We have noticed that people with other Microsoft accounts are having this issue(if you have an email account through a colleges or university there is a good chance that they may also use office365 or a previous version of office365). If you have told your browser to use the “remember me” option below the username and password field you will notice that when you click on the email link from Microsoft’s home page you will get automatically redirected to another website. If this is happening you can try a couple things.

Before the webpage gets redirected you can click on the cancel button below the username and password field. Then use your meigs credentials to login. If you can’t seem to find that “cancel” button then you can try clearing your cookies and temporary internet files.
