For Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) to work with email, newer, more secure protocols must be used.  Information Services recommend the use of the Microsoft Outlook App.  It’s compatible and available on all major operating systems.

If your device does not support Microsoft Outlook, you can access email through the iNapier app, or through webmail.
