About Office 365

Office 365 is a cloud-based service that is designed to meet your email, calendar, and collaboration needs, along with several other applications and services available to you as a member of Wright State.

Note: CaTS is the service owner for Microsoft Office 365, however applications and services reside on Microsoft network servers. Frequent additions and changes to these applications and services are rolled out by Microsoft, and may not appear at the same time for all University members due to the time it takes for cloud-based changes to appear in individual accounts. For an overview of when changes will be made, visit the Office 365 Roadmap.

Current Issues With Office 365's Automatic Email Forwarding

Wednesday, May 26, 2021

The CaTS Help Desk was recently notified by Microsoft of an issue with Office 365’s automatic email forwarding service. At this time, messages being forwarded from your Wright State email address to an external email address are being blocked and will not appear in your external email inbox. If you currently have email forwarding set up on your account, you will receive undeliverable error messages due to this issue. The original email will still be located in your Office 365 mailbox.
