New Hawk ID password for ITS (Blue) E-mail account holders
On Dec. 12 University of Iowa Information Technology Services (ITS) notified
ITS (Blue) E-mail account holders (e.g., Eudora, WebMail, Pine, etc.) that
they will need to begin using the Hawk ID and Hawk ID Password for authentication,
effective Jan. 13, 2003. Prior to Jan. 13 it is very important that users
find out what their Hawk ID and associated Hawk ID Password are, and be ready
to use them on January 13. If ITS (Blue) E-mail account holders are unsure,
or to verify what their Hawk ID and Hawk ID Password are, go to http://hawkid.uiowa.edu
and click on the ITS (Blue) E-mail link.
Remember that how ITS (Blue) E-mail account holders access ITS (Blue) E-mail
will not change until Jan. 13.
The goal of the Hawk ID and Hawk ID Password is to provide a simplified
sign-on experience for ITS (Blue) E-mail account holders at the UI by reducing
the number of passwords that they have to remember.
For information about the Hawk ID (including those services affected by
this change), go to http://hawkid.uiowa.edu.
If you have questions, please contact the ITS Help Desk at 384-HELP (4357)
or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You may also contact your collegiate or local IT support person.
