While the university promotes the use of innovative technologies and yearns for better integration between core services and mobile applications, the Information Security Office recommends that thoutlookappe UIS community not install or configure Microsoft’s latest mobile app “Outlook for iOS and Android” to be used for connecting to the university’s Exchange services. For those users who have already done so, we recommend that the app be uninstalled and your university password be reset.

This particular application not only stores a copy of the username and password on their servers, but, also stores email messages (including attachments), contacts, and calendar data. This practice violates campus and university policy and as a preventative measure will be blocked from connecting to the UIS mail servers beginning Friday, February 6, 2015.
