I have confirmed this email was also sent to our members using federated authentication via InCommon.
Do these users really need to reset their password?
Since some users will not understand the difference and will follow the EDUCAUSE password reset procedure, what will happen to these member accounts?
Will they still be linked to the InCommon login process?
