STUDENT COMPUTING FEE PROPOSAL
The purpose of the student computing fee is to produce funding in order to provide EKU students with accessible, reliable, and appropriate computing resources that will enhance their educational experience.
Many email clients will likely configure the necessary settings if you provide your myMail address and password. In case they don’t:
POP setting (the first method of downloading mail; clients usually give you the option of keeping or removing a copy of messages stored on myMail site )
Server name: outlook.office365.com
Encryption method: TLS
Issue: I would like to disable the clutter folder in my EKU myMail account
Cause: The clutter folder in your myMail account is a new mailbox management feature of Office 365. It can be turned on or off depending on your preferences. Clutter analyzes how you process your email and moves the 'unimportant stuff' out of your inbox folder and places that into the clutter folder. In theory it should leave you with an emptier and distraction-free inbox.
1. Install Google Drive App on a computer
2. Log in to Google Drive with personal account
3. Tell app to sync data to a folder on your computer; this might take a while
4. Disconnect personal account from Google Drive
5. Relaunch Google Drive and log in with EKU account
6. Tell app to sync data with same folder as in Step 3; this might take a while
So basic flow is (down and up) is personal cloud storage ---> local computer drive ----> EKU cloud storage:
ISSUE: While trying to activate my EKU student email account, I receive the error 'Your account information is not available'
RESOLUTION: This means you have been accepted by the university but your email account is still not created in our system. Generally if you give IT 2-3 days (not including weekends/breaks) it will fix itself.
If, however, you still get the same error after waiting 2-3 days (not including weekends/breaks) then you should call the IT Service Desk: 859-622-3000
As of Friday, March 17, 2017 all EKU students will have a new authentication method that will affect things such as myMail and Office 365 login. This new authentication page looks like the image below and requires, as the username, your entire EKU email address--not just the portion before the @ sign. For example, you username used to be jane_doe101 and changed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Workstations in the workplace are sometimes easy targets for criminal activity. Whenever a laptop or mobile device is lost or stolen, the data on that device has also been stolen and if proprietary EKU data is lost or compromised, the resulting damage can be much greater than the cost of replacing the equipment. Some tips:
Leaving EKU? Whether you're about to graduate, retire, or take another job, take these steps to make your transition as smooth as possible.
Effective Wednesday, October 1, 2018, EKU IT--to remain in legal compliance with both Microsoft, Google, and our software vendors-- must remove access to Office 365, Google app services, and university licensed software as listed below.
Like most people, you've probably accumulated a lot of personal information on your mobile device. The valuable data makes these devices a target for thieves and cybercriminals. These tips are especially important if university data is on the mobile device:
Criminals use malicious email and websites to try to trick you into revealing your password or other sensitive information or to infect your computer with malware. Phishing emails often use urgent language, asks for personal information, and has grammatical, typographical, or other obvious errors.

If your password is at risk, you may need to change it more often. Ask yourself the questions below to see if you need to change your password now. Balance your answers with the need to have a password that you can remember without having to write it down. If you have a strong, secure password that is easy for you to remember and you can use it with care, you may not need to change it as often as someone whose password is more vulnerable.
