Cobb County School District has migrated all Outlook email accounts to the cloud, and Instructional Technology wants to provide tips for a smooth transition.
Outlook 2016 and Outlook within Office 365 remain synced. You can check your email through either version at school or home using your teacher laptop. If you are on a personal device, you need to log in via Office 365 to access your work email.
EMA will still operate as normal-if you need to recover a deleted email. Note: If you do not see the EMA folder, submit a work order.
Email signatures may need to be recreated. It is best practice to create a signature for your email, so others can easily identify your role and location within the District. Use the following directions for Online Signature and Desktop Signature.
Review your shared calendar access, and make sure they are showing up properly in Outlook. If not, then you can re-add a shared calendar to your Outlook desktop application.

The junk folder utilizes a more rigorous sorting system than our district wide SPAM filter. Some items may unintentionally appear there. If you are expecting an email and do not see it, check your junk mail folder.
