Some users cannot check out LRC items since they cannot log into their NINERMAIL Office365 Outlook

  1. CAM02045
  2. This seems to have been going on for a while. We have no good way to use another browser on the computers that we use for our room booking and equipment circulation system. Besides,
    1. IE8 is the default browser on campus.
    2. Microsoft seems to say it not deprecate it without notice. Rather, pasted from http://community.office365.com/en-us/wikis/manage/office-365-and-internet-explorer-8.aspx states the following (they do not mention XP though, but that is also supported until April 2014):
      1. Why is Office 365 ending support for Internet Explorer 8? [in short, html5]
      2. Why 8 April 2014? Office 365 provides customers 12 months’ notice of disruptive change under our Online Services Support Lifecycle. We announced Office 365 is ending support for Internet Explorer 8 on the System Requirements Wiki on 9 April 2013.

      3. Will Internet Explorer 8 users be blocked from connecting to Office 365 after 8 April 2014? No, Office 365 will not deliberately block Internet Explorer 8 users from accessing the service after 8 April 2014. But after that date, users connecting to Outlook Web App will only be able to use Outlook Web App Light.

    3. ITS says Microsoft told them IE8 is not supported.
    4. The following change does not fix it here on XP SP3:
      1. Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

      2. [HKLM and HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main]
        “XMLHTTP”=dword:00000001

    5. Go figure.
