Tech FAQs

Q: Are you having trouble with Outlook Web Access and the Chrome Browser?

A. Chrome Version 37 eliminated the necessary pop ups that OWA requires to function correctly.  You can read more here.

Q: Why is it important to register my MTSO email password immediately?

A: If you haven’t registered your password, you should do so immediately. Here are instructions. Once you’ve registered your password, you’ll be able to reset it yourself immediately if it is lost or forgotten. If you don’t register your password, you run the risk of being locked out of email and other MTSO online resources for an extended period of time.

Q: How do I reset my password or get a new one if I’ve forgotten my old one?

A: Visit this page for instructions.

Q: Why doesn’t the student/faculty portal work in my Firefox or Internet Explorer 10/11 browser?

A: The Firefox browser does not support the portal. It’s unknown whether this functionality will exist within Firefox in the future. Please use a different browser. If you are using Internet Explorer 10 or 11, you will need enable compatibility mode. Instructions for enabling compatibility mode on IE 10 are here.  Instructions for enabling compatibility mode on IE 11 are here.
