We upgraded your FBMI email.
As of 4pm CDT on September 20, all FBMI missionaries will be using Office 365 for Business for their FBMI email.
Many FBMI missionaries upgraded early after receiving our first memo about this.
Now everyone gets to enjoy the benefits. You will receive 1 TB of online file storage, 50 GB of email storage, desktop and mobile integration options, and much more. Learn more from Microsoft.
What to Do
Go to https://portal.office.com and login with your new credentials. The email login link on this page has been updated accordingly.
After logging in, you will be prompted to change your password and set up some security questions.
Your New Credentials
Temporary Password: (email firstname.lastname@example.org to receive your password.)
Note: People can still email you without including the period between your first and last name, but the primary name for your email now includes the period. Either way will still work though.
Manage Emails Directly
You will be able to manage your FBMI emails online or using a desktop or mobile application, such as Outlook. Learn more.
Your FBMI emails will no longer forward to another email account (if they were before).
After logging in and changing your password, you can get set up on your mobile device. Simply delete your FBMI email account from your mobile device and then follow Microsoft’s instruction here.
(For mobile set up, follow instructions for an “Exchange” email account after you select the mobile platform you use.)
