Cowboy Mail Security enhancements
IT is phasing out Google Mail (OrangeMail) as a supported service.
On 01/31/2021, OrangeMail for Graduated Students will be disabled. Graduated Students must keep an active O-Key password and access your OkState email from cowboymail.okstate.edu. Password expirations exceeding 13 months forfeits the use of your O-Key account and OkState email address.
If you wish to keep receiving emails using your OkState email address, you must do the following:
- Keep O-Key passwords up to date.
- Go to okey.okstate.edu to select “Forgot Password?” to reset your O-Key password.
- Convert Orangemail.okstate.edu to cowboymail.okstate.edu
- Instructions for converting your Orangemail account to Cowboymail are located at it.okstate.edu/services/orange-mail/how-to-change-your-email-destination-from-orange-mail-to-cowboy-mail.html.
- Deploy multifactor authentication
- Instructions for deploying the OKState licensed product for multifactor are located at it.okstate.edu/services/multi-factor-authentication/index.html.
To improve account security, OSU is making some changes to how Cowboy Mail works on November 18th, 2019. This does not affect Orange Mail. Anyone using a third party email client that does not support Exchange will need to switch to one that does. You may continue using the web based version of Cowboy Mail or use Microsoft Outlook, which is available for iOS, Android, macOS, and Windows via Office 365.
Most modern laptops and PC's can install Office 365. See Microsoft for details.
