NEW OFFICE 365 E-MAIL FOR CHIMACUM SCHOOL DISTRICT
Effective August 19th, Chimacum School District will be replacing the on-premises Exchange E-mail and messaging system with the “cloud-based” Microsoft Office 365 E-mail system. E-mail, calendaring, and appointments, as well as many other features, are provided with this service. Office 365 E-mail can be accessed using the Outlook program on a PC or Mac computer, or from any web browser anywhere. There are Outlook apps available for iPhone, iPad and Android devices as well.
On the district web site are links to the new Office 365 E-mail as well as the legacy E-mail. You may read E-mail from the legacy system, but message receipt and delivery will be disabled.
If you are using a Macintosh computer, it will be necessary to update to the latest version of Office 2011. If you wish to access your Office 365 prior to having the Outlook client updated (or installed), please do so via the web browser instructions.
ACCESS YOUR OFFICE 365 E-MAIL ACCOUNT FROM THE WEB
You may do the following steps on any Internet-connected computer with a web browser.
Start a web browser, and navigate to this URL: https://login.microsoftonline.com/
Log on in the following manner:
Username: Your full E-mail address, i.e., email@example.com
Password: Use the temporary password provided to you by IT or District Office staff.
If this is the first time you have logged into your account, you will be prompted to change your password. The password must meet these requirements: Must contain three of the following four and be between 8 and 16 characters: Capital letters, lowercase letters, numbers, and special characters. The password cannot contain the username.
Make note of the new password you have created.
Once the Office 365 password has been changed, you will be taken back to the login screen. After logging in with the new password, click the Outlook link at the top to access your email. If you are using your work computer, do not launch the Outlook client until you have followed the additional steps below.
