Office 365, BIE Email

How do I access my BIE email?

  • If you do not have a PIV Card, you are most likely not migrated to Office 365, and if this is the case, you can still access your BIE Email at, until you migrate over when you have a working PIV.  


1.  Insert your DOI-issued PIV card into your card reader 


2.  Open a web browser, and navigate to 


3.  When prompted to enter a username, enter your DOI UPN (ex: [email protected]) DO NOT use your BIE email address to log in.  


4.  You should then be redirected to a DOI page where you can select the option to “Sign in with PIV Card” (NOTE: You do not need to type in a password in the password box.) 


5.  When prompted, select your DOI PIV certificate, and then enter your PIN. 



If successful, you should now see the main Office 365 portal that will show all the apps you have access to. 



NOTE: If your Bureau or Office has provided you with the Outlook desktop application, please be mindful that caching your mailbox may take significant time and bandwidth availability may impact this.
