Update - Live@edu will be upgrading to Office 365
During the week commencing 22nd July 2013 ISS will be upgrading undergraduate students to Microsoft Office 365.
Login will continue to be via webmail.lancs.ac.uk using WebLogin and your usual University account login details.
On completion of the move, your mailbox quota will have increased from 10GB to 25GB and you will easily be able to access your University email on Office 365, your Hotmail or your Outlook Live email at the same time in a single browser. The look and feel of the email interface will not change.
Only the email part of Office 365 will be implemented during this upgrade. A Further upgrade will occur later in the year to enhance Office 365. ISS will provide more information about this upgrade nearer to the time.
Updating SkyDrive, Sype, Messenger Before the Upgrade
If you are currently using Skydrive or Skype/Messenger with your university LiveId (firstname.lastname@example.org) then in order to continue using them after the upgrade to Office 365 you must set a password prior to the upgrade in July. In order to set a Live@edu password go to the following page and choose the option "Set Live@edu password"
Access to SkyDrive After the Upgrade
After the upgrade Skydrive will not be accessible via your Office 365 email account.
Current users of Live@edu will be given an additional ID from Microsoft for personal use (associated with your skydrive account) .
This ID will be the same as your University issued LiveID and have the same format email@example.com
After the upgrade you will be able to access your Skydrive with your personal account at: https://skydrive.live.com/
Access via Mobile Devices
If you currently access email using a mobile device then after the upgrade you’ll no longer require a separate password and will access your email via your University account details. Lancaster Answer articles will be updated nearer the time of the upgrade on how to configure accounts on the common mobile phones and devices.
