Are you getting all of your emails?
As a default setting, the web version of Outlook creates a Focused folder and Other folder at the top (where new email messages come through). Students are finding several important Illinois emails in the Other folder and don't get any notifications that there are new emails in there unless they happen to see the new number on that tab (no push notification).
Here's the solution! If the student goes into Settings and turns off the Focused folder settings, all of the emails will go into one Inbox and the issue is solved.
