ITS: is gradually migrating mailboxes across campus away from our old on-campus email system and up to Microsoft’s Office 365 cloud email service. We’d like to do migrations department by department, and the summer may be the best time for you to migrate.
Take a look at our web page describing the transition to Office 365 and then contact us to schedule your (or your department’s) migration.
Benefits of migrating to Office 365 include:
- Much bigger mailbox quota (50 GB up from 2 GB).
- One Drive (25 GB of cloud storage for your files, similar to Dropbox).
- Lync (an instant messaging and video conferencing tool).
The transition is usually quite smooth, with Outlook picking up new settings automatically. The only manual change should be reconfiguring your phone and tablet to connect to the new system. After the migration, we’ll come by in person to help out with those mobile device setups and to fix any problems that might come up.
So far, the following departments have successfully migrated to Office 365:
- Accessibility Resources
- Advancement (including Alumni Relations)
- Colket Center for Academic Excellence
- Crown Faculty Center
- Music Library
- Outdoor Education
- Tutt Library
As of today, all new CC email accounts will be created in Office 365.
