Current issues/fixes for changes to staff/faculty email authentication

OIT has received reports of Outlook and iOS native mail issues related to the multi-factor authentication changes that took place earlier this morning.

Below are some steps that should resolve the issues:

  • Outlook constantly prompting for password – This should resolve with a complete close of outlook and restart. If issues persist, deleting outlook saved credentials and waiting a moment to restart outlook may help.
  • iOS native mail prompting for password – If an iOS account was setup before iOS 11 or if the account was setup manually on 11 or later (rather than automatically), a user may receive a password prompt. Deleting and re-adding the account to iOS mail will resolve this.

If these steps did not resolve the issue and you need further assistance, please contact the FAU Help Desk 561.297.3999 or submit a help desk ticket.
