Microsoft has announced that the native Mail app (Mail.app) on iPhones and iPads that have upgraded to iOS 11 is not functioning as expected as users are unable to send or reply to email. Users can send or reply to emails using the web-based Office 365 email application or by installing another email application until this issue is fixed. At this time, Microsoft or Apple have not announced a solution.

What is happening? Over this past weekend, several hundred student email accounts were compromised as a result of a phishing scam. IST has been actively resolving issues with individual students since Monday morning and will continue to do so.
What is the impact? Accounts identified as having been compromised have been locked to prevent further issues. Since email accounts rely on WatIAM credentials, other services such as Nexus accounts, Quest, LEARN and WaterlooWorks are also affected.
