Password Issues:

The new E-mail Server will not accept passwords less than 5 (five) characters long. If you have difficulty logging in, or if you know your password is less than 5 characters long you will need to go and change your password.

On the Rowan "Change your Password Page" Your password for both email and logging into all of Rowan's network resources will be changed and synched. In the fields provided, enter your user name (not your email address - only use your email address to log into webmail), your current password (which we've set to your SSN), the password you wish to change to, and the new password again (your new password needs to be atleast 5 characters long). Finally, hit submit and wait for the web site to confirm that your password has been changed. Now you can use the new password to log onto the Outlook Webmail system and network resources on Campus.

Configure Microsoft Outlook for use from Off-Campus

If you have a copy of Microsoft Outlook 2000 or 2003 installed on your home computer you can access your Exchange account for use from home as if you were on campus.

You can find the step-by-step instructions in our Knowledgebase. Visit and enter the knowledgebase. Click "Search the Knowledgebase" and enter the keywords "configure outlook from home". The first 2 results will be instructions for setting up either Outlook 2000 and 2003.
