Scheduling a meeting in the Outlook Web App

Many students, faculty and staff rely on the Outlook (Exchange) calendar to plan and schedule meetings. This works only if the people attending the meeting keep their calendar up to date.

To assist with scheduling events, a best practice is to enter “Busy” events, when you don’t want meetings scheduled. For example, if I’m taking Friday off, I would create a “Busy” event from 8am to 5pm on Friday.

To schedule a meeting with someone

  1. Visit the Office 365 website and login using SSO.
  2. Click the Applications icon (the 3×3 grid in the upper left) and choose Calendar (may be hidden so choose “All apps.”
  3. In the Calendar app, choose “New event” in the bar, or just click on the time you want and it will open the new event dialog.
  4. The “Add a title” field is the brief summary and will appear as the email subject line.
  5. You should put any people you want to invite in “Invite required attendees,” just start typing their name!
    • You can invite multiple people.
    • If there’s a conflict, a future time may be suggested.
    • If you don’t see any available times that work for you, you can choose “More options” at the bottom, then choose “Scheduling Assistant” in the menu, or move on to the next section to learn how to view the person’s calendar.
  6. Choose a start and end time, and try to keep meetings brief and efficient!
    • You should probably not schedule an event before 8am and after 5pm without checking with the person before…
  7. You can optionally enter a location, typically an office for staff or faculty).
  8. Enter any meeting notes below, such as the agenda. The meeting note will appear in the email body along with the details.
  9. Click “Save” or “Send” (only if you added attendees).

To see another person’s schedule

  1. In Calendar, on the left, scroll down and then hover over “People’s calendars.”
  2. Click the three dots.
  3. Choose “Add calendar” and type the person’s name in.
  4. Their calendar will be added to the “People’s calendars” section
  5. If you want to remove the calendar, click the three dots next to the person’s name.
  6. When you select a person, you will see their calendar and yours, and available times should be quite obvious.

How do I forward Outlook/Exchange emails to other email addresses?

You can forward your MIIS emails to another address by setting up inbox rules through the Outlook Web App.

Faculty and staff should not forward their e-mail as this creates security and privacy concerns.

Please note that your MIIS address is considered your official contact between you and the school. If you are forwarding your MIIS email, it is your responsibility to ensure the forward works so you do not miss important emails.

The following steps were adapted from Microsoft’s instructions found on this link. When forwarding messages, copies of the messages that you forward remains in your mailbox. Note that if you follow the above link, you probably want to redirect your e-mail (the first set of instructions), so that if you reply from the forwarded address, replies will go to the original sender. If you forward your e-mail (using the second instructions), each e-mail will look like it came from your own MIIS account

1. Log into your MIIS account at GO.MIIS.EDU/MAIL

2. In the upper-right of your Outlook Web App window, select Settings > View All Outlook Settings.

3. Under mail settings, click “Forwarding”.

4. Check the “Enable Formatting” box and enter the email address in the To box.

5.  Choose “Save” to create the rule. The set-up is complete!

For more information on mail forwarding, click on this Middlebury wiki found on this link.

How can I fight Viagra spam in Outlook or webmail?

We’ve all been getting quite a bit of Viagra ads here on campus. Fortunately there’s an easy way to put it in its place…the trash. Here are instructions to create rules which will delete most of the current Viagra spam we are getting.

These instructions are for Outlook 2003 or 2007 users.

If you use other means to manage your MIIS email (Mac, Entourage, MIIS to Gmail), these instructions show you how to set up the rule via webmail.
