Say Farewell to Internet Explorer 11

Internet Explorer 11 logo

Microsoft has announced that their Microsoft 365 apps, including email, OneDrive, and Office online, will no longer support Internet Explorer 11 (IE 11) starting August 17, 2021. Internet Explorer 11 was launched in 2013 when the online environment was much less sophisticated than today’s landscape. Since then, open web standards and newer browsers have enabled better, more innovative online experiences. 

If you continue to use IE 11,  you will have a degraded experience or will not be able to connect to Microsoft 365 apps and services. For degraded experiences, new Microsoft 365 features will not be available, or certain features may cease to work when accessing the app or service via IE 11. The Office of Innovative Technologies recommends using Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, or the new Microsoft Edge as your web browser of choice.  If you need help installing a new web browser, please contact the OIT HelpDesk.
