Most of us have been migrated to Office 365, and we have all Crown users moved by the end of July.

The first time you use Outlook for email on your PC or Mac after migration, you may be asked to close Outlook and re-open it again.

Lync (Skype for Business) will need to be completely shut down and restarted, and credentials entered again. The easiest way to do that is to restart your system.  (Which you should do every day anyway!)

After your mailbox is migrated the new web link is:

Those with email archives will need to have them moved into your main email store with the assistance of IT.

Let us know at or call 952-446-4357 if you  have any comments or questions about email.

The email password for your student email account at Crown is the same password that you already use for, Canvas, and for logging on to campus computers.

The password that you currently use to log into is being synced with the email system. This means that the password you currently use for access will be the same password used to access your student email account.

If you currently use the same password for both and email you do not need to do anything. If you currently have separate passwords, you will need to update the password currently used on your mobile or other devices to access email after this sync happens.

Crown has a self-service password change system at This password change site requires that you have a valid, currently accessible secondary personal non-Crown email address registered at Crown. When a password reset is requested at, a Crown password reset link is sent to your secondary personal email account.

Let us know at or 952-446-4357 if you need help updating your password.
