Incidents and planned changes

20-09-2021
In the context of the AVG (GDPR) and to prevent phishing, the online phonebook telefoonboek.ugent.be has been transformed into an internal application (login required) for employees.
 
24-08-2021 The e-mail with an empty subject and the request to verify your account in response to phishing mails is of course a phishing message!
27-07-2021
The login method for Exchange via MS Azure AD has changed.
This can sometimes cause the error message that the account was not found with the personal mailboxes. Solution: choose 'Sign in with a different account' and then enter your email address.
For the shared mailboxes, the change is more drastic: instead of logging in with the address of the shared mailbox, as suggested in the MS login screen, you have to choose again to log in with a different account, and then (again) the  MFA procedure based on your own UGent e-mail address instead of the address of the shared mailbox!
