OSU Drupal "End of Life" Message

October 1, 2020 - IT will remove remaining sites and decommission the server. Any sites that have not been migrated will be permanently deleted and users will not be able to access the site via a web browser.

We are currently in the process of moving all CEAT controlled sites to the new version of Omni Update that we see on the OSU main page.

During this migration process please understand new site requests and large existing structure changes will be delayed and potentially not be completed until those sites are already migrated to Omni. 

For more information and dates please see the Brand Management details page:  Drupal End of Life Details______________________________________________________________________________________________________

OSU Security Changes Affecting Email Services

As of November 18*, OSU faculty and staff will be required to set their O-Key email destination to Cowboy Mail, OSU's Office 365 email system.

But don’t worry…forwarding email is still possible. You just have to set it up slightly differently.

The steps required are: 

  1. Go in to O-key and reset your mail destination to Cowboy Mail
  2. If you wish to re-enable forwarding, log in to Cowboy Mail and set up forwarding there


Due to the security changes, setting up Cowboy Mail to function from Outlook, Android, and Apple devices can be slightly different as well. 

Here are instructions on how to setup Cowboy Mail on various devices:  Instructions for Setting Up Cowboy Mail


"OSU Helpdesk" phishing emails. 

OSU has been experiencing an increase in phishing emails disguised as requests from an IT group or support team recommending password resets by a provided link. When receiving these emails please be mindful of the content and do not interact with any links or attachments provided. We have outlined a few rules that can assist if you are uncertain how to deal with these emails. 

Do not click any links in the email regardless of the content.

OSU IT, CEAT IT, or any other support team will not email requests to reset passwords or change any user information. The OSU system is not designed to allow support teams the ability to see Okey passwords. Support teams are there as periphial support meaning they wait for users to request assistance. 

If you are not expecting contact from the address that sent the email. Create a new message and ask them the original message's validity. 

Phishing attempts can disguise themselves as coming from real email addresses. This does not mean they are safe to open and or click links. If you are unsure if the message is a real email then start a new email to ask the sender.

Forward any phishing attempt email to OSU IT (

It is best to notify Central IT or CEAT IT when any phishing email is received. 

Here are the steps to report a spam/phishing email to be blocked. How to report a spam message
