HOTMAIL Banned: As of August 22, 2012 the CALI organization has banned Hotmail Email Accounts due to a large number of spam issues. If you used a Hotmail Email Account to log in to CALI you have the following two options:
(1) Send an email to webmaster@CALI.org with your name and a non-Hotmail email address that you wish to use with your CALI account. The switch over will have to be done manually, so it’s entirely foreseeable that the process may get clogged up. If you want instant gratification and access….
(2) Create a new account using a non-Hotmail email address. Please note, if you do choose this option, you will lose all access to previous lesson run information. You will also need to obtain a valid authorization code. Speak with someone at the Computing Support Desk at the Public Services Desk for this information.
