Map a Network Drive - Windows 7

Mapping a drive means you assign a drive letter on your computer to a server path.  You can then connect to the server without having to remember and type the path every time.

1. On the Start menu, click Computer

2. In the next window, click Map Network Drive.

Map a Network Drive - Mac OS X

1. Make the Finder utility active, hold the Command key and press the K button to bring up the appropriate server connections.  If Finder is not active, click the blue face icon on the Dock before entering the keyboard command.

2. On the next screen choose to manually specify the network address.  For example, the student W: drive would be:
cifs://studentsrv.student.eku.edu/users/emailusername

Disable clutter folder (How To)

Issue: I would like to disable the clutter folder in my EKU myMail account

Cause: The clutter folder in your myMail account is a new mailbox management feature of Office 365.  It can be turned on or off depending on your preferences.    Clutter analyzes how you process your email and moves the 'unimportant stuff' out of your inbox folder and places that into the clutter folder.  In theory it should leave you with an emptier and distraction-free inbox.  

Your password has changed

Issue: You receive an email with the subject: "Your password has changed" from it.customerservice@eku.edu

Cause: Your password was reset in EKU Direct.

Resolution:

The email will look like this, with your name:
password

As of Friday, March 17, 2017 all EKU students will have a new authentication method that will affect things such as myMail and Office 365 login.  This new authentication page looks like the image below and requires, as the username, your entire EKU email address--not just the portion before the @ sign.  For example, you username used to be jane_doe101 and changed to jane_doe101@mymail.eku.edu.

Resolution:  Click the link in the email and finish the training.  Will probably begin with https://  slate.workplaceanswers.com/ ... etc.
