Q&A sessions via Zoom. No registration is required for any of these sessions. Continue reading “Learn Office 365: Training and question-answer sessions scheduled”→

The differences between the two are diminishing over time. If you do not share your calendar or email folders with anyone, the Outlook Web App will fit your needs. If you share email folders, share your calendar with others for them to manage, or manage others’ calendars, you should use the Outlook desktop client.
