Accessing a Trent Exchange Account As a Student
To start, open up a web browser. In the examples below I am using Google Chrome.
In the address bar enter the following link, substituting firstname.lastname@example.org with the address of the mailbox you would like to access. Ensure you enter in the trailing slash at the end, otherwise this won’t work.
After you press enter you will be brought to a Microsoft Office 365 login page. In the address field (email@example.com) enter in your Trent email address and click Sign In or press Enter. Ignore the password field at this point.
Microsoft displays a notice that it will be redirecting you to your organization’s sign-in page. It may take a few seconds depending on your internet connection.
Now you will be looking at the myTrent ADFS (Active Directory Federation Services) login page. Enter in your Trent username and password.
After you click Login you will see that the Outlook Web App (OWA) is attempting to log you into the email account you’re trying to access.
Assuming we have the appropriate access and we remembered all our slashes then the email account should load. In the example below AB User was able to access firstname.lastname@example.org.
It is important to note that any action you perform, any email you send or reply to, is that of the account you are accessing and not your own. If AB User sends an email from here it will, in every sense, come from the DemoSharedMbox account.
