Outlook Required Starting Feb. 14

Users must use Outlook to access UARK email and calendar resources starting Feb. 14.

Users must use Outlook to access UARK email and calendar resources starting Feb. 14.

If you're using your phone's default mail app or a third-party email app like Apple Mail, it's time to switch! To protect institutional and personal data, Microsoft Outlook will be required to access UARK email and calendar starting Monday, Feb. 14.

The Outlook app is available for download at office.uark.edu and for mobile devices in the Apple App Store or Google Play Store. Log in with your @uark.edu email address and password. If prompted, select Office 365. 

Outlook Online is also available at outlook.uark.edu to securely access your UARK email and calendar from any web browser.

This change is being implemented to increase the security of institutional and personal data for our students, faculty and staff. With the rise of university email on personal devices, security measures provided by Outlook are necessary. These include, but are not limited to, the enforcement of multi-factor authentication, ability to secure email data if the device is lost or stolen, and email encryption.

In addition to increased security, Outlook allows you to manage both your UARK email and calendar from one app and is completely integrated with the Office 365 suite, including OneDrive and Teams (see Outlook tips and tricks you should know). 

If you have questions or need help setting up Outlook, please contact your local IT team or the IT Help Desk at help.uark.edu
