Unable to update distribution list

FSU theme not appearing in Outlook Web App (OWA)
Occasionally after logging in to the Web version of Outlook your theme will be blue/black instead of the default FSU theme or the theme you selected. This does not impact functionality, but can be resolved by either refreshing the page or signing out/back in.

Login page cut off in iOS
Some iOS devices do not properly display the FSU Office 365 login page when trying to sign in to Microsoft Office apps such as Word or Outlook. This is a visual bug and should not impact your ability to sign in.

Replying to emails from Outlook Web App (OWA)
Please be aware when replying to an email from OWA the default reply setting is set to "Reply All".  To just reply to the sender, you can select reply from the drop down menu to the right.

Unable to access public folders in Outlook
Some users have experienced an inability to access public folders in Outlook after being upgraded to Office 365. If you are using Outlook 2010 or later and are unable to access public folders after being upgraded submit a support request.

Not receiving new emails in Thunderbird
After adding your email account in Thunderbird, your entire mailbox will be downloaded. Any email you are sent during this time will not be downloaded until after your mailbox download has finished, which could take several hours if you have a large number of items. To ensure you do not have miss any emails after configuring your email account with Thunderbird, use OWA to access your email. 

Some users can no longer access generic mailboxes
Prior to the Office 365 upgrade, students or other users may have been able to access a department or organization's generic mailbox using an unsupported method. Once a generic mailbox has been migrated to Office 365 each user MUST possess an employee email address to access the mailbox. There are no workarounds or exceptions to this.
