Microsoft Teams and Internet Explorer

Recently I loaded up the Microsoft Teams app on my Windows 10 laptop and dealt with a minor issue where I was able to get to https://teams.microsoft.com quite easily when using Chrome or Firefox, but when trying to use Microsoft Internet Explorer 11 or Edge browser I was greeted with an endless loop of page refreshes until the page would just break.

What was going on?

Well, I was using a domain joined machine that was making use of automatic authentication through my domain credentials and a Trusted Identity Provider. Unfortunately I had forgotten to put https://teams.microsoft.com into my local intranet sites.

Once I did that I was off and running in IE and Edge.

So why am I writing this? Mostly to remind myself the next time that I run into this problem that I’ve dealt with it before.
