- The initial logon screen has changed from a blue theme to a yellow theme.
- Faculty and staff who have created a bookmark directly to the logon screen may find their links are broken after this upgrade. Please change those links to http://webmail.salisbury.edu rather than linking directly to the logon page to guarantee that your bookmark will always be valid.
- On the initial logon screen, Use the light version of Outlook Web App is not checked by default for non-Internet Explorer browsers. Despite this change, users of Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Safari and other non-IE browsers will still load the light version of Outlook WebAccess by default.
