Please Note: Impending LSU Mail and myLSU Synchronization

Currently, the LSU community maintains both LSU Mail and myLSU credentials

  • LSU Mail is used to authenticate into Office 365 services like Outlook and Skype for Business.
  • myLSU credentials are used to authenticate into on-premises services like desktops, lab equipment, and myLSU. 

However, LSU ITS is synchronizing the two accounts so that users will only have to maintain one set of credentials - their myLSU credentials. Please read below for more information regarding the upcoming changes to myLSU and LSUMail:

  • Your department will adapt this change sometime between September and December of 2018
  • After your departmental synchronization you will be prompted to re-authenticate into services currently authenticated via LSU Mail credentials (e.g. Outlook, Skype for Business, Outlook on mobile phones, etc.)
  • Secondary accounts will also be impacted.
    • If the secondary account is used only to access a mailbox, note that the account will still take the myLSU credentials.
    • You may wish to prepare for this change by verifying you still have access to the secondary account's myLSU credentials
