1. While we encourage you to use your company email for your SSI Nexus account, if your account is a Microsoft 365 account and your company manages the authentication for this account through an Active Directory / Federated Server (i.e. not through Microsoft themselves, but by linking up with their LAN/Domain authentication system), then we have had cases where this is not compatible with the authentication on SSI Nexus.
