Configuring Outlook Live
Our new Email system in Live@edu, will replace RoyalMail as our email server. All returning students will be given a new Email account login, using this format: firstname.lastname@example.org. For example, email@example.com. If there are students with the same name, a number sequence will be added. For example, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Below is information to help students "claim their accounts" and instructions on how to retrieve existing email messages from RoyalMail and send them to Live@edu.
Note: you will continue to use your legacy login ID, for example, email@example.com, to log into my.scranton.edu and for other university issues. The new Live@edu format is for logging into our new email system, using Outlook Live as our program. Your existing university email address doesn't change, it still works, as does the new format. Mail messages will be sent to Outlook Live using either email address, the legacy or the new format.
First, we will establish our new Email account identity in the Live@edu environment. You should have received an email detailing the steps involved with this process, and we have also provided an easy to follow step-by-step, as well.
