Access from unauthorised e-mail clients blocked Access from unauthorised e-mail clients blocked

If you use one of the following e-mail programmes to retrieve your university e-mails, this is no longer possible with immediate effect:

What to do now?

Should you use one of the applications mentioned above, please change immediately (as mentioned in the news from March 20, 2024) to another product and change your Uni-ID password afterwards.

The HRZ will block the retrieval through cloud based E-Mail programmes from the 30.03.2024 by enforcing appropriate technical measures. This means that afterwards you will not be able to receive or send e-mails through the aforementioned applications.

Security risks also with cloud-backup

Please note that backup applications from Google and Apple are also categorised as highly problematic and must not be used, when they lead to outflow of university data (incl. login-data) to external cloud storages.
