Outlook Password Portal
The myAccount@MU service provides Millersville University employees access to the Outlook Password Portal, a place to manage their Outlook (mu_domain) account without the need to contact the Help Desk. myAccount@MU facilitates changing a forgotten password by answering two security questions that are established when first accessing the service.
myAccount@MU allows employees to:
- Reset forgotten passwords without assistance from the Help Desk.
- Set a security Personal Identification Number (PIN).
- Select a security question and provide your personalized answer.
- Better secure the account by meeting industry-standard password complexity.
- Better protect university data by changing the password every 180 days.
Information Technology strongly recommends using myAccount@MU for account management, it provides much more flexibility in self-service. If however you choose to not use the portal, there are alternative methods for changing your password every 180 days. These methods will change the password only, they will not help reset a forgotten password.
