  • Address Limitations in Rutgers Connect

    When users are moved to Rutgers Connect, all of the e-mail addresses that the user uses to receive mail will continue to work going forward, however, there are some limitations on what address can be used to send mail in certain circumstances.

    Multiple Domains

    Many areas have gone through name changes or have setup multiple domains to for different reasons.  For example, the School of Arts and Sciences Dean's Office currently uses the domain @sas.rutgers.edu but we used to use @fas.rutgers.edu when we were the Faculty of Arts and Sciences.  Currently, and in Rutgers Connect, both of these domains will continue to work for mail reception.  However, Rutgers Connect will no longer permit mail to be sent using @fas.rutgers.edu.

    Departments that have used mutliple domains will have to choose a single domain as their official domain address and that is what will be used for all outgoing mail when using Rutgers Connect.

    Your Outgoing E-mail Address in Outlook and Outlook Web Access

    Rutgers Connect (RC) limits what addresses mail can be sent from.  Currently only two addresses are officially supported in Outlook and Outlook Web Access. They are:

     - This is simply your NetID and your primary domain.  This is also the address you will use when you login to Rutgers Connect.  

     - The vanity address has been around for some time and is still in use.  You can configure up to three vanity addresses by visiting http://netid.rutgers.edu.  On this page you can also choose one of these three addresses to be your 'SendAs' address in Rutgers Connect.  Once you make this selection you will be able to send mail using Outlook and Outlook Web Access.  There is currently one downside to using this method.  You need to select this alternate outgoing address every time you send a message.

    Your Outgoing E-mail Address in Other Desktop Clients (e.g. Thunderbird, Mac Mail, etc)

    When using the Microsoft method of attaching to Rutgers Connect through Outlook and Outlook Web Access, the sending address is limited to the two listed above and, if you want to use an alternate address, you have to choose it each time.  If you are using an alternate desktop client you have some additional options.

    When connecting alternate mail clients, you have the option of choosing a username that differs from your NetID or vanity address.  If you have an alias setup in Rutgers Connect, you can send using that address and you don't have to choose it each time you send a message.

    For example, assume Jane Smith has been assigned NetID 'js123' and she has chosen a vanity address of  but her department set her up in their mail system as .  When she was migrated to Rutgers Connect, an alias was created called that points to .  Since this alias exists in Rutgers Connect, Jane can setup Thunderbird to continue sending mail as she always has, as .  Note that you can't simply choose any address you'd like, the address has to exist in Rutgers Connect in order for this to work.

    Using Rutgers Connect from a Mobile Device

    Mobile devices generally connect using the same mechanism as Outlook and Outlook Web Access so they have the same limitations with respect to outgoing mail addresses.  However, there is an SAS supported alternate method of configuring your mobile device so you can continue sending mail using the alternate e-mail address while maintaining compliance with the Mobile Management requirement in Rutgers Connect.

    Future Developments

    Rutgers has been in active talks with Microsoft and our migration vendor to find a way to get around these issues in Rutgers Connect.  We are seeking a solution to both the requirement to choose an alternate address each time you send and the limitation on outgoing addresses from Outlook, Outlook Web Access and similarly connected devices.  There is no current timeframe for these issues to be resolved.

    Smishing/Phishing

    Smishing Phishing2Smishing is a form of social engineering, a tactic used by bad actors looking for ways to access and steal our data via text message.

    Phishing like smishing is also a form of social engineering but instead of doing it via text they do it via email.

    In the infographics, you can see how scammers may impersonate people you know, like colleagues, directors, or deans. But they can assume other various identities. Some crafty scammers might even pose as friends, relatives, or company representatives, like Anti-Virus or Microsoft agents.

    Remember, legitimate companies like Microsoft and Apple won't request your info via email, text or warn about your Rutgers email expiring.

    If you have doubts about an email or text, it's wise to contact the sender directly if you're familiar with them.

      

    Fraudulent DUO Alerts

     Fraudulent Duo2Picture this scenario. You are at home, enjoying a wonderful beverage of your choice while watching a program or reading the latest academic article. You suddenly get an unsolicited DUO Push notification from your phone or tablet. You might find yourself thinking, "That is odd", you aren't currently trying to log into a Rutgers site or service. So, why are you receiving a notification? Do not APPROVE it in this scenario, DENY IT and reach out to OIT (833-648-4357) as soon as you are able to. I would also suggest changing your NetID password in this instance as well!

    Here is an info graphic that reiterates the steps on what one should do when receiving one.

     

    Build a Strong Password

    Strong Password2I want to emphasize the importance of strong passwords. While some of you may already be familiar with this topic, it's crucial for others who may find it informative. Password security is a vital defense against unauthorized access to essential systems, services, and data. At Rutgers, our NetID is linked to various crucial services like email, payroll, and benefits, making it imperative that we maintain robust NetID passwords.

    Beyond Rutgers, we all manage numerous login credentials for services like banking, cable, internet, and more. It's common to face the challenge of creating and remembering passwords for these accounts. While it can be frustrating, it's essential to avoid using the same password for everything.

    To enhance our security, we must resist the temptation of having a single, go-to password for all accounts. This practice is critical for safeguarding our financial information, personal identities, and access to various services, whether they're work-related or part of our daily lives. To help with password management, I have some tips to share:

      

    To create memorable passwords:

    • Use phrases, like "carbsforlife," and if some systems allow spaces, your password can then look like this "carbs for life." Tailor complexity to system requirements, like "Carbs4LIFE!"
    • Avoid single words combined with a single number, e.g., "Password1," as they're vulnerable to dictionary attacks.
    • Don't use easily accessible personal information. If friends and family can find it, so can malicious actors.

    Consider password management solutions:

    • Explore password management platforms or password vaults. I use One Password, available at https://1password.com/
    • Password managers help generate, store, and autofill passwords on all your devices.
    • They can be installed in your browser and on Android/iOS devices.
    • Many options offer a free trial, and have a variety of plans, some even have family plans.
    • Other password managers like LastPass and KeePass are available, but research before choosing one.

     

    Juice Jacking

    "Juice Jacking," which is when hackers use public charging stations to steal your data by injecting malicious code into the station to access and steal data from your mobile devices or track them. Here are some tips to help prevent juice jacking while traveling:

    1. Avoid sensitive transactions on public Wi-Fi; use trusted connections.
    2. Keep software updated to prevent security vulnerabilities.
    3. Bring your charger or portable battery for secure device charging.
    4. Turn off Bluetooth when not in use to reduce hacking risks.
    5. Don't leave devices unattended, even briefly.
    6. Beware of shoulder surfers accessing your personal data. (A shoulder surfer is an ill-intentioned person looking over your shoulder with the hopes of peeking at some sensitive data.)

     

    Online Shopping Tips

    Ensure you're on a reputable site that uses HTTPS. Be cautious as some websites aim to steal your information. Don't impulsively click on Google or Bing links when searching for that perfect gift.

     

    Say NO to Remote Sessions with Strangers

    Engaging in remote sessions with strangers can pose risks to your privacy and security. Sharing personal information or accessing sensitive data during these sessions might lead to unintended consequences, such as data breaches or identity theft.

    If you find yourself in a situation where you can’t get in touch with us, e.g: you’re travelling abroad then it is crucial to:

    • Vet and Verify: Before engaging in any remote sessions, conduct thorough research on the individual or organization. Check their credentials, reviews, and legitimacy.

    It is strongly recommended that you reach out to your department's IT team regarding concerns related to your computer or other devices. 

     

    Cyber Security Class recommendations

    1. Learning Mobile Device Security: Build safe habits for mobile devices to reduce risks and protect your privacy.
    2. Securing Your Home Office: Master remote work security, covering work vs. personal use, physical security, Wi-Fi, and more.
    3. Cybersecurity in workplace: Enhance your cybersecurity knowledge, safeguarding data from threats like malware and social engineering.
    4. Security Tips: Access short, 2–3-minute videos on various topics for home and workplace information security.

  • Frequently Asked Questions

    You should first review the FAQ available on the OIT Rutgers Connect Site

    How secure is the new system?

    Microsoft has guaranteed that all data will be transmitted securely between our systems and theirs as well as between its own data centers.   It is also encrypted at rest on Microsoft’s storage. All information is stored in the United States and in compliance with federal information protection and security standards including HIPAA and FISMA. Users who deal with Protected Health Information (PHI) will have additional protections enabled on their accounts to ensure that data sent from the system is only transferred to systems with protections required for PHI.

    How private is the data in the new account?

    The Rutgers policy on data privacy have not changed.  Data stored in the Rutgers Connect account is protected by policy and with technological safeguards.  The Rutgers Computing Policies and Guidelines contain detailed protections regarding the use of the systems and access to data by both users and system administrators.

    Are we required to use the new system?

    The President has mandated that faculty and staff use Rutgers Connect for all Rutgers business. Automatic forwarding out of the system will not be permitted (manual forwarding of individual messages will work as always) and all official communications will be addressed to accounts in Rutgers Connect. 

    Can I use ScarletMail?

    The President has mandated that all faculty and staff be on one system and that system is Rutgers Connect.  No automatic forwarding from Rutgers Connect will be possible and this includes forwarding to ScarletMail (manual forwarding of individual messages will work as always).  While users will maintain their accounts in ScarletApps so they can continue to use the other features of that platform, all Rutgers business should be conducted through Rutgers Connect.

    I have more than one account so, if only one account is being migrated, what will happen to the others?

    Only one account is being migrated by the vendor we've hired to help with this process and that's what we're calling your primary account.  All other accounts that are on Rutgers systems are called secondary accounts and the RUMigrated tool will allow you to both specify a primary and provide details on your secondary accounts.  The vendor, in cooperation with OIT and SAS IT, will migrate the data from your primary account and SAS IT staff will help you migrate the data from any secondary accounts.  If you're using an account on an external system for Rutgers business (e.g. Gmail, Yahoo, etc) we will help you with that migration as well.  If an external account is your "primary" account then you can either choose some other Rutgers account as your primary or select the option that says you don't want your mail migrated by OIT.  SAS IT staff will assist you with that migration.

    Do I have to use Outlook or can I continue to use my existing e-mail client?

    Rutgers Connect supports many methods of reading e-mail so users can continue to use their existing clients.  We do suggest that users become faimilar with the webmail client because that is the easiest way to access your mail from alternate locations and serves as a backup if there are problems with your client. For those running on Windows or Mac, Outlook is the best choice to take advantage of all of the features available in Rutgers Connect.  For users who don't wish to use Outlook or can't because they're running Linux, any IMAP compliant mail client should work with Rutgers Connect.

    How can I access the calendar if I'm not using Outlook?

    If your system doesn't run Outlook we suggest using the web client to access e-mail.  This is similar to the web client that most people use to access other calendars like Google Calendar.  If you're on a Mac you can also use the iCal software that is bundled with your system.

    If only active faculty and staff will be on Rutgers Connect, what system will students and retirees use?

    Anyone without an active employee role and is entitled to a Rutgers e-mail account will be setup in, or moved to, ScarletMail unless their department asserts that they have some other active role and sponsors them for Rutgers Connect access.  During the second phase of the migration process (Account Cleanup, Shared/Task account review and ScarletMail migration) departments will be consulted to determine which accounts should be dropped, migrated to ScarletMail or migrated to Rutgers Connect.  After data has moved, an alias will be created so mail sent to the departmental account will be delivered to the users ScarletMail account.

    Will there be training?

    Yes.  There wil be both online and group training provided.  The vendor that was hired to help with the migration will be providing training materials with supplemental materials being provided by OIT and SAS IT.  More information on training will be provided as we approach the date of transition.

    There's no place to enter information about our shared/task/become accounts.  How are those being handled?

    During phase two of the migration process, SAS IT staff will work with each area to review their existing shared, task and/or become accounts.  We will review each account and determine whether the account is still needed and confirm who should have permission on the account.  At that time we will also determine if the account will be migrated by the vendor or if SAS IT staff will assist you with migrating the existing data to the new system.

    How will mailing lists be handled in the new system?

    If you setup any mailing lists in your existing software, you will have to move them to the new system manually.  This is one of the reasons that we are leaving the old mail servers online after people are migrated.  Centrally and school maintained systems like mailman.rutgers.edu, rams.rutgers.edu and lists.sas.rutgers.edu will continue to function as they have.  We may look at moving these functions into Rutgers Connect in the future but we have no plans to do so during the upcoming migration process. The only change that will occur in these systems relates to the e-mail addresses on the internal Rutgers lists.  Lists that e-mail internal communities like all faculty, all staff, etc, will be updated to ensure that messages are delivered to Rutgers Connect.  For users who are already using Rutgers e-mail addresses, things will remain unchanged.  Users who have external addresses listed in the mailing lists (like Gmail) will have those addresses changed to their new Rutgers Connect address.

    Initial e-mail from SAS IT....

    Everyone,

    You should have received an e-mail from OIT yesterday (Tuesday 2/8) asking you to visit http://rumigrated.rutgers.edu.

    This web page was developed to help gather information for the upcoming migration to Rutgers Connect, which is the name for the new Office 365 based e-mail and calendaring system. It is important that everyone visit this page and provide the requested information.This page will remain up throughout the process and you'll be able to return to it later to provide updated information if necessary. For now, it is important that you get your information in as soon as possible as it will help us with the planning process.

    Rutgers has engaged the services of a vendor to assist us with the migration of approximately 30,000 e-mail accounts. That vendor will only be moving one mailbox per user so, if you have more than one account, other migrations will be handled by your local IT staff. The RUMigrated web page allows you to verify the information we have about your e-mail, specify which account is primary and provide us with any corrections or other information that you want us to know.

    Please keep in mind that President has stated that all Rutgers faculty and staff business must be conducted through a single email system and that system is Rutgers Connect. If you are using non-Rutgers accounts (e.g. Gmail, Yahoo, etc) for Rutgers business, you should provide that information as well and we'll help you move those messages.

    We have created a new page on the SAS IT site where we will post updated, SAS specific, information about this process. You can access this page using the following link: http://sasit.rutgers.edu/rutgers-connect

    Initial e-mail requesting that users visit the RUMigrated tool....

    Rutgers Faculty and Staff,


    Per an announcement made in October, and as noted in the President’s University Strategic Plan, Rutgers is transitioning to a new official centralized university-wide email and calendar service for faculty and staff.  This new service will be called Rutgers Connect.  The Rutgers Connect service, running on Microsoft’s Office 365 system, will effectively facilitate improved communications, collaboration and scheduling across the community.


    As an initial step in the migration process, all faculty and staff will need to select one primary email account to be migrated to the Rutgers Connect system.  The University’s Office of Information Technology (OIT) will use the information it collects about your primary account to coordinate your email and calendar data migration with your departmental IT support staff prior to your date of transition.  Please use the web-based tool below to submit your current email account information.  Note that this tool also collects information about additional email accounts you may have or use, for review by your departmental IT support staff.


    Please log into the website below to select an account no later than March 1, 2016:


    http://rumigrated.rutgers.edu/


    In an effort to help your email and calendar data migration to proceed efficiently, we encourage you to submit your current email account information as soon as possible.  You may continue to modify your information after submission any time before March 1.


    For details about the Rutgers Connect service, please see: https://oit.rutgers.edu/connect.  Your departmental IT support staff will be actively participating in this migration process and will also be able to provide additional information and assistance.  If you have questions about the Rutgers Connect initiative, please contact your local IT support staff.

  • Provisioning a User

    Provisioning New Users in Rutgers Connect

    When a new user is given a NetID, an account is automatically created for them in Rutgers Active Directory (RAD).  Once that account is created, the DirSync software creates the account in Azure Active Directory (AAD).  This is the directory service that Rutgers Connect (RC) uses to authenticate users.

    At this point the user exists in the @connect.rutgers.edu domain in RC but they do not have an Office 365 license assigned and they have not be "claimed" by a department.  Under normal circumstances, the user will need to be licensed and claimed by a department.

    Licensing the User

    Licensing the user is required before their account will work.  This can be done by searching for the user by NetID in the Connect Admin Tool (CAT).  The user will appear with a red box because the account is not yet active.  Click the button to 'Assign Office 365 License' and a license will be assigned.  This change will not be immediate.  It usually takes no more than 15 minutes for this change to sync into AAD but, depending on load, it's possible that it will take longer.  Once this has been completed, you can move on to the next step.

    Claiming the User

    If all you do is assign an Office 365 license, the user will only have the e-mail address of . You have to claim the user in order to give them an account in the domain that you manage.  So, if the user should have an @sas.rutgers.edu address, you'll need to choose that domain in box that is labeled '365 Primary Email Address' and then click 'Update 365 Primary Address.'  From this page you can also set the user's Display Name and assign aliases as well as setup the SendAs Delegation (more on this below the graphic).

    Aliases - Aliases in Office 365 are alternate addresses that will deliver to the user's mailbox.  For example, if user could have an alias of .  However, be careful when assigning these aliases because, at present, users cannot send mail as an alias from Outlook Web Access (OWA), from Outlook or from a mobile device connected via the Microsoft Connector.  New users should either send mail as  or setup a vanity @rutgers.edu address and assign it as their SendAs Delegation Address.  The only way to send e-mail using an alias is to use an alternate e-mail client configured for IMAP and SMTP.

    SendAs Delegation - Rutgers allows for users to setup three vanity address in the @rutgers.edu domain.  Users can choose one of these addresses as their SendAs delegation address so they can send mail using this address in Rutgers Connect.  This address will work in Outlook and OWA (but in OWA they will have to choose it as an alternate address each time the send an e-mail). This address can also be used with an email client configured with IMAP and SMTP.

    Setting up @rutgers.edu forwarding

    Currently, when a new account is created, the old process of pointing that account at RCI by default is still in place.  There is now a button on the user screen in Rutgers Connect that allows you to change their @rutgers.edu aliases to point to the user's @connect address.

    Next Steps for the User

    After the account has been claimed it will, again, take about 15 minutes for that change to sync to AAD.  After that sync has taken place the user should be able to login.  The only exception will be a user who has not changed their password since January 15, 2016.  If their NetID password wasn't changed since that date, the password does not exist in AAD.  The user will need to change their NetID password and, once it has sync'ed to AAD*, they should be able to login using their  username.

    Users can manage their own SendAs address at http://netid.rutgers.edu.

    * The first password sync is the only time a password change will take 15 minutes to take effect.  This is because accounts without a password are created as disabled.  While the password itself syncs almost instantly, the enabling of the account is part of the standard sync that occurs about every 15 minutes.  Once the account has been enabled, password syncs will be virtually instananteous.
