How to turn off focused inbox

ISSUE: Student missing emails in inbox

RESOLUTION: Turn 'Focused Inbox' off in myMail settings

 

Require two-factor verification (2FA) again on a device you've marked as trusted

ISSUE: You want to restore two-factor authentication on all your devices because your device is lost or you think your account is compromised

Change 2FA App Password

Issue: Certain non-browser apps don't support two-factor authentication. This lack of support means that if you're using two-factor authentication, the app won't work.  To get around this problem, you can create an auto-generated password to use with each non-browser app, separate from your normal password.

Note:

Error: “multiple DWR Servlets”
