New Login Procedures


Adding your alumni email to devices

For your phone, delete your current email account and re add it. Go under settings, find the mail app, click on Accounts, select your UNBC email account, and click delete account. Click on Add account, choose the Microsoft Exchange account, where it asks for username, please enter your username but add @unbc.ca to it. When it asks for domain, please put uni\ and when it asks for the server address please enter outlook.office365.com

iPhone Example:

  • Go to Settings, find the mail app
  • Select Accounts, select your UNBC email account, select Delete Account
  • Select Add Account, choose Microsoft Exchange
  • Enter your username with @unbc.ca added (eg. if your username is jsmith, enter jsmith@unbc.ca)
  • If it asks for domain, enter uni\
  • If it asks for server address, enter outlook.office365.com

For the Outlook on your computer, it should open up, but it will come up saying it cannot find an account to log into. On that screen, you will want to click on the option to sign in using another account. The next page that comes up should have your UNBC account in the format of username@unbc.ca Click on that account and use it. The rest should go smoothly.
 
If you access your email through the web, you will need to clear your browsing history. Go to outlook.office.com/owa/unbc.ca and sign in with your username@unbc.ca and your regular password.
