Change of email tagging method for UMKC (5/19/2021)
In conjunction with the change in how SMTP email will deliver to UMKC mailboxes, the tagging will be adjusted for UMKC mailboxes. All externally-sourced inbound messages to @umkc.edu will receive an tag similar to the tagging now. Since the tagging will be done by Office 365, it may be slightly different in color, appearance, or wording. Attempts will be made to keep it as consistent as possible with the pre-May 19th version of the tagging.

With all mailboxes and DLs migrated, delivery will be changed to go directly to Office 365. Each UMKC campus domain will need to adopt the new MX record value, and for groups whose DNS is managed by a 3rd party, we will provide you with the updated MX values.
