Are Xavier faculty and staff using Outlook Live?
While faculty and staff use Xavier's Exchange email system, communication between students using Outlook Live and faculty and staff using Exchange is seamless.
Do I need to use a particular operating system or browser?
No. Outlook Live can be accessed using a variety of operating systems and the following browsers:
- Internet Explorer 7 or later
- Firefox 3.0 or later
- Safari 3.0 or later
Can I block certain email addresses from sending me email, or allow them?
Yes. By clicking on the Options in the upper, right-hand corner of your Live window, you will find a "Block or Allow" option at the bottom of the list in the left-hand column of the screen. From that screen, you can add or remove entries from a Safe Senders and Recipients list and from a Blocked Senders list.
How do I change my Outlook Live password?
Student passwords should be maintained using the Xavier Password Manager (password.xavier.edu). Although students will be able to initiate a password change directly from Outlook Live, any password changes made from there will be overwritten with the password from the Xavier Password Manager during nightly processing.
