Our new password policy is now in effect. In addition our new Password Self-Service Recovery portal is now live. The portal will allow you to reset your own password with challenge response questions, create a support pin and also allow you to update your demographics(title, phone, building etc.) for the GroupWise Address book—which is replicated to the various e-mail Address Books around campus. While you do not have to change your password until you receive e-mail notification that it is about to expire, we recommend visiting our portal in the coming weeks to change your password, create a pin and setup your security questions so you can reset your own password. An e-mail was sent out on 10/28 at 12:00 am with all the details. You can find the portal by using the icon to the left,the one on your desktop or in the one in the Application Launcher. The changes were necessary to come into compliance with campus password policies. The good news? Passwords only expire once a year!
All of our computers must be upgraded to Windows 7 by April 2014. If you are still running XP, we'll be in touch with you between now and April to either replace or upgrade your computer to Windows 7.
