Upgrade to change webmail login screen, increase security

An upgrade to UNL’s Active Directory will change the look of the Outlook online webmail login screen on Aug. 17. The upgrade will improve Office 365 performance and increase security.

Following the upgrade, mobile users will need to re-authenticate username and passwords.

Benefits to users the Outlook Web application include:

  • Support for every current browser

  • Web client log out errors remediated

  • Auto-detection of preconfigured login preferences

  • New, branded page for online webmail logins, replacing the in-browser, drop-down authentication login. The new login screen is specifically dedicated to Office 365 webmail.

Information Technology Services is completing the Active Directory Federation upgrade to version 3.0. To improve security, ITS is also working with departments and colleges to prepare to disable the NTVLM v1 protocol within Active Directory.
