Drury email accounts use Outlook from Microsoft. Your Drury email address is your username followed by @drury.edu. Log into your email account using your email address and your Drury password.
Outlook may be accessed in two ways:
On mobile devices, it’s best to use the free Outlook app from Microsoft rather than the phone’s generic email app. It is available from Google Play on Android devices or from the App Store on Apple devices.
For Macs: See instructions here.
Multi-factor or two-factor authentication offers an additional layer of protection to your email account against hackers. Whenever you try to log into your email account, a code will be sent to your cell phone, and that code must be entered before your account will be opened.
Keep in mind: You must have your cell phone with you to access your email account.
To use two-factor authentication, follow these steps:
Send an email to email@example.com requesting that the function be activated on your account.
The Help Desk will notify you by email when the feature is enabled. Once it’s enabled, you will be unable to log into your email account unless you set up two-factor authentication.
When you receive the email confirming that the feature has been enabled, open your Outlook email.
You will see the information below. Click on “Set it up now” to begin.
Step 1: How should we contact you?
Select Authentication phone, your country and phone number.
For Method, select Send me a code by text message and click Next.
Step 2: We’ve sent a text message to your phone.
You will receive a text message with the code to enter on the screen. Enter the code and click Verify.
Step 3: Keep using your existing applications.
You may need to create passwords to access Outlook on some mobile device email apps. You can avoid this if you use the Outlook app on mobile devices, rather than the device email app.
Click Done to exit the setup.
The next time you want to access your Outlook account, you will see the screen below. Enter the code and click Verify.
Educational email addresses are frequent victims of spam email and phishing attempts. Unfortunately, this means that Drury accounts are particularly vulnerable. Although it’s hard to stop or avoid all fraudulent email, with a little bit of knowledge you can usually steer clear of bad actors.
Things to look for:
Even if you recognize the account the email is from, such as an email from someone at Drury, the email could still be fraudulent. Check the content with the above information in mind. If the email appears to come from a company, contact the company’s customer service via phone or web browser to see if the email is legitimate.
Emails that are suspected of being scams, spam, or phishing attempts may be caught in your email account’s quarantine folder. However, on occasion, it may also quarantine emails that you may want to come to your inbox. To check your account’s quarantine folder, please visit https://protection.office.com/quarantine.
If you think your email has been hacked – usually determined by the fact that you suddenly have a large number of undeliverable email in your Inbox, or you have been blocked from sending emails by Microsoft – don’t worry. Just follow the instructions below:
If you are not a current student, staff, or faculty member, a Help Desk representative will need to update your password for you. Please call (417) 873-7300 for further assistance.
Once your password has been reset, it will take up to 30 minutes for you to be able to log in to your email account. Please wait before attempting to login with the new password.
In the Outlook App:
If you are still concerned about your account, you can set up multi-factor authentication to further secure your data. Email the Help Desk at firstname.lastname@example.org to make your request.
