UW-Madison Box - Outlook Mobile App Integration Disabled

Due to security concerns, the Outlook Mobile App integration with Box has been disabled for UW-Madison users. This document describes the reason for doing so as well as the error message that will appear as a result of this.

The creation of the Outlook Mobile App for iOS and Android, which allows Box content to be directly attached to Outlook items such as emails, has raised concerns regarding data security. Accessing your UW-Madison Box account via the Outlook Mobile App causes both your credentials as well as account data to be stored by a third-party that does not have an agreement with UW-Madison.

The official posting can be found here: http://www.doit.wisc.edu/news/important-security-information-ms-outlook-mobile-app-users/

For the above reasons, UW-Madison services, including Box, have been disabled for this application. If you attempt to access your Box account through the Outlook Mobile App, you will receive the following error message:

This application cannot be used because it is not allows by your Box administrator. If you have any questions, please contact your administrator at criley@wisc.edu.
