You are receiving this message to alert you to an upcoming change to Ivey’s use of the Microsoft Office 365 service that may affect how you log into email when using an email application (such as Outlook or mobile apps).
Browser-based access to https://myoffice.ivey.ca will not be affected.
Later this year, Microsoft will be forcing the use of a connection method called Modern Authentication which provides a stronger and more secure connection for you. If you are not already using this connection method to access Office 365, you may need to update your email application or input your username and password again once the change has taken place.
As noted above, access to Office 365 over browsers will not be affected, so access to your email will not be lost at any point.
How to know if this affects you:
If you have email forwarding set up to a personal address from your Ivey account, these changes will not affect you.
If you have your Ivey email configured directly in an app on your phone, tablet or computer, you may be affected. To determine if you are using an email application that is compatible with Modern Authentication, please refer to email compatibility information here: (https://support.ivey.ca/hc/en-us/articles/360056143411)
Action needed if you are affected:
In advance of this change, you can upgrade to the most secure supported email application. If you need assistance with this, please contact your local IT support person, or the Ivey IT Centre (https://support.ivey.ca/hc/en-us)
When this change will be made:
This change will be made for Ivey Office 365 accounts starting Monday, March 8th, 2021 at 8am.
Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) for Office 365:
Later this year, Ivey will be implementing the use of Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) for Office 365 (inclusive of email). MFA is a second piece of "proof" of your digital identity that can help in ensuring only you are able to access your Ivey account. The use of MFA for Office 365 will be a key factor in minimizing the threats of spam and PHISHing at Ivey. The Modern Authentication change is a step needed to enable MFA for Office 365 which will happen later in this year if you are not already using it. You will receive communications about the mandatory use of MFA for Office 365 in the coming months.
