Highly-restricted information cannot be stored or sent in email (on-premises or in the cloud).
Anyone who handles restricted information should enroll in two-factor authentication (2FA), powered by Duo.
Microsoft 365 apps (e.g OneDrive) are approved for highly restricted information if 2FA is used.
Step 1A: Check to see if your migration is complete
On your migration day, if you want to check to see if you have been migrated to Microsoft 365, log in to https://connect.uwaterloo.ca. If you see your mail, then you have not yet been migrated. If you see a forwarding link, then your migration to Microsoft 365 email is complete.
Step 1B: Reconfigure Outlook account settings
I've been migrated to Microsoft 365. What do I need to do before I log in?
Ensure you are using a recent version of Outlook (e.g., Outlook 2016, 2019, or M365) and it is up to date. If you cannot update to a recent version, you can access your Microsoft 365 mailbox via https://portal.office.com .
Before you log in, you may need to reconfigure Outlook settings depending on which application you're using.
Shut down Outlook and restart it again. Send a test message to ensure that you can send and receive email.
You should be prompted to log in once Outlook restarts.
If Outlook does not prompt you for a password, you receive an error, or if you can't send email, you may need to re-create your profile and/or remove credentials from the Credential Manager; please go to: Managing Outlook Profiles on Windows 10 for more information on these topics.
