DND Lookup Folder in Outlook
Oct 19, 2017

A recent update to Microsoft Office for Windows renders the “DND Lookup” folder that many members of the Dartmouth community created in their email account no longer functional.  

This functionality was disabled because a security issue was discovered which allows an attacker to run code on your computer, or to have complete access to your email if you have a folder set up that links to a web page or other remote location.

Therefore, if you need access to Dartmouth directory information, you need to open a web browser and go to https://lookup.dartmouth.edu/.

Contact IT Services with questions, or call 603-646-2999.
