On January 3rd, 2013, current student email accounts were migrated to Office 365. New students (starting Spring 2013) will be on Office 365 only. Your old Live@EDU email account (ex. firstname.lastname@example.org) becomes your personal email account. This account is used to access your SkyDrive files and other Microsoft services like Messenger.
The password for this account cannot be reset by the Division of Information Technology (DoIT) should you forget it. If you need help with this account, please see Microsoft account help.
With Windows Live, SkyDrive, you can store, access, and share files with friends or co-workers, no matter where you are as long as you’re online.
With Windows Live Photo Gallery, it’s a snap to import, edit, and share your photos. Tagging helps keep your pictures organized so that great shot from the family reunion or the big game is easy to find.
